Reggae prodigy, Zion, talks about his childhood in the West Indies and the Virgin Islands donde vivio mucho tiempo without electricity or running water, how that struggle was an inspiration to write the música he writes today and how living between two religions, Christianity and Rastafarianism, made him question his identity.
