A renowned Jamaican artist who was launched onto the scene in the second half of the nineties, Anthony B is loved by the European public for the energy of his live shows and his references to roots and culture but also for his energy, appreciated by dancehall lovers.
From his first hits, under the label StarTrail, his discography has been expanded with a large number of masterpieces of “new roots”, sung in his unique way of interpreting the “singjay style”.
With his latest CD “Freedom fighter”, produced by the Austrian label Irie Vibrations, he has literally returned to the top. Physical fatigue meant that Anthony B had to stop touring last October, but he is currently making up for the shows he cancelled on his European tour and we hope he will be in even better health for the 20th Rototom Sunsplash!
