Using the stage name Lutan Fyah, sometimes credited as Lute and Fyah, he started his musical career in 1999. Lutan’s initial influence of African consciousness was instilled by his grandfather Tamba, and his spiritual identity is rooted in Rastafar-I – Bobo Ashanti.
Lutan and his band have been busy spreading their message of love in diverse places and has built quite a name for himself in Africa, the Americas and the Europe markets, becoming the favorite to many fans on those continents. Universal love and brotherhood is the foundation of Lutan’s music and he has wholeheartedly answered his calling to represent reggae and to play an influential role in its move into the future.
