Ky-Mani Marley’s latest video, Hope Chant, premiered worldwide recently. Hope Chant features American country music artiste Big Kenny from the duo Big & Rich and debuts Ky-Mani’s son, KJ Marley, who delivers a good rap on the track.
Directed by Mykal Cushnie, the video was shot in early November on location in Trench Town and Tuff Gong Studios – two locations very important to the music of the Marleys.
Showcasing another side of Ky-Mani Marley, Hope Chant is the first single from Big Kenny Presents Electro Shine Record to be released in 2014.
Hope Chant is an uptempo song, fusing techno and reggae beats.
Electro Shine sees the fusion of Electronic Dance Music with classical instrumentation.
Ky-Mani is working on his new clothing line Konfrontation and focusing on his non-profit organisation LOAF (Love Over All Foundation), while relentlessly recording new and exciting material for his upcoming album Evolution of a Revolution, which represents a new sound. The new recordings will continue to highlight the myriad of Ky-Mani’s influences. His new works will prove to be a blend of genres that will touch the inner soul of each listener.
