    Music maestro, Gyedu Blay Ambolley, has urged Ghanaian Dancehall and Reggae artistes to blend their songs with some aspects of the country’s culture.

    The ace saxophonist, composer and rapper, expressed worry over how most of the young musicians today adopt beats and rhythms created by Jamaican artistes and make the songs their own.

    “The musicians who are in that line of music take more of their beats from Jamaican songs and add their voices to them. I think we need to have an identity. If our brothers from Jamaica, who have created that form of music, come down here and we are doing the same thing like them, it doesn’t really sit down with me. We need to add some part of our cultural aspect to the style that we use in the Reggae and Dancehall music,” the veteran musician charged.

    Mr. Ambolley’s song, ‘It doesn’t Matter,’ was nominated as the Reggae Song of the Year at this year’s BASS Awards.

    The event is designed to show gratitude to Reggae and Dancehall artistes, serve as an annual gathering of lovers of Reggae and Dancehall music and generally present high class entertainment to the public.

    The BASS Awards are jointly organized by Rackus Productions, Bull Haus Entertainment and Solid Multimedia. This year’s event, under the theme, ‘Turn It Up,’ is slated for August 30.
