International Reggae Artist Dactah Chando Releases His Eighth Album Called XXI

Dactah Chando, XXI

Dactah Chando, the international reggae singer from the Canary Islands launches his eighth studio album called: “XXI”.

Lyrics and melodies for this album were composed during the first lockdown, but the music was recorded previously in late 2018 while Chando was touring in Germany. Recorded in Berlin, at the famous Planet Earth Studios, during a break of the tour, Chando met some of the finest reggae players of Germany. With Frank Pollensi on keyboards, Florian Stahl on guitars, Tobi Nambur on drums, and himself on bass they recorded these tunes in a long session, played live with the four at the same time. Later on, songs were mixed and dub remixed by Umberto Echo. Eight tracks in total, four songs alongside their four dub versions, will be released on vinyl by demand later this month.
Dactah Chando is an artist who has something to tell. His lyrics are full of uplifting messages, good words with hope and positiveness to provide strength and courage in the troubled times we’re living in.

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.
