After ten years in the making, Victoria BC Ska s first ever Canadian appearance.Alborosie is a shining example of a person that defied the odds with sheer determination, heart and raw talent. Born in Marala, Sicily, Alberto DAscola is a versatile musician that plays guitar, drums and keyboards in addition to being a world renowned singer and living legend.He was first a part of a successful Italian reggae band called Reggae National Tickets in the early 90s. After almost ten years with that band his love for reggae and desire to be closer to the Rasta culture, brought Alborosie to the Island of Jamaica, in 2001.While in Jamaica despite being first tagged with the name Borosie, (a name with a negative connotation) DAscola used the skills and experience he built prior to his arrival to work as a sound engineer with artists such as Ky-mani Marley and Wyclef. In tandem working with those artists, Alborosie launched his solo career. Long after moving to Jamaica Alborosie said in an interview, I never came here to be popular. I never wanted to top the charts or be a billionaire. I dont care about that. I just wanted to be close to the music that I loved and that I couldnt find in Italy.Alborosies first solo album Soul Pirate in 2008 received international acclaim and rose to the top ten on the reggae Billboard charts. The anthem Kingston Town off that album is still the most popular song Alborosie has to this day. Since Soul Pirate, Alborosie has gone on to international stardom in the reggae world working with numerous living legends such as Chronixx, Sizzla, Protoje, Gentleman and The Wailers.In fact his recent release in 2018 called Unbreakable: Alborosie Meets the Wailers United was one of the singers best-received albums to date, featuring collaborations with J Boog, Jah Cure and of course members of the Wailers. The album rose to the Top Ten of Billboards reggae charts.The confirmation of Alborosie with his band the Shengen Clan in Victoria BC is a special milestone for Victoria BC Ska & Reggae Society and for reggae fans throughout Western Canada.Supporting Alborosie s roots reggae party rockers ARISE ROOTS. This will be only Arise Roots second Canadian appearance after their first Canadian debut at Victorias 16th Annual Ska s House of Shem. Anyone that has had the opportunity to see ARISE ROOTS know theyre a root reggae fans paradise.
