DubTafari Sound… In His Words

The thing with brethren Cali P is one of pure Jah Connection. We first met each other in Kingston, Jamaica, where we had already voiced a few dubplates. During that time, I had made rolling papers for his album ‘Healing of the nation’.

In Zurich, we have a mutual friend, Marko aka Dr. Marihuanović, who also distributes Ziggi papers in Switzerland with his Smokers Excellence company. We joined forces and set up shop, a booth at Cannatrade – the international cannabis expo in Zurich. Cali P was promoting his upcoming album ‘i Thoughts’ while offering signed copies of his past CDs and LPs along with his new Ziggi papers. We also had a reggae session, kind a private party for the exhibitors of the Cannatrade where he sang few songs soundsystem style and I played for few hours. And Cali P said to me at the expo that he loved how we bring reggae to the ganja massive that are not reggae audience. That’s a good thing for reggae music, I love that!

We listen to his new upcoming album and voice few dubplates that one of them ‘Food inna di yard’ you can hear now exclusive as Dubtafari dubplate on Irie magazine two weeks before official release.
