Charly B France recording Reggae Artiste

The soundwaves just experienced a much-needed re-up with the entrée of border hopping, Reggae/Dancehall musicologist Charly B.

The Italian-born Francophile flexes a rootsy mix of patois stylus with complex French rap choruses and big-minded beats.

Reggae artist Charly B

His inspiration is as far-reaching as it is specific. Citing everything from classical composers to Jamaican heavyweights such as Anthony B, Capleton and Bounty Killa, Charly B borrows from the greats while inventing his own lyrically muscular stew.

His musical studies in Canada, long stays in Jamaica, and time spent living in France form the cultural triumvirate from which Charly B draws his artistic vision. He has performed alongside the dancehall legends Capleton, Kiprich, DeMarco and Anthony B, not to mention taking home first prize for best Singjay in Geneva’s 2002 Reggae competition, first prize for best Singjay of Switzerland in 2005, and more recently his track “My Sound” won the best song competition for the Reggae Europe 2009 contest.

Charly B is nothing if not a purveyor and mouthpiece of a uniquely fortified style. Not only is he a rated and recognized artist, he’s beholden to his muse, to a lifeblood passion that sees him forging a brave new sound.

L’arrivée du chanteur et musicien français Charly B, spécialiste en reggae dancehall et pour qui les frontières sont inexistantes, a amené un renouveau bien nécessaire sur les ondes. Ce francophone né en Italie mélange avec talent patois jamaïcain, couplets de rap français complexes, et des rhythmes géniaux.

Son inspiration est illimitée et débordante autant que spécifique. Citant toutes sortes d'influences, depuis les compositeurs classiques aux grosses pointures du reggae comme Anthony B, Capleton ou Bounty Killa, Charly B s'inspire des grands tout en inventant sa propre mixture lyrique musclée. Ses études musicales au Canada, ses longs séjours en Jamaïque, le temps passé en France forment le fondement de sa vision artistique.

Il s'est produit avec des légendes du dancehall tels que Capleton, Kiprich, De Marco et Anthony B, sans oublier de mentionner qu'il a remporté le premier prix du meilleur singjay de Genève en 2002, le premier prix du meilleur singjay de Suisse en 2005, et plus récemment son titre "My Sound" a gagné le prix de la meilleure chanson reggae au concours organisé par Reggae Europe en 2009.

Charly B n'est autre qu'un créateur et un porte-parole de la jeunesse actuelle, unique en son genre. Non seulement il est un artiste coté et reconnu, mais aussi un esclave de sa muse, de cette passion créatrice à l’origine d’un son nouveau.
