Managua Taxi Reggae











A couple of years ago I was passing through Managua, the capital of Nicaragua. The city has a fearsome reputation for taxidriver muggers that regularly rob passengers at gunpoint. Me and my mate got in a taxi, tired and paranoid from a long overnight bus journey. Just after a street kid had kicked our car, the driver asked us where we wanted to go, popped in a cd and turned it up loud. Cruising around the city at high speed, we heard some classics by Supacat and Cutty Ranks followed by some amazing early reggaeton. I liked it so much I persuaded him to swap it with a Belize bashment mix which he seemed to like. I don't know any of the artists as it didn't have a sleeve but some of the tracks are heavy. I like to think the international love for dancehall stopped us getting robbed and I hope that guy likes that bashment mix. Cheers mate !
