What happens when a natural born music whiz begins making beats from the cradle? He may start his own band as a teenager, pen consecutive hip-knocking tunes and have his life turn a sharp 180 midstream. Blame it on an elixir of fate, talent, technology and determination, but such is the genesis of Sicilian-born Alberto D’Ascola, a.k.a Alborosie. After forming his own band, The Reggae National Tickets in 1993, (signed to BMG Italia), performing on sold-out tours, selling over 200,000 units and solidifying his international reputation at memorable performances at Sunsplash in 1999 and Sumfest in 2000, the Italian artist with a Reggae pedigree decided to make a move to Jamaica. “I get tired and seh the world is big and my country small, so I decide to come to Jamaica,” he said. Having worked in Europe since the age of seventeen, Alborosie crossed over to the Reggae capital and didn’t look back.
