Product Notes

Jean Almatas (Pokito) was born in Haiti where he began his musical exploration with Konpa and Racine styles. At the early age of 16, he started working as a guitar player in bands such as Serpico; Do Re Mi Jazz, Shaky-Shaky, and the Konpa Express. Upon completing his education, he went on tour with Gemini Allstars as bass player across the French Caribbean, Europe, U.S. and Canada. At 21, he joined Magnum Band, one of the most prominent bands in Haiti at the time. In 1987 the band was invited for a USA tour and Pokito remained in New York City performing with Magnum for 2 years. He later moved to Miami where he currently resides as one of South Florida's leading musicians, working as a highly sought after freelance artist blending styles and forms that span the Reggae World music scene as we know it. He has worked with such notable musicians as Richie Marley and Cedella Marley (Mother B). Local bands include: No Man Gin, Me and the Blue Dog, The Aristocrats, Raggamuffin Soldier, Ruff Tuff, Islanders etc. After touring to Japan with Richie Marley, he decided to put his band together in 2002 where he introduced his original world beat style called "Deep Roots". Today he is a talented singer/songwriter bringing to us deeply rooted rhythms with globally encompassing lyrics to share, inspire, and expand what we know as world music.
