Welcome to “The Rolê of Monkey Man”, the new album from Monkey Jhayam!
Singer and songwriter since 2008 and one of the most prominent Toaster/MC of the sound system culture in Brazil, Monkey Jhayam represents the voice that comes from the streets of the east side of São Paulo, Brazil. His message, conscious lyrics and militancy coupled with several special guest appearances and musical production by the great English producer Prince Fatty, all come together to form an instant classic album released by the legendary American label Delicious Vinyl and his Jamaican arm Delicious Vinyl Island, with support from Deska Sound System and Vinyl Land Records from Brazil.
The album features 12 songs with great musicians such as Dub Judah (Twinkle Brothers), Black Steel and Mafia, Lenny Edwards and Kashta Tafari, with guest appearances by world-renowned singers such as Fatlip (Pharcyde), Nina Miranda (Smoke City), Horseman, Tippa Irie, Earl 16, Shniece Mcmenamin and Omar Lye-Fook.
Maintaining the tradition and the unique sound of Jamaican musical production with a Brazilian twist, the album takes us on a trip back to the Caribbean island that has taken the whole planet by storm with its unique way of expressing its affections and feelings through music, Reggae music!
