In a harmonious blend of beats, rhythms, and melodies, we unite to honour the enduring legacy of the friendly DJ and extraordinary producer, Jabaru. As the sun sets on his physical presence, Drumad embraces the eternal radiance of his musical genius through an album entitled ‘Tribute to Jabaru: A Call For Mental Health’.
Jabaru, a true luminary in the realm of Bass Music, especially within the revered domain of Drum & Bass, left an indelible mark on the hearts and souls of devoted fans and fellow artists alike. His untimely departure in 2023 left us with a profound sense of loss, yet within that shadow, we find comfort in the vibrant and luminous sounds he bestowed upon the world.
This forthcoming album combines unparalleled talent, bringing together diverse artists and producers from the Bass Music community. It serves as a testament to the enduring spirit of camaraderie that Jabaru epitomized. These artists have united to craft an auditory masterpiece that celebrates the essence of his music and pays homage to his unparalleled artistry.
This initiative also carries a profound purpose and mission. In partnership with the Portuguese IPSS institution GIRA (https://gira.org.pt), this album strives to shine a light on a vital issue: mental health. Amid life’s soaring highs and challenging lows, they recognise the significance of safeguarding mental well-being and cultivating a supportive community.
Through the resonance of Jabaru’s beats and the collective endeavours of these gifted musicians, Drumad and GIRA aim to raise awareness about the importance of mental health, dismantling barriers, and nurturing a space of empathy, comprehension, and healing.
Join us as we embark on an enthralling journey, where each track encapsulates the very essence of Jabaru’s spirit. Experience the energy, the passion, and the raw emotions poured into every note. Together, let’s transform this tribute into a catalyst for change, supporting every individual, regardless of their circumstances, and paving the way for a brighter, more compassionate world.
Save the date of 10th October 2023, to commemorate World Mental Health Day with the release of this symphony, filled with love, remembrance, and hope. Together, we will make a difference.
