Music has the power to not only entertain but positively impact the world around us. Nobody agrees more with this assertion than Jamaican singer Norman Di Barba. To the gifted chanter, music is but a means through which he can preach messages of hope and unite the world!
“My goal is to just be in a position where I have the attention of most, if not, all the people I can possibly reach so that whenever I send out the good message it is heard not just here but worldwide, and in the long term I hope to lead and unite all my brothers and sisters of the world through my music - spreading Love and Unity throughout the globe”, said Norman while speaking to Urban Craft magazine on the sidelines of announcing yet another fresh batch of singles to be released in the coming weeks.

“I am currently working on a few singles presently, some of which have already been released as well as fresh material that is yet to be recorded, so the fans should look out for a few more singles dropping shortly, at least until I am ready to put out a new EP”, he added.

Establishing yourself as a force to reckon with in what is virtually the home of reggae is no walk in the park, that’s for sure, but Norman has surely made a lot of positive strides over the years.

“I have been on quite a few shows to be honest but not a lot of the major ones such as Sting or Reggae Sumfest but where airplay is concerned I have always been getting some rotation ever since I started out in 2014 and it has only gotten better with time. I have also done theme songs and jingles for talk shows on different radio stations here in Jamaica also that are still being used to introduce the respective programmes daily. I believe that a lot of that is due to the fact that I always concentrate on doing clean uplifting music”, said the singer.

Speaking of his journey, one that is surely not lacking in terms of memorable highlights and milestones, the Jamaican said that the key was ‘faith and dedication’.

“My journey in the industry has not been an easy one however I have not given up or given in though sometimes the reality really hits hard when you see that you are not getting the love you think you really deserve, nevertheless, I’ve decided to press on and push with faith and dedication. I have been on television here in Jamaica about 4 to 5 times, 2 times on a programme called ‘Roll Out’ where 3 upcoming artists go head to head in a one minute ‘sing off’. I came 3rd the first time and second the last time.
“I have also been on a tv programme called ‘Intense’ that is very popular here on Jamaican television and I also have a few singles that have been on heavy rotation, some of which are still on rotation on the largest and most popular radio stations here in Jamaica so I am happy I will always be able to look back at all that with pride”, said Norman.

Having come as far as he has in the industry and been through all that he has been, it would only be right to ask where he derives motivation from.
“To be honest what really drives and inspires me to keep going is the love of the music and moreover the love for the people that support me because no matter what others may think, there will always be a percentage of people out there that will love your work and give you the credit that they think you really deserve”, he said.
