DAWEH CONGO has propelled himself
to the forefront of conscious heartical roots reggae with his newest album Human
Rights & Justice. Released by Roots and Culture Records earlier this year, Human
Rights & Justice personifies the essence of JAH music today. Daweh's
voice and his righteous livications for Rastafari and Marcus Garvey often result in his
being compared to 1999 Grammy winner Burning Spear.
Rights & Justice, Daweh exalts his spirituality with such
incantations as "Jah Is My Shepherd", "Wilderness",
"Drums" and "Jah Mercy Seat". His
cries for a better world can be heard on "One World", "Earth
Running" and the title track. Daweh Congo recruited the
formidable talents of "Roots Radics", Jamaicas premier
back-up band to lay the rhythms that can be heard throughout this album. The heavy drum
and baselines from Style Scott and Flabba Holt, along with Daweh Congos
mesmerizing voice have catapulted Human Rights and Justice to the number
one position on IREGGAE.COMs top ten albums for the month of May.
Daweh's debut CD "Militancy"
was released on RUNNetherland Records in 1998. Produced by Barry O'Hare, this release
features conscious itations such as "Study Garvey", "Coconut
Chalice", "No Peace" and "Militancy".
Born "Rohan Graham" in 1969, Daweh's father cut sides for Joe
Gibbs and Lee Perry. Daweh recorded his first song "Breadwinner"
for Alton Ellis. In 1995, he teamed up with Ocho Rios based producer and managing director
Barry O'Hare, to record his first hit singles "Study Garvey"
and "Coconut Chalice". The words and thoughts of Marcus Garvey
are featured prominently on "Militancy", an album that strikes
a chord amongst rastafarians and reggae enthusiasts.
Daweh Congo continues his spiritually charged and
uplifting lyrics on Human Rights & Justice. Produced by Gayland Bravo
and distributed in the US by Ernie B's, this album features 45 minutes of pure conscious
reasonings that are sure to uplift the hearts and souls of roots music lovers all over the
Perhaps the greatest compliment I have heard regarding this album to
date came from Positive Massive Sound recording artist "Rocker-T"
who stated "I could play this entire album for my bredren, and most of them would not
believe me when I told them that it was not Burning Spear."
Daweh is preparing to embark on a tour of the
Unites States in support of his incredible new release. Dont miss the opportunity to
see Daweh Congo when he comes to your town, and please do your part to
secure Human Rights & Justice for all mankind.
