Live Roots Reggae...
If you're a fan of the likes of Bob Marley and Steel Pulse then you'll love the Golty Farabeau Band.
Golty Farabeau is a Roots Reggae and Sega musician from the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. His music reflects the beauty and relaxed lifestyle of his homeland, his lyrics draw attention to learning to survive between the dregs of colonial influence and incoming socialist governments.
A self-taught musician, Golty first toured professionally as a teenager, playing bass for a well-known Mauritian artist. Since then he has travelled widely across the world, becoming a major name in The Seychelles and well regarded for his compositions, rich voice and unique basslines. His own chosen highlights include playing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1993, his group making a Swatch advert in the same year and receiving a gold medal at the Isles Jeux de la Francophonie in Madagascar in 1997. He has so far produced nine solo albums.
Golty settled in the UK 15 years ago where he formed his band Golty Farabeau and The Jahmadou. He has played at the Cultural Collage Music Festival in Manchester (2012), Mintfest in Kendal and on the Albert Square stage at Manchester International Festival in 2013.
