San Diego, California
“I give thanks everyday for my upbringing,” Kings Schascha states with a humble tone. King Schascha, born in Morvant Laventille, Trinidad and Tabago, was raised by his mother Rosita who gave him the opportunity to study music at one of the best music Academies in St. Augustine. Although his life has led him down many paths, his roots eventually carried him back to his greatest passion, music.
Now residing in San Diego, where the almighty spirit of Reggae Culture is transpiring every day, King Schascha brings with him a fusion of dancehall, reggae, soul, country, jazz, and calypso. “I’ve got mad respect for my band members’ talent, dedication, and love of music” (King Schascha). Playing the riddims for King Schascha is Irusalem, an 8-member band and chosen family to King Schascha. Zena on keyboards, Kizzy & Shoshanna as back up vocalists, Lyndon on the drums, Niko on rhythm guitar, Ryan on bass and Johnny Gringo on lead guitar.
Entertaining the crowd with his powerful, fiery stage presence, King Schascha commands the stage from the very moment he steps on until Irusalem plays their final note. The legendary Black Uhuru gave great praises on his performances by saying, “King Schascha should be on stage at any venue or festival.” No other up and coming artist puts on a show like King Schascha.
Inspired by his family and upbringing, many of King Schascha’s lyrics tell of love, life, family and a never-ending sight of a vision for harmony. His lyrical genius, coupled with the pure universal beats of reggae music creates magic to your soul. It is no wonder crowds gather for King Schaschas’ shows to experience an abundance of energy, vibrations of the most high, and celebration of life. “Music is really here to entertain the mind, the body and the soul”(King Schascha).
