General Admission / All Ages WelcomeAlborosie, born Alberto D’Ascola in 1977, is a reggae artist born in Marsala – Sicily, Italy, but now residing in Kingston, JA. He is a multi-instrumentalist, being proficient in guitar, bass, drums and piano.
In 2001 Alborosie decided to try a solo career. He moved to Jamaica to be close to reggae music’s roots and Rastafari culture. There, he started working as sound engineer and producer.
He has also worked with artists like Gentleman, Ky-Mani Marley. His first solo album was called Soul Pirate. In the summer of 2009, he released his second album which was called “Escape from Babylon.
The name ‘Alborosie’ comes from a name he was given in his early years in Jamaica. “Borosie was what they used to call me. Let me put it like this. My early experience in Jamaica was… not nice. Borosie was a name they used to call me and it have a negative meaning. So I said “I’m gonna use this name and mash up the place turn a negative into a positive thing!”. Basically,, my name is Albert so I add “Al” – Al-borosie. But I’m not gonna tell
you what borosie mean!”
Alborosie’s hits include “Rastafari Anthem”, “Kingston Town”, and “Call Up Jah”. Alborosie recently started his own record label, Forward Recordings. He has given concerts all round the world, including most of Europe and Jamaica.
