Nigerian reggae star Majek Fashek stands apart from many reggae singers by reconnecting the genre with its African roots, from his insightful references to African politics to his subtle blending of traditional Nigerian rhythms with drum and bass. Rainmaker not only continues this pattern, but adds elements of bluesy rock - with brilliant covers of "Hotel California" and "Hey Joe" - which elevates this CD way beyond the typical roots reggae offering

Exclusive Prime pricing. I remember purchasing "Spirit of Love" back in the 90's and making a point to monitor everything that Fashek does. He is every bit an African musician, but has been heavily influenced by Bob Marley and brings an American edge to some of the numbers as well (perhaps the producing by Miami Steve Van Zandt on Spirit of Love rubbed off a bit). If you like westernized African music or a classic reggae album with a bit more variety than you are used to, then this is a great album.
