BUJU BANTON

ANT

Over the last ten years, the name Buju Banton (a.k.a. Gargamel) has become synonymous with modern reggae. Having metamorphosed from a brash teenage phenomenon into a self assured deejay and singer, Buju's fusion of traditional roots rock, contemporary R&B and dancehall DJ'ing have earned him a prophet like status in his Jamaican homeland.

Undoubtedly, Buju is one of the most popular musicians in Jamaican history, having hit the charts there suddenly in 1992, with a string of hits including "Bogle", "Love Me Browning" and "Love Black Woman", all three of which were massive hits in Jamaica and less so abroad. Soon afterwards, Banton released one of the more controversial songs in his musical catalogue - "Boom Boom Bye Bye".

In his “Unchained Spirit” album, it is said that Buju demonstrates unfettered devotion to his craft by extending his trademark toasting skills into the realms of rock steady, ska, gospel, African highlife and American soul. Among the bevy of guests featured on Unchained Spirit is fellow raga sensation Luciano, Sunsplash luminary Morgan Heritage and punk rock compadres Rancid.
