OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR RAS SPARROW’S “LION IN A CAGE”.
Venezuelan musician, singer and producer Ras Sparrow (Eloy Carrero), an artist who holds as his mission to follow the traditional sounds and message of Roots Reggae was from an early age involved with music, but it was not until the 1990s that Roots Reggae came into his life, becoming his musical style following a deep spiritual awakening.
In 2003 he began to perform live on the island of Hawai’i at which time he became known as Ras Sparrow, a name that was given to him by the Rastafari community of the island.
During this time, he formed his first reggae band, Ras Sparrow and Daily Bread, with whom he performed live until 2008. That same year he released his first production “Sovereign People”, an EP of seven songs recorded and produced in his own Studio One Love, strictly using solar energy. This album contains tracks such as “Tree of Life”, “Be a Warrior”, “Sovereign People” and “Good Seed” (a song which became #1 on Hawaiian FM radios). From this song the duo Ras Sparrow and Queen Sparrow emerged (2008-2013) . They recorded songs such as “I Endure” (w/ Hawaiian Roots Band), “First Light” and “Zion Town”.
Ras Sparrow has had the honor and privilege to share the stage with reggae greats such as Israel Vibrations, Alpha Blondy, Midnite, Groundation, Kymani Marley, Anthony B, Bamboo Station, Jarett Winston, Dezarie, among others.
In late 2014, Ras Sparrow released his second EP entitled “DigITAL 12″ Dub Mixes”, an album with four songs, each with its respective Dub version making it a total of eight tracks, recorded and produced using strictly an iPhone 4S. This EP contains songs such as “El Afortunado” and “The Cradle”.
In July 2015, while touring Brazil, Ras launches the single entitled “Irie Island”, recorded with Judahland Band in Caracas, Venezuela and with debut participation of La Makeda on female vocals. A second single was recorded and released with Judahland in 2016, “Lion In A Cage”, a deep, slow, roots reggae. And now there’s also an official video of that song available.
