Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
IQULAH RASTAFARI. From the forest to the palace but the lion remains the same. As does the message in the music. IQulah's musical style carries a world music feel underpinned by a strong roots reggae foundation. Neatly orchestrated and enhanced by full strings, horns and percussion, played over solid reggae basslines, IQulah prefers to think of his music as The King's music, fit for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The clarity of IQulah's lyrics tell a story which holds the attention of the listener. No surprise, then, that his collection has been described as
"messages from the creator in the form of song".
The abundance of raw talent on IQulah's native island of Jamaica is evident by the range of reggae legends which have risen in the global music industry. But what separates IQulah from so many is his conviction. From an early age IQulah began to embrace the teachings of His Majesty, Emperor Haille Selassie 1st . As a youth he endured many of the hardships that rastas in Jamaica faced as
a result of their decision to throw away the traditional "scissors and comb". Nevertheless, IQulah's confidence in the King of Kings never waned. Having overcome significant odds, IQulah began to spread the message of unity through his music.
