Alborosie Dancehall and Reggae Music singer

Alborosie is a reggae and dancehall singer who was born in Marsala, Sicily in Italy (1977). This talented singer-songwriter who also plays instruments such as vocals, guitar, bass drums and the Piano is now residing in Jamaica, the homeland of dancehall and reggae music.

His musical career started when he joined an Italian reggae band call "Reggae National Ticket" in 1993, he was just 15 year old.

Reggae Singer Alborosie

In 2001 he decided to move to Jamaica so that he could be closer to the reggae music and the Rastafarian culture. His first job in Jamaica was as a sound engineer and producer. He also started his own record label "Forward Recordings".

He is well known for hits such as Rastafari Anthem, Kingston Town, Call up Jah, Steppin Out, No cocaine and Blue Movie Boo.

He got his stage name from a name he was given in the early years after moving to Jamaica. "Borosie was what they used to call me. Let me put it like this. My early experience in Jamaica was… not nice. Borosie was a name they used to call me and it have a negative meaning. So I said “I'm gonna use this name and mash up the place turn a negative into a positive thing!". Basically my name is Albert so I add "Al" – Al-borosie. But I’m not gonna tell you what borosie mean!"

His hits include "Rastafari Anthem", "Kingston Town", and "Call Up Jah".

He recently started his own record label, Forward Recordings. He has given concerts all round the world, including most of Europe and Jamaica.

In 2011, he became the first white artist to win the M.O.B.O. (Music of Black Origin) Awards in the Best Reggae Act category.

In 2014, Greensleeves Records released Specialist Presents Alborosie & Friends, a collection of collaborations with other artists. The album entered the Billboard Top Reggae Albums chart at number 7. He collaborated with King Jammy on a dub album, Reality of Dub, which is set for release in early 2015.

In May 2016 his album Freedom & Fyah was released by VP records.
