Rohan Lee due in The Gambia

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Rohan Lee, a Jamaican born young reggae star, will arrive in the The Gambia very soon on a promotion tour of his third CD album entitled  “Jah Singing Son”.
Born to the late king of reggae, Bob Marley by an Asian mother, the young Jamaican rising star’s new album calls for the plight of the poor people across the world.
In an Interview with What’s On, Mr. Dee, a member of Icon Sound Station, a Jamaican based recording company, said Rohan Lee is currently in Belgium where he will perform at a summer festival before arriving in the Gambia.

“This is a promotion tour of his third CD Album. The Icon Sound Station established seven years ago, aims to promote positive and conscious reggae music worldwide. Its currently organising “All Africa Tour” beginning in The Gambia, in West, East and Southern Africa” he said.
The Jamaican promoter added that Icon Sound Station has contracted many artists like Rohan Lee, Ras Zamouda, Baba Tundeh, Ras Alkibou, Baby Burns and a group called Kush among others.

According to him, the Jamaican based record company also organised several state shows to promote young artists. “Our main focus is to take reggae to the people of West Africa. Right now, some of the constraints that we are facing is a lack of sponsorships to bring the Jamaican artist to the country to perform as reggae is so popular in The Gambia. Mr. Dee continued that, this young star is very popular in Europe as he regularly attends shows, and is also a music maestro who plays some instrument professionally.

“He writes music and composes his lyrics himself. The people who love reggae music will surely love Roha’s music. He sings exactly like his late father, Bob Marley. His first album was really wonderful and we are expecting a mega successful tour this time around,” Mr. Dee concluded.
