Iba Mahr generates buzz with breakout singles Burning, Great Is H.I.M and Will I Wait
Rastafarian firebrand Iba Mahr has been generating a lot of buzz in the reggae community with the breakout singles 'Burning', 'Great Is H.I.M' and his number one hit single 'Will I Wait'.
With this growing buzz, the demand for live performances from the beret-wearing singer has spiked in recent weeks with the artiste booked for a number of shows both locally and overseas.
He has been busy working on his debut album, however the inspirational singer has made time to continue to thrill fans with his distinctive lyrical stylings.
"Regardless of the long hours we spend inside the studio, as an artiste, live appearances play an integral part in our development not only just to entertain audiences but also to help one to become more seasoned in total craft of music," Iba Mahr said in a release .
Iba Mahr has been booked for a series of gigs in US and throughout the Caribbean. Born Rollin' Productions, which manages the artiste's musical affairs, has been in dialogue with overseas promoters to have the singer appearing more and more on the international stage.
Last month, he performed in Miami, Florida and Atlanta, Georgia alongside the Dubtonic Kru and the rave reviews from the local press show that reggae may have found one of its greatest exponents for the 21st century.
"It was a great experience and I always stretch my sincere thanks to the Dubtonic Kru for the initial experience in the States and look to another great experience in and out of the island throughout this summer," he said.
Last weekend, Iba Mahr performed at the Bog Walk High School's BBQ and also in his hometown of Linstead with music friends Sizzla, Warrior King, Turbulence, Singing Cologne, and many more at the Cheesefield Community Centre. He also showed up at a special dance held in Bog Walk in honour of legendary producer Clive Hunt where he performed alongside Mr. Peppa, Fantan Mojah, Lady G, Sophia Squire and Prophecy.
Recently, he brought his powerful songs to the Little Ochie Seafood Festival alongside a heavyweight line-up of Konshens, Lady G, Laden, Kiprich, TNez, Charley Blacks and Sophia Squire. He got one of the biggest forwards of the night at the Alligator Pond venue with Will I Wait which had the torches and lighters blazing the night sky.
"I was really pleased with the response and the forwards for Burning show that this song is soaking into the hearts and minds of the people," Iba Mahr said.
