Roots reggae siren Likkle Mai branches out

You could call Likkle Mai a reggae singer, and you wouldn’t be wrong. But you wouldn’t be quite right either.

The diminutive vocalist– “likkle” is Jamaican patois for “little”–is nothing less than a reggae evangelist, intent on spreading the gospel far and wide. But rather than preach to the converted, as she arguably did while singing for the acclaimed, authenticity-minded group Dry & Heavy, Likkle Mai is reaching out to a less specialized audience.
