Kunta's Bio

With a classic deejay style similar to old-school deejays like Macka B and Brigadier Jerry comes Kunta David; the hottest new name in gospel dancehall. David Swaby was born on October 7th, in Kingston Jamaica, and then raised in the lush green hills of St. Ann (the birthplace of Bob Marley). He is now residing in Miami, Florida and has opted for a new name; "Kunta David". When most people hear his new moniker, the first thing that comes to mind is the popular character in "Roots", the 1977 made for TV saga. This series was based on a true story, and believe it or not, the original Kunta Kinte was also born on October 7th, (1767).

Kunta is a rapidly evolving gospel reggae artist who has been performing live locally and internationally in churches and festivals sharing the stage with top artists and ministers. He has been described as a "Heartical, cultural gospel dancehall artist that brings the crowd to their feet, keeps them dancing and praising god with his sharp cutting gospel lyrics." With a freshman release on his own label (Special Effects Records), Kunta is sure to garner the attention of gospel reggae fans worldwide.

He kicks off his debut solo project with an almost Dub Poetry">dub poetry style on "The Coming" and then follows with a modern dancehall rendition of the Sunday school classic "Somebody Wrong," so put your hand in the air and praise Him! After this is the pocomania influenced "Give Thanks", and the upbeat "The Truth Hurts" that quotes the Christian classic; "Stand up and tell me if you love the Almighty!" In fact, it seems like almost every song on this album alludes to at least one traditional Caribbean church hymn. Other noteworthy tracks include the tribal stomping "People Dying in the Jungle", the bouncy "Hold the Faith", and the raggamuffin hip hop "New World Order".
