114 - Reggae Lover - Alborosie and Gentleman

Today's mix featured Gentleman from Germany and Alborosie from Italy.

Gentleman has been active in the music business since 1998 and is now signed to the Universal Music. He is the best-known reggae artist from Germany. The son of a Lutheran Pastor, his lyrical content contains no swearing or no gun talk. He expresses a deep belief in God. Love, unity and spiritual themes are prevalent in his music.

Gentleman collaborated with Ky-Mani Marley on a 2016 album, “Conversations.” He has been back and forth between Cologne, Germany, and Kingston, Jamaica ever since the age of 18. He collaborated with Richie Stephens on the album “Live Your Life.” He has worked with Toots and the Maytals, Sizzla, Sugar Minott, Konshens, Sean Paul, Morgan Heritage, and Shaggy, among others.

Alborosie is the most well-known international reggae artist from Italy. His parents are of Albanian descent, but Alborosie was born in Marsala, Sicily, Italy and now resides in Kingston, Jamaica. He is a sound engineer and producer who plays guitar, drums, bass, and keyboard. Alborosie’s career started at age 15 in Bergamo, Italy as a member of the Reggae National Tickets band. He went solo in 2001 to and moved to Jamaica to be closer to the roots of the music.

In 2011 he became the first white artist in history to win a MOBO (Music Of Black Origin) Award in the UK for the Best Reggae Artist category. He did a dub album with King Jammy and has producing dub albums of his own. His 2018 project, “Unbreakable: Alborosie meets The Wailers United” is available now. You can hear five songs from that album on this mix. Also, listen for notable 2018 collaborations with Chronixx and Protoje.

I hope you enjoy this music. These artists are carrying the reggae banner around the world and have been for over 2 decades. They are representing the music and there’s nothing you can take away from these reggae soldiers. Respect is due to every artist and aspiring musician no matter where you are in the world. Reggae music is a uniting force and an international movement. Thank you for listening to episode 114 of the Reggae Lover podcast.

One love!
