German reggae icon Gentleman has sold out 3 shows of his European MTV Unplugged tour, taking place at the end of this year. Zurich, Wiesbaden and Cologne are sold out cities - but new dates for extra concerts in all 3 venues have been added to the tour schedule already. It certainly is a highlight that Gentleman returns to his own hometown Cologne as the final destination of this tour (ten days after the first show in Cologne) and also for the very last time with his MTV Unplugged program.
Nach über 20 Jahren Bühnenerfahrung mit weit über 1000 Shows weltweit ist die Zeit reif für einen kleinen musikalischen Überblick des Kölner Ausnahmekünstlers Gentleman. Auf „The Selection“ findet sich das Beste aus seinen vielfach mit Gold und Platin ausgezeichneten acht Studioalben. Als weiteres Highlight gibt es zwei neue Singles mit bekannten Feature-Acts: Dancehall-Superstar Sean Paul gibt sich bei „Ovaload“ die Ehre, Soul-Ikone Aloe Blacc unterstützt Gentleman auf „Imperfection“.
Die Deluxe Edition enthält eine Bonus CD, die eine facettenreiche Auswahl von Feature-Songs umfasst und Gentlemans musikalische Bandbreite verdeutlicht. Von seinem Durchbruch mit dem Hitsong „Tabula Rasa“ bis zum aktuellen Dauerbrenner „Ahnma“, von nationalen Stars wie u. a. Udo Lindenberg, Freundeskreis, Curse bis hin zu internationalen Acts wie Alborosie, Marcia Griffiths, Ky-Mani Marley oder Afu-Ra.
Mit 22 Tracks ist schon…

After the official cinema premiere in Berlin last tuesday (March 18th), the film Journey To Jah has now reached the cinemas in Germany and Switzerland.
The official film synopsis reads like this:
The two directors Noël Dernesch and Moritz Springer, as well as cameraman Marcus Winterbauer (“Rhythm is it“), spent seven years shadowing two unique reggae artists – the German GENTLEMAN and Italian ALBOROSIE – on their search for authenticity away from western consumerist societies in the land of Rastafari and reggae: JAMAICA.
The logline of Journey To Jah sums it up: The documentary film is a tale of the seeking and finding of a spiritual home in a foreign culture, one that follows people who are connected by one thing: music.
Watch the official cinema trailer below.
