CarlI&I - Raízes Tupiniquins
Reggae music has been adopted by nearly every country across the globe. The true roots music of Jamaica has continued to grow as a cultural lifestyle strongly linked to Rastafari as the preferred medium of consciousness. The history of international reggae is told through the story of many non-Jamaican artists. CarlI&I has his own story to tell.
CarlI&I, a rising Brazilian reggae artist was born in 1982, as Carlyle de Queiroz S. Filho, in Goiânia,Goiás, Brazil. As all brazilian children he wanted be a football player,but his mother remembers him singing in so many family parties. CarlI&I received his first guitar at age 17, from a friend that didn´t want it anymore, leading to a well defined musical beginning. While growing up, he remembers listening to black music, brazilian music, resulting in his introduction to Bob Marley and the Wailers. At 19, Carl&I began attending parties where friends played a mix of reggae,rap and rock, furthering his love for roots reggae music.
In 1999, CarlI&I started the band, “Profunda Raiz” performing covers by Bob Marley, “Ponto de Equilibrio”, “Tribo de Jah” and so many reggae brazilians artirts . A few years later, after changing the name to” Cerrado Manjah”, the band released some many concerts around your hometown.’
In 2004 , CarlI&I moved to London, England. After been with some Africans and Jamaicans rastafarians, started your knowledge in the rastafari culture and letting your dreadlocks grow. As artist still searching for reggae excellence, experienced a feeling of emptiness and frustration.
