Once again Swiss label, Soul of Anbessa, has struck gold! Their latest release featuring Prince Alla, Maurice Roberts, Little Roy and an amazing line-up of musicians is yet another shining example of what makes this label so special.

To create the 'Tarab' riddim Soul of Anbessa gathered an all-star line-up of Jamaican musicians including Derrick Stewart (Conscious Minds), Boris Gardiner (The Crystalites, The Upsetters), Dwight Pinkey (Zap Pow, Roots Radics) and Robbie Lyn (Sound Dimension, The Upsetters). Together these seasoned musicians crafted a deep roots riddim imbued with soul and the true sound of Jamaican roots reggae.

Once again Swiss label, Soul of Anbessa, has struck gold! Their latest release featuring Prince Alla, Maurice Roberts, Little Roy and an amazing line-up of musicians is yet anothing shining example of what makes this label so special.

To create the 'Tarab' riddim Soul of Anbessa gathered an all-star line-up of Jamaican musicians including Derrick Stewart (Conscious Minds), Boris Gardiner (The Crystalites, The Upsetters), Dwight Pinkey (Zap Pow, Roots Radics) and Robbie Lyn (Sound Dimension, The Upsetters). Together these seasoned musicians crafted a deep roots riddim imbued with soul and the true sound of Jamaican roots reggae.

Each of the vocal cuts brings out a different aspect of the riddim, starting with Prince Alla's ballad 'In The Meadow'. With the addition of a trumpet & trombone to the riddim, Prince Alla laments the capture of his people long ago and the resulting problems that ensued. The late great Maurice Roberts (Gaylads) delivers a heart-warming ode to Jah for the gift of life and all the beauty we have to experience within it. This exceptional track is Maurice's only solo song in his outstanding musical career. Along with the emotion Maurice himself has poured into 'Thank You Jah' the track also features a beautiful flute accompaniment. Last and certainly not least, Little Roy brings a rockers sentiment to the riddim with 'Misleading', a song epitomized by his line "you want to **** on my head and say the rain is falling". For Roy's version he is joined by a flugenhorn & clarinet, a combination of instruments not often found in reggae but that clearly works!

Along with the 3 vocal cuts the record also features a dub of Prince Alla's "In The Meadow". Mixing of the tracks along with the 1 dub version was carried out by Darren Jamtone & Basque Dub Foundation.
