There is an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica and industry experts and observers agree that Protoje is playing an important role in what is becoming known as the “Reggae Revival.” Together with Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid and others he is part of the Jah Ova Evil movement, trying to bring more roots reggae and positive attitude back to the Jamaican Music.
Leading the militant band – The Indiggnation – this powerful songwriter and philosophical thinker articulates the righteous anger of an emerging generation. Protoje reports for duty, re-establishing the standard for the decaying art of socially responsible, mentally stimulating lyricism.
After successfully releasing 2 Albums “The Seven Year Itch” and “The 8 Year Affair” which spawned Rasta Love ft Ky-Mani Marley and Kingston Be Wise, which was featured in Grand Theft Auto, Protoje releases his 3rd Studio Album titled Ancient Future in 2015.
Protoje’s visibility has steadily increased with articles being written in major publications ahead of his album release, and a major achievement was being named on BBC 1xtra Hot for 2015 Artiste list so he will be promoted across the BBC platform. Artistes were selected because As Mista Jams of BBC stated; “they’re producing the quality music needed to become big in the next 12 months. It’s a real cross section of really exciting new talent all currently on their A game.”
Protoje has been gaining momentum throughout the world, performing at quality venues to large audiences and will continue to tour consistently with his band The Indiggnation especially in Europe where several tours have already been booked as they continue to spread the music to the world.
Not long ago he was nominated for the MOBO award for the Best Reggae Act and we are more than happy to welcome him together with his band The Indiffnation to Prague’s Lucerna Music Bar!
