Lasana Bandele


Home: San Francisco, California USA   

Lasana Bandelé is prolific, eclectic Jamaican recording performing Reggae Artist who is deep in his Jamaican, African roots with a big voice and a powerful message. His album "Storitela" includes his biggest hit, "Living In Shacks" which he's mostly known for. His TV Special "The Storitela" was filmed and aired in Jamaica and he has performed on major festivals, such as Reggae SunSplash, Reggae Sumfest, City Stages. His persona easily translates when he performs live, whether at major festivals or in smaller, more intimate gatherings such as clubs and theaters.



When Lasana Bandelé performed at his first Reggae Sunsplash in 1990, he already had one hit single behind his name. The audience quickly came alive to the sounds of "Living In Shacks." The Storitela, who had already been making waves locally, was now reaching a larger audience. Writing in Jamaica's "Daily Gleaner," journalist Balford Henry says, "Lasana sees only the purpose in music...his songs are favorites of those who love what we call 'message music.' " And there are many messages in the songs which Bandele has penned over the years. Says Dermott Hussey, Music Journalist, Program Director at Siriusxm, "Lasana Bandelé is an original whose words and music succeeds beautifully because it is what exciting music does best, it surprises us with the delightful discovery of places where we have never been … " "...his mellow voice rhymes for every spoken work. A brother like him will come to join nations, as his lyrics and teaching are evident in his debut album," says Aleece Meikle of Reggae Report Magazine.
