ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jean Almatas (Pokito) was born in Haiti where he began his musical exploration with Konpa and Racine styles. At the early age of 16, he started working as a guitar player in bands such as Serpico; Do Re Mi Jazz, Shaky-Shaky, and the Konpa Express. Upon completing his education, he went on tour with Gemini Allstars as bass player across the French Caribbean, Europe, U.S. and Canada. At 21, he joined Magnum Band, one of the most prominent bands in Haiti at the time. In 1987 the band was invited for a USA tour and Pokito remained in New York City performing with Magnum for 2 years. He later moved to Miami where he currently resides as one of South Florida’s leading musicians, working as a highly sought after freelance artist blending styles and forms that span the Reggae World music scene as we know it. He has worked with such notable musicians as Richie Marley and Cedella Marley (Mother B). Local bands include: No Man Gin, Me and the Blue Dog, The Aristocrats, Raggamuffin Soldier, Ruff Tuff, Islanders etc. After touring to Japan with Richie Marley, he decided to put his band together in 2002 where he introduced his original world beat style called “Deep Roots”. Today he is a talented singer/songwriter bringing to us deeply rooted rhythms with globally encompassing lyrics to share, inspire, and expand what we know as world music.

I can't express the Joy I felt I listen to your work. It took me back to our early days when you were you and I oh well we want go there. You are still the only true Bass Guitarist I have known. God Blessing to you and yours.....All is well Munirah is signing , writing and has her own band. Solomon is also writing and producing Rap. Your influnce will be with them forever....Again God Bless

This album will shake your soul to the core. Don't be decieved by the cover, yo
Anyone I know who has had the good fortune of finding this album has kept it in their player ever since! I recomend #'s 5, 2, 1 and 6 and... ok all of them! The album itself is just really solid. You know the music is good when it gets happily stuck in your head after the first time you hear it.
