Kabir, a veteran of the Boston hip hop scene, will release his third full length album, “Peaceful Solutions” on April 25, 2006 in partnership between Uncle Trouble Music (Kabir’s own label) and NYC based Raptivism Records. Kabir, who has released tracks in the past with Mr. Lif, Esoteric and Virtuoso, is unique as the only nationally recognized MC of South Asian descent. He is also the son of world-famous Nobel Prize winning economist Amartya Sen.

Like his father, Kabir focuses his talents on alleviating the ills plaguing world society. “Peaceful Solutions” takes a hard look at many of the struggles going on around the globe today and advocates a new way of attacking the problems that we as a society face. Tracks like “Where You At?” take a more personal look at Kabir’s search for inner peace in addition to his belief in a more enlightened political process.

Vincent Merry, President of socially conscious Raptivism Records says “Kabir is in a unique position to influence people in many walks of life. We hope that his fusion of hip-hop, funk and conscious themes reaches that maximum number of people possible, starting in his home, Boston, where so many people come to study.”

Kabir will be performing regularly around the northeast in support of the new album with initial CD Release Party dates in Boston and New York. On Friday, April 28th he will be at the Paradise Lounge – 969 Commonwealth Ave. in Boston with Primary Others, Elemental Zazen, ViceVersah and others. On Saturday, April 29th Kabir will bring his hip hop party to The Bowery Poetry Club – 308 Bowery, New York, NY along with label-mate L.I.F.E. Long, DJ Synapse, Elemental Zazen, and other special guests.

Kabir has recently joined a new group created by the Mayor’s Office in Boston called, “Mayor Menino’s Hip Hop Roundtable,” addressing an increase in youth gun violence in and around. He runs workshops called “Hip hop as Education” at many private and public schools throughout the northeast. These workshops are designed to teach the youth of today about the positive power of music and hip hop and to encourage these students to find healthy ways to express themselves, while being respectful and true to the art.

“Peaceful Solutions” will be distributed thru Ryko Distribution and will be available initially in most major retail outlets throughout the northeast.

Kabir’s Biography
Kabir (raindazedent.com) is an independent rapper, singer and producer from London. His music brews a robust blend of raw flow and message-oriented lyrics with unusual beats and soulful melodies. He currently lives in Cambridge, MA, and performs regularly at colleges and clubs around the Northeast. Kabir has performed alongside a wide variety of musical giants such as The Roots, Wyclef Jean, Talib Kweli, Lyrics Born, Common, Soulive, Maceo Parker and Galactic.

Kabir’s first self-produced album "Cultural Confusion" (featuring Mr.Lif, Virtuoso, & Esoteric) was released in 2001 and independently sold approximately 3000 units. “Cultural Confusion” is a multi-layered concept album with raw beats, real rhymes and instrumental interludes. Several songs on the record reveal Kabir’s personal struggles with his own multi-racial identity, while others take a broader view of cultures and the conflicts between people.

Kabir’s second album, “Fuel for the Fire” (Uncle Trouble Music) was released in August of 2003. For this album Kabir again called upon the services of some of Boston’s hottest MCs including: Esoteric, Virtuoso, Shuman, and III Kings. A number of talented singers also contributed to this album such as: Amayo (Antibalas Afro-Beat Orchestra), Lady K (Red Pill), and Ajahni (Vibewise). Kabir produced many of the tracks on this album himself, and a number of guest producers also put their stamp on the record. “Fuel for the Fire” is about the way people live and the emotions that inspire us to do what we do. Each song on the record represents a different influence that affects us.

Kabir’s new album, “Peaceful Solutions,” is due out on April 25th and is being released in partnership between Uncle Trouble Music and Raptivism Records. Once again Kabir has collaborated with a variety of different artists including Shuman, Ryan Montbleau, and Maria Alexieva on vocals. Many of the tracks on “Peaceful Solutions” are self produced, while others are done in collaboration with some of the same producers that Kabir worked with on, “Fuel for the Fire”. “Peaceful Solutions” will be Kabir’s most widely distributed album.

Kabir currently performs live re-creations of these songs as well as those from “Cultural Confusion” and “Fuel for the Fire” with his band. The band features a rotating lineup of all-star musicians, however, Kabir is always held down by his DJ, Axel Foley on the turntables. Kabir’s band provides the backbone for his live show: an infectious dose of thoughtful, energetic music.
