I Anbassa

Have you ever been to a concert where the band did not exhibit the slightest amount of anxiety while on stage, like they were born to perform? Well on July 27 at Sullivan Hall in NYC, I Anbassa, a band that makes wordly reggae music, took over the stage and performed like it was second nature. They played each song as if music was the fuel that literally kept them alive, just like eating and sleeping are needed to survive. It is hard not to focus on I Anbassa while they perform on stage, which is similar to watching a magician spit out incantations to make a bunny appear out of a top hat or make something disappear. After awhile, you will begin singing and dancing along with them. Oh, the dancing! How wonderful! Ras N'Gosi, the lead singer and guitarist, is light on his feet and danced with so much soul, like if he was touched by the holy ghost. The two beautiful singers Empress Katrese and Empress Katie danced in rhythm, as if to keep the whole band on beat. I Anbassa creates music that promotes positive change and shows how important love is, as in "Gade Yon La Vi" and "Bezu Fehker," both from their debut EP Bezu Fehker. A song that really catches my attention is "No GMO," in which Ras N'Gosi profoundly explains the meaning of the song in the video interview below. The band's next NYC gig will be on August 25th at Club Groove. I recommend you go and experience the great power of I Anbassa.
