2 - I KONG - PASS IT ON - (CD) 

Errol Kong, nephew of the famous producer Leslie Kong (Beverleys Records), starts his career at the beginning of the 60s with the band The Jamaicans. He then sings with Yabby Yous Prophets, as well as for the producer Lee "Scratch" Perry under his first artist name Ricky Storm, with Bunny Rugs, future Third Worlds singer, forming together the duet Ricky & Bunny.In 1972, he records his hit tune "The Way It Is" accompanied by the Inner Circle musicians, before releasing his first album in 1976. Genuine roots gem, vinyl-lovers have been craving for it until VP repressed the CD in 2006 and Iroko Records the vinyl in 2015. He then recorded a second album in 1982, Africa Calling, in Switzerland at the occasion of his exclusive visit in Europe.Forgotten legend from the golden-age of Jamaican music, I Kong was back in the forefront in 2015 after 35 years of silence with A Little Walk, a showcase album unanimously acclaimed by the specialized critique and which was followed by a first European tour. The author of unoverlookable hits like The Way It Is, Lifes Road or Babylon Walls is back in 2016 with a new album: Pass It On.Accompanied by his Swiss band, Najavibes, as well as Judy Mowatt, Ken Boothe and Raging Fyah, the one Jamaicans name "Icon" delivers a new and unquestionably roots record, whose aim is to pass values, a culture and a music stemming from another time on to the young generations.
