Emmanuel Anebsa brings 'groove conscious' music
Reggae singer Emmanuel Anebsa said that he hopes fans will get the message of perseverance in the face of rising financial and social oppression encoded in the music of his new album St Paul's Ghetto.
The nine-track album will showcase what Anebsa dubs "groove conscious" music – black protest music delivered in acoustic form.
He wrote and produced all the songs for Wontstop Record, an independent label in the UK.
Growing up in the tough neighbourhood of St Paul's in Bristol, southwest England, the artiste saw West Indian immigrants and black Britons struggling to gain a foothold in the country.
He is the product of a Jamaican father and an English mother. His father owned the Black and White Café in St Paul's, before the infamous 1981 race riots in Britain.
"Groove conscious music or ghetto folk acoustic is an expression of that oppression. My music combines with a guitar to render a beautiful sound, a universal sound which cannot be held back. It is impossible to hold back this infectious music forged from soul and pain and fight," Anebsa said.
Wontstop Record is best known for the single, Change My Life which is Anesba's most popular song to date.
