PEETAH & UNA CONVERSE WITH CLASH.COM

“This album is called ‘Strictly Roots’. Can you break down what that is all about?

Peetah: First and foremost it’s about the music but it’s more than just about the music. When we say “strictly roots” we talking about everything in existence, ’cause no matter what it is who it is where it’s from, everything comes from something, everything has a roots.
