New Date!Chaka Demus & Pliers Stockholm concert moved forward to August 4 due to staff reasons. New date is Tuesday 4
The stars come out at night and for Reggae lover the reggae stars come out in July and August. The Öland Roots 2009 has sadly just finished but the Uppsala reggae festival is only a few weeks away. But if you are unable to attend the festivals here are a few alternative events to satisfy all reggae lovers;
Chaka Demus & Pliers
Best known for their beautiful 90’s song Tease me, Murder she wrote, Butterfly, Bam Bam, Gal wine and last, but not least, "Twist and Shout" this famous reggae pair will perform an exclusive gig at Göta cellar, Folkkungatan 45 in Stockholm 4th August, special guest Danjah.
Chaka Demus & Pliers were the first Jamaican artists ever to have had three top five hit songs with the hit "Twist and Shout" (based on The Isley Brothers song with the same title) being the most successful. Not even Bob Marley can match the success, which Chaka Demus and Pliers achieved on the English singles charts.
While Urbanlife continues to search for all the best sounds enjoy this old time sound of Courtney John – Lucky Man. The second release from his third album “Made in Jamaica” (released in April 09) this is a classic throwback to the wonderful Lover Rock/Ska era. More please!!!
Some voices are so distinctive they simply rise above the rest. Reggae singer, Etanas’ vocals stand out in the song Blessings, which also features reggae rapper Albrosie. Blessings is featured on Etanas’ Debut Album ‘The Strong One’ (2008) which also boasts a simply stunning cover.
Urbanlife.se is itself a world dedicated to promoting urban culture and music but this time, we thought about delving into a hidden world – the world where a religion found its melody.
Though Reggae is now something everyone’s exposed to and is extremely popular here In Sweden, much of the larger population has no idea about its inception and goal. We hope you find our explanations sufficient to enter deep into this particular domain that is still vastly unexplored.
“It's about peace, peace, peace! Love the Lord God with all your heart. And love your neighbour as yourself.''
