Dubcentral Presents Bongo Chilli / Dan Man & Universal HiFi Sound System at The Everyone Centre
This gig is a benefit for The Musical Works, a not-for-profit Sheffield based company which works with musicians, dancers and singers from all over the world to provide musical activities for young people
Born Clayton Brown in the Parish of Trelawny, Bongo Chilli has lost none of the talent first realized in Jamaica and now prolific in the UK. Before moving to the UK in 1995, he had already performed alongside artists such as Bounty Killer, Nitty Kutchie and General Trees. Now in the UK, he has worked with The Rootsman, YT, Nat Clarxon, Dan Man, Great African, Blaze Billions, Harlem Gem, D-bo General, Underground Roots, Celt Islam and the legendary Daddy Freddy; the latter with whom he has performed on stage in the UK, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and Slovenia. Bongo Chilli’s first official international tour came in March 2006, as a package, which included the “Vanguard of Dub” Iraiton Steppas , Daddy Freddy and Murry Man.
He believes in writing positive sensible lyrics that contains no profanity and has worked in schools to help children increase their growing vocabularies in various subjects such as English, Mathematics and Mental Ability. Working with other artists and producers from different musical backgrounds has made his vibrant and energetic stage performances ever more versatile. He has honed the ability to enhance any instrumental with his conscious and often humorous style, also seen recently collaborating with Sheffield legends BISON.
