A wonderful testament to first class reggae from wherever and whenever.

Sampler

The long-standing Brazilian outfit Tribo De Jah, led by Fauzi Beydoun, has been making excellent roots rock reggae for more than a couple of decades now, and this set once again presents their top-notch approach.

Tribo De Jah - Pedra de SalaoThey have a strong sense of melody, reminding the listener of Bob Marley or even moreso, Peter Tosh at times,whilst other tracks here opt for a late 70 style, or occasionally the sweet sound of rocksteady.

Fauzi’s vocals are largely in Portuguese, though he does sometimes sing in English – the beautiful ‘A Ilha Do Tesouro’ is also present here as the closing ‘Treasure Island’. The other band members provide some wonderful harmonies on many songs too.

There is a subtle dub touch to ‘Ilha Roots’, and the band’s anti-establishment stance comes through even to non-Portuguese speakers, thanks to opposition to global corporations, and overall the sound is close to that of some of the best African reggae, with some subtle South American flavouring adding a unique touch, and the whole CD a wonderful testament to first class reggae from wherever and whenever…
