Kabaka Pyramid Inna Cali

 New reggae phenom Kabaka Pyramid passed through the San Francisco Bay Area this week doing a series of sound system track shows that proved why he's such an in-demand roots revival artist now.

In 2011 Kingston-based Kabaka burst on the scene with the Rebel Music album, which he offered for free via Bandcamp. The recording was more than enough to get him noticed.

These days he's turned up on a number of high profile singles and riddims, including Green Lion Crew's new Rough Road riddim set,  Silly Walks' Honey Pot Riddim, and Royal Order Music's hit "Selassie I Soldiers."  Check the clips from his recent shows below.
