Dubpoet Yasus Afari will not only release his new CD next month, but will also be treating fans to a special live performance.
Yasus is slated to perform at the Redbones Blues Café in New Kingston on October 5 alongside his Dub Vijan Band and other guest performers. At the show, Yasus Afari live in concert, he promises to have two segments, the first of which will feature hit songs from his extensive and intriguing catalogue, while the other will feature songs from the Public Secret album such as Wine Pon Paper, Poetree Caan Nyam, Woman To Love, and Let's Talk New York.
"The desire for social responsibility, public awareness informed and inspired the aptly titled Public Secret album, so the public can come prepared to be informed, empowered, and inspired at Yasus Afari Live in Concert with Dub Vijan Band," Yasus said in a release.
The Public Secret album was produced by Senya-Cum and Mandeville Music Group and was recorded, mixed, and mastered in Jamaica by Dub Vijan Band at the Mandeville-based Shelta Recording Studio and distributed worldwide by the Digital Distribution and Marketing Company, Fox Fuse, of Manhattan, New York, United States.
Physical distribution is also handled by Fox Fuse in the US. Negotiations are currently taking place with a European company interested in worldwide distribution of the physical CD, while a Japanese company will distribute the vinyl album in Asia. Other territorial distribution arrangements will be made in the coming months.
