Mumma Trees is passionate about reggae and dancehall music! From photographing reggae artists, to promoting touring acts, performing live and presenting the music on Jamdown Vershun on RTRFM, she lives and breathes reggae and dancehall music

How did you become involved?

One day a friend and I wagged school (don’t tell my kids!) and visited the coolest radio station in the world RTRFM! A presenter spotted us and asked if we would like to pick a selection from the library and be his guests on air… been hooked on radio ever since!

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

If I could only have 5 albums to listen to for the rest of my life I would go insane! I love hearing new music, and it gives me a huge buzz to know that I am listening to a tune that right now is blasting out of a sound system in Kingston, a car in New York,  a street dance in Zimbabwe and a club in London at the same time! It gives me a feeling of connection with other reggae and dancehall lovers around the world!

What is the best thing about being involved with the station?

RTRFM presents such an eclectic and wide range of music, and the presenters are all so knowledgeable and passionate about their genres.  It is awesome to be part of a crazy insane group of people who love music with that kind of intensity.  There is a genuine feeling of camaraderie and respect amongst presenters, even though their musical tastes are so very different

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?

Having big name touring reggae artists like Gyptian, Anthony B, Cecile, Bushman and others pop in to Jamdown always seems surreal!

If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?

Other shows on RTRFM I highly rate and would present in a flash are Soul sides, Drastic on Plastic, Out to Lunch, and Breakfast…. I also love Underground Solution, but have a limited amount of music that could fill that show!

What do you do in real life?

Real life? Music IS real life for me! I DJ live with my all girl crew The Empressions, I promote reggae events and touring Jamaican artists, a bit of freelance (reggae) music journalism and photography, and love my kids to bits!
