When Lasana Bandelé performed at his first Reggae Sunsplash in 1990, he already had one hit single behind his name. The audience quickly came alive to the sounds of
"Living In Shacks." The Storitela, who had already been making waves locally, was now reaching a larger audience.
Bandelé, who hails from the Parish of St. James in Jamaica, started writing poems and songs in 1972. A student of Catadupa All-Age School, he went on to spend three years at the Jamaica School of Music and one year at the Jamaica School of Drama.
Writing in Jamaica's "Daily Gleaner," journalist Balford Henry says, "Lasana sees only the purpose in music...his songs are favorites of those who love what we call 'message music.' " And there are many messages in the songs which Bandele has penned over the years.

"...his mellow voice rhymes for every spoken work. A brother like him will come to join nations, as his lyrics and teaching are evident in his debut album," says Aleece Meikle
of Reggae Report Magazine.
In person, this quiet, centered artist radiates warmth and the rhythm of his poetry.
His persona easily translates when he performs live, whether at major festivals or in smaller, more intimate gatherings such as clubs and theaters.
