French and Jamaican national, Charly B is an international singer. He was born in Rome (Italy) on 28 September 1981, in a multi-cultural environment (parents from French/Armenian/German origins). He sings in Patois or in French, and he mixes various styles: reggae, dancehall, hip hop and more, to bring his own vibe, very personal and unique.
Winner of many competitions especially champion for Switzerland (2005), and lately of the competition for the best reggae song in Europe (2009), he alternates very fast songs with slower ones, always with conscious lyrics, on problems of our society, or simply sings songs of love, which he has plenty of for his close surrounding.
