A 30 year celebration of Aba Shanti-i.
Aba has been playing his sound, and the music created by his brother Blood Shanti on that sound, in small and large halls throughout this country and in the process has developed a following covering the widest spectrum of Jah’s humanity.
People come to an Aba Shanti-i session to discard their worries, to lose themselves in the music – and by doing so cast off the mental shackles.
The vibe that Aba generates has brought him to the attention of the media and has been the subject of three television programmes: the German ‘Deep in Dub’, the French ‘Aba at Carnival’ and Big Issue’s ‘Urban Rites’. But in the UK, Aba Shanti-i is most loved for his annual sound systems at Notting Hill Carnival where he has been resident since 1993.
Having missed the last two years of Carnival due to the fallout of the pandemic, we couldn’t be more grateful to welcome Aba and his incredible, long-renowned sound system back to EartH’s subterranean hall in a night that’s bound to be full of positive vibes and good times.
