Thompson Sound proudly present to you YAMI BOLO “HEALING” an amazing set roots reggae and rub-a-dub music. The albums showcases the great voice of one of the best Jamaican singers and songwriters of all times, over some sharp and stunning riddims recorded and produced during the early 80´s at Channel One Studio by the ace reggae producer and singer Linval Thompson, Kingston, Jamaica.
Yami Bolo biography: Yami Bolo grew up in postal zone 13 of Kingston. His first professional job and exposure was with Sugar Minott´s Youth Promotion Crew. His first singles were released in 1986, and he had his greatest success working with Augustus Pablo in the late 1980s and early 1990s, on singles such as “Struggle in Babylon”. In 1994, Bolo earned international acclaim from his collaboration with Japanese reggae performer, Kazafumi Mizayawa (Miya). Their Love Is Dangerous album sold 500,000 units in Japan. In addition, the duo’s “Miya-Yami Project” earned the Japanese “Best Music Video ’94” title.
He contributed to Damian Marley 2001 Grammy Award winning album Halfway Tree (2002 Best Reggae Album).
Bolo has collaborated with some of reggae’s most prominent artists and producers; including Linval Thompson, Damian Marley, Tenor Saw, Sugar Minota, Capleton, Tapper Zukie, Sly & Robbie, and King Jammy´s Studios. His success as a reggae artist has allowed him to record many songs professing the Rastafarian faith as taught by the Ethiopian Othodox Church throughout his three decades in the reggae industry. Yami Bolo has been performing Rastafarian works since the mid-1980s touring with many different reggae groups including Augustus Pablo’s Rockers crew.
His Rastafarian inspired music is listened to around the world, particularly in reggae niche markets like Japan, Australia, Britain, France, USA and Germany. As an ambassador for reggae, Yami Bolo conducted Rastafari cultural studies at world-renowned universities, like SUNY in New York State and MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In addition, Yami Bolo has supported the city of New Orleans and its surrounding areas by volunteering his musical talent at live performances in Louisiana in the Summer of 2009.
In 2014 he was reportedly recording a new album, to be called The Singer.
Now in 2020 we present to you this amazing set of songs produced by legendary producer Linval Thompson. Roots reggae music at its best!
