As we all know, Reggae music was created in the ghettos and has helped many people in their struggle & creating many opportunities for those who worked hard for it. Reggae developed its own alternative industry with the support of sound systems and gave opportunities to so many deejays, toaster and singers. In Brazil, with the rise of sound systems inspired by the UK and JA scene, Monkey Jhayam was one of the first artists to express his art and also build a solid and prominent career alongside many sound systems in his country. Out of São Mateus, Monkey broke barriers and has been collaborating with producers from all over the world with his uplifting Portuguese message.

Kendrick Andy’s Roots song “Great Old Men” lends itself to a new version by the top Brazilian Reggae artist, Monkey Jhayam. The 7" single features back to back versions, both in English (A) and Portuguese (B) of Great Old Men. Rhythm: Alien Dread. The tracks also feature Alvin Davis (Hornz), Asha B (Congas & Percussion) with Rhythm/Lead Guitar from Steven ‘Marley’ Wright.

Please note: If you bought a digital copy of the A side on Bandcamp last year, please contact us, with proof of purchase, and we will send you both of these tracks (digitally) for free, as the previous listing has been deleted (this was a mistake).
