Felton Music Hall Presents:
Alborosie: For the Culture U.S. Tour with special guests F.Y.A.H. and Jwadi
“Music knows no boundaries,” announced David Rodigan on Alborosie's debut album. “Music is an international force, an international language. From Sicily to Kingston, Jamaica, this is Alborosie. Real, authentic reggae music.”
Twelve years later and the Sicilian-born Alborosie headlines festivals around the world and has earned the respect of the entire reggae industry. A talented writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist who sings as well as deejays, he’s lived in Kingston for over a decade and is now a leading light of Jamaica's resurgent music scene thanks to a series of widely acclaimed albums on Greensleeves.
The latest is Unbreakable: Alborosie Meets The Wailers United, released on June 29th and that's shared with members of Bob Marley's former backing band The Wailers.
“Bob Marley was one of my idols," says Alborosie. "He was the greatest in terms of spirituality, musicality and everything else but this is about the Wailers, because they have a chemistry that goes beyond Bob. They are a legendary band and until the end of time their name will always be there. That's why I call the album Unbreakable because it's the sound of the musicians themselves and when they come together, it's just magic."
F.Y.A.H. is the latest project of Delroy "Pele" Hamilton, a co-founder, leader, and bassist of the popular Jamaican reggae band Raging Fyah. With three albums, including the GRAMMY-Nominated album "Everlasting" under his belt, Pele decided to dive deeper into music production when the pandemic hit and isolation became the new normal. “I challenged myself to become a better writer, musician, producer and this led to the birth of F.Y.A.H.”
Pele's journey to F.Y.A.H has been long and winding, but these experiences have allowed him to create music that resonates deeply with people. "The power of music is when it comes straight from the heart. That's when it truly connects with people. They can feel that vibration," he says. While reggae still remains at the core of F.Y.A.H., Pele also incorporated other genres and influences to create a unique sound that reflects his personal journey and experiences. "I have a deep love for reggae music, but as a musician, I also appreciate other styles. You'll hear those influences in this new F.Y.A.H. project, but at the heart of it all, it's always reggae music. I'm not trying to change that," Pele explains.
Pele collaborated with talented musicians, including guitarist Nicolas Groskopf and vocalist Elton Earlington, to create F.Y.A.H.'s debut album, "Free Your Authentic Heart." This album features a dozen new tracks of roots reggae style with a message of hope, resilience, and love. "I poured my heart into these songs. This is me, not an act," Pele shares.
