There is an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica and industryexperts and observersagree that Protoje is playing an important role in what isbecoming known as the "Reggae Revival."Leading the militant band - The Indiggnation - this powerful songwriter and philosophicalthinker articulates the righteous anger of an emerging generation. Protoje reports forduty, re-establishing the standard for the decaying art of sociallyresponsible, mentallystimulating lyricism.After successfully releasing 2 albums,The SevenYear ItchandThe 8Year Affair, whichspawned "Rasta Love" ft. Ky-Mani Marley and "Kingston Be Wise"; which was featuredin the video game Grand Theft Auto; Protoje released his 3rd Studio Album titledANCIENT FUTUREon March 10.
