Sattayah-Omari Chang, Lidj Yassu, and Kwame Taijan created the promotions company Sankofa Sound to keep an old-school reggae vibe alive in Miami Beach. "It blossomed in five months," Chang says. "It really tells me about what people want to hear and what was missing." Sankofa sticks with roots and conscious reggae, "not just the jumbled stuff because it is popular," adds Chang. As host of Rockerz Wednesday, Sankofa Sound adds vintage tunes to the contemporary rotation. Angela Boucher
