 Ras Iba hails from St. Croix U.S.Virgin Islands, and began his musical career in 2001. That year Ras Iba recorded several songs with Bambú Station that were selected for their award-winning compilation "Talkin' Roots - Volume I". Ras Iba's song "Chant" was selected as the lead track and helped usher in a globally recognized talent pool of artists from the Virgin Islands. Ras Iba's song was heavily rotated throughout the United States and Caribbean helping to solidify "Talkin' Roots I" as a modern classic. Mt. Nebo Records launched “Jah Lion (Children of the Nile),” Ras Iba's debut album on July 1, 2003 which has generated outstanding reviews and critical acclaim from industry experts, radio personalities and reggae fans alike. Since the release of his first album, Ras Iba has traveled all over the world spreading his message of righteous living, morality, world peace and unity.
