Alpha Blondy
Alpha Blondy Alpha Blondy was inspired by Jamaica, as he generated a decidedly Marley-esque reggae style skewed by the sinuous modalities of West African Sahel. Like Marley, Blondy sang about struggle, revolution, peace, love and corruption but with an uncanny catchy melodicism. No wonder he became the first truly global reggae star after Marley. Now, with the release of Merci, Alpha Blondy celebrates twenty years as a recording artist with one of the strongest albums of his career.
