about

Fresh off years of nonstop listening to Ghana's hottest dance genre - Azonto, Kush decided to blend this tradition with two unique and powerful reggae singers, giving a new voice to this already popular style. Taking inspiration using analog drum machines and blending his dub and cinematic styles, he finds balance between dance energy of Azonto and the laid back swing of reggae skanks.

First off Blackout JA from London brings the message of freedom and protest in "Fight For Liberation." Known for his uncanny raw
Buju Banton like vocals, he's done work with Dreadsquad, Mr Benn, and is part of a crew with Daddy Freddy and High Power Music. He's performed at Sting in Jamaica and alongside the likes of Sly and Robbie, Luciano, and countless others.

Pops Jabu from Zimbabwe, now resides in Denmark and takes it up a notch using the bantu languages as a tool to urge the Ubunto unification. He's had releases on UrbanWorld recordings, and brings a unique approach to reggae with the Ubunto and Zimbabwe flavor. He can be found performing in Denmark and across Europe.
