Live Reggae Revival Performance in Toronto with Nkrumah at the El Mocambo!

Tuesday April 8th, 2014 - Toronto’s Reggae community is in for a Roots Reggae treat as Nkrumah, one of Canada’s leading vocalists of that genre, performs live on Saturday April 19th, 2014 at the legendary El Mocambo, continuing in the theme of Reggae Revival!

 

With his most recent releases receiving international acclaim (“Reggae Mylytis” and “Dada Control”), as well as his music video for Reggae Mylytis being in rotation on CEEN TV, Nkrumah’s brand is being embraced by fans around the world.  On Saturday April 19th, 2014, Nkrumah will perform a full set with a live band at El Mocambo in Toronto.

 

Backed by the Rebel Alliance band, Nkrumah’s performance is one of the most anticipated on the Roots Reggae calendar as performing at the legendary music venue is not easily come by, and is reserved for iconic talents such as The Rolling Stones, U2, Sting and Bruce Springsteen to name a few.  When asked how this opportunity came about, Nkrumah replied “El Mocambo has always been supportive of good talent, regardless of the genre, and are welcoming of Roots Reggae so we will be there on April 19th!”  His manager, Clif, aka Tuff Boyz added “there is a need for live Roots Reggae to be performed in the City of Toronto, and we are thankful that a venue such as the El Mo is here to give us this opportunity.”

 

Nkrumah’s performance comes on the heels of two new releases that will be added to his growing catalog.  Titled “Flirt” and “Prayer” were produced, mixed and mastered in Paris, France by I Love Sound and Seedness, though the vocals were recorded in Toronto.  Both singles will be released in a few weeks on the I Love Sound label.

 

Fans who would like to purchase advanced tickets can do so at the El Mocambo box office (495 Spadina Avenue – Toronto). 

 

About Nkrumah:

Blessed with a deep baritone voice, and active with the knowledge of his history, Nkrumah carries the Roots Reggae baton passed on by greats such as Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes, Ranking Toyan and Eek-A-Mouse.  His music and messages resonate with listeners around the world just as a ripple in a lake becomes waves in the sea as he keeps the essence of the past present, while adding his own vibrations to the mix.

 

About the El Mocambo:

The El Mocambo was opened as a music venue in 1850.  The building was first used as a haven for escaped slaves.  The name and famous El Mocambo palm tree sign were erected in 1946.  Musical acts appeared on separate stages located on the main and second floor of the building.
