Alborosie: Escape From Babylon, 1st US Tour

Friday, January 29, 2010

Caribbean Lifestyle Media-Alborosie is set to kick off his tour on the West Coast of the United States. This tour carries the same title as his upcoming album, Escape From Babylon To The Kingdom Of Zion. This album features the likes of David Hinds of Steel Pulse and Gramps Morgan.

Alborosie has kept in line with tradition and stated that "this album is paying respect to his heroes in the Reggae golden age". The tour will start from Arcata, California and end in Long Beach California.
Included on 2009's One Drop Riddims is "Humbleness", which Alborosie said is about those that are blinded by the power they possess and decides to treat his fellow man as if they were something less.

About Alborosie

Born Alberto D’Ascloa in Sicily, Italy; at 15 he created a reggae band called Reggae National Ticket. Signed to BMG Italia, they enjoyed huge success and record sales in excess of 200,000 units. Already wanting to leave his “Italian Babylon” Alborosie decided to quit the band, get rid of all his possessions and move to Jamaica. Looking to find a place he could call his spiritual home, Alborosie immersed himself fully into the music, the people and culture of the island. Soon after, Alborosie embarked on making a name for himself as a reggae artist. His self-penned singles “Herbalist” and “Kingston Town” released in 2008 did well in Jamaica and in the UK with strong radio support. He released “Call On Jah” and “Rastafari Anthem” in late 2008 and collaborated with some of the island’s biggest artists including Luciano, Michael Rose, Morgan Heritage, Ky-Mani Marley, Jah Cure, Beenie Man and most recently with Etana on the superb “Blessings”.
