Tiken Jah Fakoly

Tiken Jah Fakoly is a reggae artist from the Ivory Coast who, like so many reggae performers, writes music with a political message (why does that genre of music so easily lend itself to politicizing?). The apparent accuracy of his observations have increased his popularity and also earned him persona non grata status in Senegal. He is also unwelcome in his native country, which has forced him to live in Mali. Learn more about who he is and what he stands for on his website, hear a great song, below.
