Jah Rootsman / Bio

Jah Rootsman, Dub Poet Eminent, writes mystifyingly, eclectic poetry that deals with secularism, spirituality and sedition; fusing it with the strong beat of the Reggae Dub Riddim.

Jah Rootsman compliments the powerful message inherent in all his poetry, and basically utilises videos as a means of publishing his works to an as much wider audience as can be reached. His video Blog is: http://ijahrootsman.wordpress.com/?sn=s To this effect, 2011 saw a slew of self-produced, conscious videos from all three his albums, to the delight, awe and acclaim of the followers he has generated. He regularly receives permission requests to televise or airplay his poetry globally and can also be followed on all major social sites, to stay abreast of his activities.

The hallmark of the ital quality of Dub Poetry Jah Rootsman is generating, is pushing the boundaries in poetry rendition by shifting the paradigms of Poetry and Dub. With his live performances, Jah Rootsman transforms poetry rendition into an aesthetically visual art.

Jah Rootsman, besides the Hon. Bob Marley, is the only Reggae Superstar who, with boldness and intrepidity, successfully adapted His Imperial Majesty, King Haile Selassie I's 1969 UN Address to him own DUB POETRY RIDDIM called H. I. M. CHANT on his “DREADMAN CHANT” album.
