The Making of Irie Souljah
Born in Barcelona, Irie Souljah was exposed to “black” music from four years old by his parents. In his teenage years, Irie Souljah’s interest in music resurged when he started going to parties where he was exposed to electronic music, often mixed with reggae and various Jamaican influences.
Captivated by videos of Bob Marley’s performances, Irie Souljah formed his first band Reggae Soldiers and started his roots reggae journey doing covers of Burning Spear and Culture.
Performing with his second band Mystic Soldiers, Irie Souljah felt a need to reach his full musical potential. The artiste moved to Jamaica after his first visit where he performed alongside Jamaica’s own such as Jessie Royal, and Chronixx.
