Here is a reggae artist with his own unique sound.
Jhikoman (MySpace click his name) is the best known Tanzanian reggae artist. His lyrics in English and Kiswahili and unique singing style have been touching people since 1994. For Jhiko music presents an opportunity to raise awareness about social oppression and injustice. It also provides a medium for communicating messages of peace, love and unity.
On his latest album Chikondi, Jhiko Manyika keeps exploring, combining roots reggae with acoustic African sounds. The album was realised in collaboration with other international artists including Baran M. from Kurdistan, Khalid Salih from Sudan, Uriel Seri from Ivory Coast, Thorbjørn Holte, Geir Inge Storli, Henrik Johnsen and “Jacob” from Norway, OnRebel G from Mexico and Sister Yana from Brazil. The journey continues for Jhiko Manyika to compose songs in a unique style without boundaries, a product of continued spiritual searching and musical experimentation.
