About Jimmy Jah
Jimi Jah is a Portuguese artist heavily influenced by the musical culture of Jamaica. The first original works appeared in 2011 when an uncontrollable force took over his creativity, and he gave in to the need of using the music to project and share his inner world.
With the Jamaican fire and the Portuguese melancholy, Jimi projects a wide range of feelings in his tracks, always seeking a strong and coherent balance between sound and content.
Amongst some highlights of his path are the concert in the main stage of Musa Cascais 2014 Festival and his award victories in both editions of Mash Dem Up Clash Singer.
In 2016, he traveled through Brazil where he discovered, explored and absorbed intrinsically Afro-Brazilian music, which inevitably influenced his own musical expression in a contagious way.
For 2018, Jimi Jah promises to launch several new themes in partnership with various Portuguese producers, such as Sali Rosário, Asher Guardian, Da Lion, KnD, Miguel Campos, Mystic Fyah, among others. A mystical musical journey between various contrasting styles, from New Roots to Digital Dub, through Dancehall and Afrobeat, which Jimi will share with the world, as he is ready to unlock the box where he has kept at least a dozen of originals all to himself.
