No other music had a deeper impact on Tom Strauch than Reggae. Since his teenager days he has been a huge fan of the music and the philosophy of Rastafari with the fight against racism and the yearning for peace, love and unity as core elements to the genre.
The connection of drums and bass in Reggae and its impact on the mind, body and soul has been the most important ingredient for Tom. Those rhythm patterns in connection with deep conscious lyrics is what makes Reggae such a spiritual music with its power to unite people in peace. By addressing topics as suppression, poverty or racism and praising the power of love and unity, Reggae music conquered the world and appealed to millions of people from all different ages, cultures and religions. It has spread to all corners of the world. As Bob Marley once said: “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”
The music selection for the show can be described as “rootical”, with the focus on positive and righteous messages. Tom Strauch plays a mix of analog vinyl and digital soundfiles.
