Social Epidemiology Soundtracks


Click on the “Play in Spotify” buttons in the Social Epi Radio pages and the mixes will automatically start playing on Spotify’s webpage.

Under the new “Social Epi Radio” menu tab we will start posting thematically curated music collections. Not so much “radio on the internet” but Spotify playlists that will load the Spotify app and start playing our list.  Artists in popular music traditions like folk, blues, reggae, punk, hip hop and rock have frequently used their music to point to social needs and disparities and in some instances have changed the national and international conversation on these issues.  We are organizing a series of playlists of songs about key social factors that influence health and well being.  Each mix will be accompanied by links to key literature, popular press articles and/or Info-Graphix on the featured topic.

Up first is a mix of Ska and Reggae songs about the trials and tribulations of living in disadvantaged inner city neighborhoods.  Many of the pioneers of Ska and Reggae came from impoverished neighborhoods in Jamaica and life in these neighborhoods was a common theme to their music.
