Amlak's in touch

Amlak Tafari and author in Birmingham Sept 2005
It's always a pleasure to hear from my musical friends around the globe and one of the best bass guitar players in world reggae music, Amlak Tafari, dropped me a note yesterday. Though based in Birmingham, UK, Amlak is almost constantly on the road gigging with Steel Pulse, they are in the USA next week after finishing a few dates in Europe, but also manages to spend his spare time mentoring and has done a number of music workshops and motivational engagements in a variety of education institutions and correctional facilities around the world. He asked me if I had any ideas for doing projects in Cambodia or the surrounding region. If anyone has a plan, let me know. Amlak is well-known in the reggae world for compering/hosting shows and festivals in addition to his undoubted talents as a bass player, having joined Steel Pulse in 2005 after experience with Pato Banton, Wailing Souls, Musical Youth, Culture and Luciano.

He is indeed a great guy, has time for everyone and is one of the best am-BASS-adors that reggae music could ever have. I'll never forget him singing happy birthday to me Portuguese! Funny guy.
