BUJU BANTON RASTA GOT SOUL RELEASE DATE SET
Buju Banton's highly anticipated roots reggae album, Rasta Got Soul is set for release on April 21.
Recorded over a seven year period at Buju's own Gargamel Music studio, the long-awaited project is finally set for physical and digital release in the United States and Canada.
Coincidentally, the date marks the 43rd anniversary of the late Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie's historic visit to Jamaica in 1966.
His most musically audacious work to date, Rasta Got Soul unites Buju Banton's characteristic vocals and consistently positive messages, grounded in the belief of Rastafari, with organic reggae rhythms carefully crafted by a select aggregation of the island's finest musicians.
Buju describes it: "Rasta Got Soul features nothing but soul shifting, uplifting reggae, to inspire, to thrill, to light an inner fire, to be glorified and rejuvenated; I just want to recreate that vibe when reggae music would speak to everyone."
