The name 'Aba Shanti-I' is not just the name of the sound system, but also the name of the person that is playing the sound... Over the last 20years Aba has been playing his sound & the music created by his brother "Blood Shanti" in small and large halls throughout England. In the process he has developed a following covering the widest spectrum of Jah's humanity... Black / White / Asian / Young / The Not So Young / Rastafarian's / Bald heads / Dread... All races.... All creeds... All genders... We don't segregate but in turn we integrate... They come because an 'Aba Shanti-I' session is synonymous with a vibe, but most of all Feeling. No one at an Aba session is made to feel strange. It is not about what you look like, it's about who you are and what is in your heart!... People come to discard their worries and to lose themselves in the music and by doing so cast off the mental shackles from their mind and the yolk from around their shoulders, find themselves, be at peace and be free... The vibe that Aba generates has brought him to the attention of the media on a worldwide basis and he has been the subject of numerous articles in domestic and foreign magazines... In the last 3 years (Aba Shanti-I & Falasha recordings) have been the subject of 3 television programmes. 1 German 'Deep in Dub', 1 French 'Aba at Carnival' and 1 domestic 'Urban Rites' Big Issue Film Unit Series... "Everywhere Aba has played he has been greeted by enthusiastic patrons who have been so happy to be 'experiencing the fullness' of 'Aba Shanti-I' and 'The Shanti-Ites' live and direct & in their own backyard..."
