Aba Shanti-I - Earth Rocker Tshirt
More Medium & Large sizes coming soon....
Earth Rocker Sound of Jah Lightning and Thunder!
Official Tshirts from the legendary Aba Shanti-I Soundsystem / Falasha Recordings, straight from the source - love to Blood Shanti for hooking us up.
Aba Shanti-I, who started off as an MC for Jah Tubby's in the late 80's, and then went on to build his own, now world renowned sound in the early 90's, becoming known for his own brand of dubs and full pressure, heavyweight soundsystem operating and microphone style.
Along with his brother Blood Shanti / Shanti-Ites, with whom he also runs the veteran UK roots & dub imprint Falasha Recordings, Aba Shanti-I is one of the most respected names in the scene, and no doubt still at the top of his game, even decades after tireless promotion of Jah Music and dubwise in London and beyond.
Quick tip, go check the amazing falasha-recordings.co.uk website if you want a real relic of internet history, preserved in all it's early glory and full of great information from the past, including pictures and interviews (including a nice transcript from Dj Stryda's Sufferah's Choice pirate radio show back from years ago)
This is one of their Tshirt designs, featuring parts of the imagery used on their cult classic album art for the likes of The Wrath Of Jah Verse I, and Jah Lightning And Thunder Verse II from the 90's, fashioned here again on this Tshirt, along with the Earth Rocker slogan, and a nice print on the back of the Tee:
'Hear the Music - Feel The Vibes'.
Full respect and support to Aba Shanti-I, Shanti-Ites, Falasha -
true veterans and originators of the UK soundsystem and roots & culture scene.
