Born Chester Bailey July 7, 1960 in Mt. Salem Montego Bay JA, King Banga is directly from the roots of Jamaican culture. An elder of Nyabinghi Order Banga is new to recording but not to Reggae music.
King Banga has recently compiled a collection of songs based on his experience as a ghetto youth moving abroad throughout Babylon. His music reflects the struggles many Caribbean experience in an attempt to survive in a system of great opportunity and challenges.
King Banga's debut album Deh Pon Top is scheduled for release in the spring of 2018 and is sure to please anyone who loves the music of Jamaica!
Recorded in Kingston Jamaica, Wisconsin and Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, the album features many veterans of Reggae such as guitarists Bo Pee and Ron Butler, percussionist Billy Congo, Keyboardists Tchaka Frazier and Bowie and Channel One engineer Souljie.
