Ivory Coast’s Tiken Jah Fakoly is one of the leading names in the contemporary roots reggae scene and a true icon to the African youth. He started making music at a young age and has worked with artists like Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, Zebda, Steel Pulse, Bernard Lavilliers and Akon in the years since. In 20 years he’s built an amazing legacy, featuring over 10 albums that each share an important societal message. Tiken Jah Fakoly doesn’t avoid sensitive themes and uses a healthy dose of arrogance to make things happen, as he does on his latest album ‘Le Monde est Chaud’, on which he tackles global warming. The music remains center stage though and Fakoly throws the best parties wherever he performs. We’re glad to see him again!
