Jahcoustix has been touring around the globe for more than 22 years and has played over 2,000 shows in more than 40 countries. He spent most of his childhood and youth in Africa, where he became aware of the extreme poverty and social injustice from an early age. Discovering Reggae at the age of 15 provided answers to many questions and was the main inspiration and drive for Jahcoustix’s first own compositions. In the late 90s Jahcoustix returned to Germany and in the following years became an active part of the flourishing reggae scene in Europe. Same as artists like Gentleman and Patrice, Jahcoustix became an identification figure for a new generation of young Reggae listeners in Germany. Festivals such as the famous Montreux Jazz Festival, but also appearances at germany´s biggest Festivals Rock am Ring and Rock im Park are only some of the many highlights that adorn his career to this day. Jahcoustix has released 8 studio albums and countless singles (e.g. World Citizen feat. Shaggy) and has released songs together with some of his greatest reggae heroes (e.g. Horace Andy, Israel Vibration, Akte Beka). In times of global paradigm shifts and complex social debates, it is more important than ever to spread hope though music.
