In a recent series of firsts and historical moments, the Grammy winning Royal Family of Reggae, Morgan Heritage thrilled fans and music lovers from Asia to Africa on the Avrakedabra World Tour 2017.
Continuing the Avrakedabra World Tour 2017, on April 10th the siblings took the stage in Kenya and introduced Selah and Reggae Night from the anticipated album. The latter was a labor of love, as the Grammy winning band considers Kenya their home away from home. “Kenya has become one of our homes, so there are three places in the world we call home: Jamaica, America and now Kenya. We will bring our families here, in the very near future,” stated Peetah Morgan to a local newspaper.
Trodding on to deliver Reggae to the world, the touring veterans renowned for their endurance, longevity and outstanding showmanship, made their historical performance debut at the Lugolo Cricket Oval in Kampala, Uganda to a capacity crowd of 18,000+ people. The beautiful country boasts the reputation of Ugandans being number one reggae lovers in Africa, and the people came in droves to witness Reggae history. The Royal siblings delivered true on a promise made earlier by Gramps Morgan at a press briefing, “It is definitely the first time we are in Uganda but expect a memorable show.”
As Morgan Heritage continues on the Avrakedabra World tour, a third single from the forthcoming album has been released globally not including North America. Produced by Llamar “Riff Raff” Brown & Morgan Heritage, “We Are” featuring reggae stars Kabaka Pyramid and Dre Island has received rave reviews and was featured on New Music Friday France on Spotify upon its release day of April 14th. Both artists named as part of reggae’s resurgence and revitalization, all depictions used of late to describe reggae music and the new wave of young consciousness-raising, spiritually awaken artist evoking a golden era when the Reggae legends from the 70’s sang of oppression.
The Royal siblings who have worked with some of the world’s biggest names in music, explained the creation of “We Are”, “We got the track from the producer a year ago from Jamaica and when writing the song, the idea came up to feature Kabaka and Dre on the song. We reached out to them and they were both game to get it done. Their enthusiasm to work with us can be heard in the song. When putting on the final touches and mixing the song in Miami, we all felt this song would definitely connect with this “Intergalactic Generation” stated Mojo Morgan
