Ragga Jahmari drops debut single
Up-and-coming reggae artiste Ragga Jahmari is looking forward to a bright future in the music industry.
"I guess you could say that I was born to do music. I've been around music all my life. My father [Grammy award-winning producer/engineer Nigel Burrell] has worked with a lot of top reggae artistes, including the late Toots Hibbert and Beres Hammond. From as far back as I can remember I was always eager to go to the studio with him and if he said no, I would cry. Going to the studio with my dad allowed me to learn about music production. I also learned how to play a variety of musical instruments," said the artiste.
The talented singer/musician, who began his musical journey at age eight, is confident that it won't be long before he becomes a household name in reggae music.
"I don't like to brag but I believe I have the talent and the skills to become a major force in the music industry. I've also received a lot of guidance over the years from my parents and other persons, including Toots Hibbert, Beres Hammond, Ansel Collins and my uncle George Miller (Fire House Crew drummer)," said Ragga Jahmari.
The artiste recently released his debut single which is titled Strong Melanin. The song, which was co-produced by him and his father, was released on the Supa Mix Productions imprint on August 1.
