Hot on the heels of winning Best Reggae Album at the 2023 Grammys for his LP ‘The Kalling’ - Jamaican reggae sensation Kabaka Pyramid embarks on a celebratory tour of the UK and Europe this month.
Kabaka’s UK stretch spans London, Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester, including dates at iconic London spot The Jazz Cafe (which is now sold out) and Manchester’s renowned Blues Kitchen. In Europe, Kabaka will be taking his socially conscious brand of hip-hop inspired reggae across the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Italy, France, Spain, Czech Republic and Switzerland.
A key pillar of today’s Reggae Revival movement, Kabaka Pyramid carved his way into the Jamaican reggae scene with Rebel Music in 2011 with marquee songs like ‘Free from Chains’ and ‘Warrior’ featuring Protoje. His hip hop roots were evident in his lyrical style and hard-hitting beats, laying the foundation for an ever-ascending career that has included features for Chase and Status and Rudimental, culminating so far with his 2023 Grammy-winning album The Kalling.
Produced by Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, the fifteen-track masterpiece features some frequent collaborators like Damian Marley, Protoje, Black Am I, Jesse Royal, as well as new collaborators like the legendary Buju Banton and Stephen Marley. His sophomore album (following debut ‘Kontraband’), ‘The Kalling’ is a symphony of high level contemporary reggae, which speaks to the listener on the highest of planes, the clearest most accurate musical statement about the evolution of his craft.
“The Kalling is really about my journey in music being for a higher purpose, not just to get rich or popular, but to inspire a higher vibration in whoever listens. Kabaka Says - “While the majority seek pleasure and sense gratification, there are a few who the Most High kall upon to keep the balance inna earth. Music is what I use to answer the kall and you can feel it throughout this album”
With further productions from Kabaka Pyramid, Stephen Marley, and Young Pow, some of the LP’s highlight singles include; title track ‘The Kalling Ft. Stephen Marley, Protoje & Jesse Royal’, ‘Make Things Work’, ‘Red, Gold & Green Ft. Damian Marley’, ‘Grateful Ft. Jemere Morgan’ and most recently ‘Faded Away Ft. Buju Banton’.
