TALK TO EACH OTHER!
After collaborating on various occasions the friendship between Ky-Mani Marley and Gentleman has manifested itself in the production of an entire album.
Conversations bursts with deep lyrics, rich musical arrangements and intimate insights into the communication between the two artists.
For Festiville, Munchy got to join the conversation and spoke to both protagonists about the project, its making and the stories behind it all.
We all have seen you doing works together previously, for example for Gentleman‘s MTV Unplugged album and shows. When did you guys actually meet for the first time and what were the vibes like?
Ky-Mani Marley: I think the first time me and Gentleman were backstage at a festival and it was just in the passing, but I was always a fan of his music. So as the opportunity presented itself to hail him up, I gave him a hail and made him know that I am a fan. That was a while back though, like seven, nine or ten years ago.
