IZABA bio:

The Dub Poet and Original Rockers Izaba started out his career back in the Caribbean & Jamaica around the time where we call now Legends. In his early days he would be chillin on a regular basis with Bob Marley & Earl Chinna Smith like his bonifide brothers. His role was very important for the Reggae and Rasta movement back in those days especially shooting the Icon movie "ROCKERS"(sub-cameraman &director) & arrangements of the cast like Leroy "Horesemouth Wallace, Burning Spear, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, Dillinger and Jacob Miller. The next movie he shooted was with "Earl Zero" wich was called "Word Sound & Power" continuing on with his works with many various movies.

After succeeding with his movie series his artistic musical life would also kick off globally touring with "Third World" on their US tour . As he travelled the world, the climax turns around when Izaba brought the first Japanese Reggae band "Zoundsystem" to perform for the first time at the "Reggae Sunsplash" in Mobay(1984)performing as the main vocalist. From there famous Japanese artist's like Joe Yamanaka, Rankin Taxi, Nahki would continue their debut in the history of Jamaica back in the 1980's.

Years later the offer came to him to bring the worlds famous "Reggae Sunsplash" via "Japan Splash" bringing most of the Reggae artist to Japan from Jamaica. These festivals played a Major role to todays "Reggae in Japan" as well as other countries around Asia.

Due to the good response Reggae revival broke through w/ Real Jamaican culture ever since the Bob Marley & the Wailers Japan tour era in 1979.

Izaba remained to help build Reggae nice once again for over 25yrs. He released a couple of albums and singles in Japan and even published a book called "Tokyo Rastaman" that still sells to this day.

He now resides in the Netherlands with his beautiful Japanese family still continuing the link with Japan

& Caribbean culture starting Amsterdam's first Japanese Vegan Caribbean Restaurant "Terrazen" that is now rated as a 5star.

After many years from a blank period from the music industry CJ Joe that grew up from Japan/Jamaica Reggae scene has featured Izaba once again on the International platform as "Dub Poet" Artist in the Upcoming New World Wide Release Single "Jah Soul". This is definitely something to look forward to! Joyful Soul

One Love
