Description

Time Fi Akshan on CD

Reggae music has historically been a genre that is widely popular in West Indian circles and within a particularly niche group of listeners. Often times it's success in the United States is attributed to artists such as Bob Marley, Burning Spear and The Wailers. However, in recent years with the growing prominence of Dancehall and artists like Shabba Ranks, Beenie Man, and more recently Sean Paul, Reggae music is advancing into mainstream popularity. It is the ideal time for Akshan to define his place in the ever changing musical landscape. This talented Sing-Jay has a melodic delivery and a barrage of original songs that will woo the hearts of his audiences. Akshan's musical influences range from such artists as Spragga Benz, Sizzla Kolonji and Barrington Levy, to the great Robert Marley, and a host of R&B performers. Akshan's eclectic style is 'creatively un-inhibited,' blending dancehall and roots reggae vibes with R&B to create a contemporary flavor. His unique sound is evidence that he is clearly in a league of his own. Akshan, born Nickia Navdia Palmer in the impoverished ghettos of rural St. Mary, Jamaica, has witnessed and been a part of many tragic and inspirational events. Reflected in his music are occurrences that have given him great understanding and insight to life and all it's possibilities. The name 'Akshan' (phonetic spelling of action in patois) stems from the personality and energetic stage presence he embodies. Akshan is a gifted artist that has such confidence and command of the stage that he can easily be categorized with any established performer. Combining elements of Reggae's past with a new vision and style, Akshan's debut album 'Time Fi Akshan, released in spring 2005, is ready to take the spotlight. With an array of songs that touch the heart, induce self-change and spark body movement, Akshan is destined to be an artist you will remember.
