Catch the new single by the legendary Panafrican voice of reggae music, announcing a brand new and much awaited album “Braquage De Pouvoir”(Power Heist in French), out on November 4th.

Atop a rich orchestration calling on mesmerising kora, balafon and flute instruments together with an imperial brass section, Tiken Jah Fakoly delivers a moving and courageous plea denouncing religious extremism, a contemporary poison and threat to the African continent (amongst others). The Rasta and Muslim singer living in Bamako knows only too well the dangers he speaks of here.

A powerful track with a strong and palpable message following in the footsteps of his Jamaican forefather Bob Marley.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
