ALBOROSIE & SHENGEN CLAN ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN TOUR AND DEBUT LONDON DATE
APRIL 10th, 2014- ELECTRIC BRIXTON
7PM – 11PM / Strictly 18+ Show
GoMad Events, DeepBrass Prod. & Intergalactic Music are proud to announce the debut London show, and only London date of the European Spring Tour: ALBOROSIE & Shengen Clan LIVE at Electric Brixton on April 10, 2014, with support from: Mr. FASO (Rootikal) and BRIXTON HEIGHTS Crew.
The genesis of Sicilian-born Alberto D'Ascola, aka Alborosie, can be blamed on an elixir of fate, talent, technology and most of all, determination. Born and raised in Sicily, but now residing in Kingston, Jamaica, the multi-instrumentalist Alborosie's music career began with forming his own band Reggae National Tickets (signed to BMG Italia), at the age of 15.
After multiple sold-out tours, the Italian artist with a Reggae pedigree decided to make a move to Jamaica to be close to reggae music's roots and Rastafari culture and begin his solo career.
In 2011, he became the first white artist to win a MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Award in the Best Reggae Act category.
After a successful tour throughout South America and Europe in 2013; performing on renowned stages such as Montreux Jazz Festival, Solidays, Garorock, Dour Festival, Summerjam, Rototom, to mention a few, Alborosie and his Jamaican backing band Shengen Clan have built a huge following worldwide and have shared the stage with some of the worlds biggest international Reggae artists.
Well-known for his unbelievable energy during live shows, Alborosie starts the year at top speed and is excited to be performing in the UK for the first time.
To date, Alborosie has worked with credible artists such as Mario, Angie Stone, Jewel, Sisqo, No Doubt, Wyclef and Les Nubians. He has also collaborated with All-stars Dean Frazer, Beenie Man, Lutan Fya and a number of other Jamaican artists.
