Rastaman Vibration in Atlanta on June 3

Reggae music with a potent message comes to Atlanta, Georgia on June 3 with the second Rastaman Vibration show, at the New Black Wall Street.

First held in 2017, COVID-19 forced its cancelation for the past three years. Conceptualiser and organiser IJahKnowah is looking forward to a successful comeback.

"The concept is to give the people more positive Rastaman vibration music… uplifting message music. Music is word, sound and power and once the positive music hit the mind of the people then it will transcend into a better society," he told OBSERVER ONLINE.

IJahKnowah, Binghi Blaze, Chi, Wara O and Chosi are the artistes confirmed for Rastaman Vibration.

Originally from St Thomas, IJahKnowah is a cousin of the Manning Brothers of The Abyssinians fame. Prior to moving to Atlanta, he lived in Chicago where he was part of that city's reggae scene.

He was lead singer of the Natural Force and Equal Rights bands before going solo. Three years ago, he released Wake Up, a six-song EP with his band BRAP who are also part of Rastaman Vibration.

While he is expecting a strong turnout, IJahKnowah stated that getting the message out is most important.

"Whether 10 or 10,00 the work must go on. The fans can expect positive vibration, Rastaman vibration, good music," he promised.
