A Rahman Revelation

A Rahman Revelation



This is A Rahman Revelation. He is a musician from Gambia. The reggae star has played in a number of bands since the early 1970s. He has travelled all over the world with his music. Today he is based in France. This summer he has played at a few events in Sweden, including Öland Roots. I saw him with Simon Peter and the Medicine Men back in August in the park in Tungelsta. I met Rahman in Västerhaninge a while back, where he and a few band members have been staying at Birdman's place. He told me about two upcoming gigs with his band Sagaj Roots in Linköping and Norrköping. Since I took this portrait I have met Rahman again when he was playing a few songs together Birdman and a female musician.

Great portrait and interesting story Steffe, I bet he has a mass of dreadlocks tucked away neatly under that beanie.
