About this item

Daweh Congo has propelled himself to the forefront of conscious roots reggae with this album "Human Rights & Justice" originally released in 2000.

"Human Rights & Justice" personifies the essence of Jah today. Daweh's voice and his righteous livications for Rastafari and Marcus Garvey often result in him being compared to the legendary Burning Spear.

On "Human Rights & Justice", Daweh exalts his spirituality with such incantations as "Jah Is My Shepherd", "Wilderness", "Drums" and "Jah Mercy Seat". His cries for a better world can be heard on "One World", "Earth Running" and the title track. Daweh Congo recruited the formidable talents of Roots Radics, Jamaica’s premier in house studio band to lay the riddims that can be heard throughout this album. The heavy drum and bass lines from Style Scott and Flabba Holt, along with Daweh Congo’s mesmerizing voice have catapulted "Human Rights and Justice" to the number one position on IREGGAE.COM’s top ten albums for the month of May 2000.

Born Rohan Graham in 1969, Daweh's father cut sides for Joe Gibbs and Lee Perry. Daweh recorded his first song "Breadwinner" for Alton Ellis. In 1995, he teamed up with Ocho Rios based producer and managing director Barry O'Hare, to record his first hit singles "Study Garvey" and "Coconut Chalice".

Daweh Congo continues his spiritually charged and uplifting lyrics on "Human Rights & Justice". Produced by Gaylard Bravo, this album features 45 minutes of pure conscious reasonings that are sure to uplift the hearts and souls of roots music lovers all over the world.
