With Global Cityzen, Dactah Chando drops his sixth album. After the lively CanarianReggae artist has successfully caught on tape and published a good dose of spirited concert vibes with his 2017 live album Live At Reggae Can Festival, now, Chando fans worldwide can look forward to nine new songs released through Achinech Productions. Dactah Chando, the Godfather of Canarian Style Reggae, produced Global Cityzen in cooperation with head engineer Umberto Echo and Gentleman’s current live band The Evolution. Global Cityzen will be in stores from April 2018.
Stylistically confident Roots Riddims, made up of well-selected Reggae features, build the longplayer’s musical foundation. Thereby, Ska inspired stylistics; from the late sixties as in Every Day, as well as ancient Nyabinghi heartbeats (FRIEND) and striding One Drops (CHILDREN OF JAH) pervade the album’s overall mystic spirit. Royal and majestic brass sections in the title song (GLOBAL CITIZEN) additionally underline the dignity inherent in its songs’ topics, while driving up-tempo Steppers beats (FOREVER, WILL WAIT) emphasize the easiness and bliss inherent in them.
In typical Chando style, jumping back and forth from Spanish to English, the Dactah passionately sings about his emotions regarding Mother Nature (RING THE ALARM) and worldly, as well as spiritual love (FRIEND). This album is home to an energetic plea for equality and individuality, consciousness and the divinity of live.
MY WAY and its Spanish equivalent SIGUE TU CAMINO close the album and manifest an idea inspired by Blue Phlamez Records from Jamaica, which developed from an interview with 93FM radio host Shavane Jamaine Daley back in 2016.
From Tenerife to Jamaica, form Africa to Europe, from island to island and mainland to mainland, with Global Cityzen, the exceptional vibe of Dactah Chando will no longer remain accessible through his studio work alone. In April 2018, the Global Cityzen Europe Tour offers a unique chance to experience Dactah Chando and The Evolution live in concert on their musical trip around the world entitled Global Cityzen.
