General Tchefary is the descendant of the famous "Almamy Samory Toure" formidable opponent in the fight against French colonization in sub-Saharan Africa.
He grew up with his mother, since his father died 3 months after his birth. Becoming a musician, kept him out of trouble.
Transplanted to the desert Southwest from Abidjan, Ivory Coast, International African Roots Reggae artist General Tchefary spreads a message that traverses International borders and all aspects of humanity.
This international recording artist and performer since 1998, performs reggae music rooted in African traditions. "Music sends a message in every song," he says.
Our General sings in five languages which he mixes his own traditional African melodies and Jamaican reggae to create " African Roots Reggae." He counts as his influences, artists such as Bob Marley, Alpha Blondy, Burning Spear, Tiken Jah Fakoly, and Lucky Dube.
Tchefary was honored for the nomination of the 225 Reggae Music Awards 2018 in the category of Best Artist of the Diaspora.
He released his 3rd album, "Jah is Love" published on November 9th, 2019 which travels between recognition in God, love of a mother, love of humanity, immigration/anti-colonialism, and socio-politics.
