Jamaican reggae singer and songwriter Winston McAnuff, also known as “Electric Dread”, got worldwide recognition after his album was released in Europe. He was a member of the legendary band Inner Circle and rap and rock group Java, with whom he recorded the album Paris Rockin which stormed Europe in 2006.
Winston McAnuff’s partnership with the French producer and accordionist Fixi paved the way for a new style in which sounds and rhythms blend differently. Lively and tailored to the dance floor, tracks include an eclectic musical mixture: reggae and rock-musette are the main styles and also blues, soul, Afrobeat, the maloya from the Reunion Islands and Latin music. The duo, that has been thrilling audiences around the world, was internationally acclaimed with the recent release of the album A New Day that will be presented in Brazil at MIMO Festival.
