A Reggae Encounter Waiting 60 Years To Fulfil..
From the first generation of Chinese migrants crossing the globe for Jamaica, Leslie Kong of Beverley Records has planted a deep seed in Reggae music history. From Bob Marley’s first studio session to Toots & Maytals, Jimmy Cliff and many more..
I Kong, a revered elder and highly respected Reggae artiste. Along with his son, Skunga Kong, a highly acclaimed producer distinguished as “Young Legend” by pioneers, they are heirs to Leslie Kong’s legacy. With Heavy HK and UmmU, they stepped foot into China to share this unique heritage and thus, fulfilling a cycle of mankind’s journey.
Through a chemistry exploding week with JahWahZoo, Chengdu’s finest Reggae band, the combination was a clear and dynamic hit!
Catapulting us to this point. Creating a historical Reggae album with legendary Reggae icon I Kong, highly acclaimed young prodigy producer Skunga Kong and fans’ favourite Reggae band JahWahZoo. A combination like none other, set in destiny!
As a Teacher figure, I Kong will return to spend time in China with JahWahZoo to make an album together. Passing on the knowledge through music, as prophesied in his lyrics “Pass It On”, to the people of his father’s homeland. This album will be produced by Skunga Kong, 3rd generation Chinese Jamaican musical pride, continuing Beverley’s Records’ legacy.
Music is about bringing people together. In Reggae, the message of ‘Unity’ is an overstanding. Coming from one blood, we are all Brothers and Sisters dispersed across this planet over time. As Bob Marley sings, “Movements of Jah People”. From one land to another.. I Kong and his story is a testament to this.
