Meta & The Cornerstones
   
     

Already a favorite on the European Reggae and World Music festival circuit, 2017 will be when Senegal born Meta Dia’s third album will be released and when the US really gets to see Meta and The Cornerstones live on tour. Fans of Lucky Dube will be thrilled to see the artist who is poised to carry his message forward.

Senegal born Meta Dia’s unforgettable vocals are complemented by the incomparable sounds of his band The Cornerstones. Meta and The Cornerstones’ music is warm and embodying, immensely addictive, and destined to forever change the dynamics of Reggae music. Through pure musical genius and humble spirits, the band successfully fuses Reggae, Afro-Pop, Hip-Hop, Rock, and Soul music with passionate lyrics in English, French, Wolof and Fulani.

Meta and The Cornerstones first album 'Forward Music' (2008) contains hits such as 'Somewhere in Africa', 'Cornerstone' and 'Still Around'. Their second album, 'Ancient Power' (2013) pays a tribute to the ageless sounds of reggae preserved by the history of its legends. Co-produced by Steel Pulse’s Sidney Mills, this 14-track musical journey features musicians such as Dean Fraser, Julian Marley, and Wayne "C-Sharp" Clarke, and collaborations with Reggae legend U-Roy, Capleton, and Damian Marley.

Meta and The Cornerstones’ 3rd album HIRA ' is set to be released in February 2017. The album was recorded at Peter Gabriels Real World Studios and mixes world music genres with roots reggae . With this third and most personal album produced by Meta Dia himself, the band seeks to trespass boundaries and embrace differences between people, cultures and religions.

With their mission statement 'each one, teach one' Meta and The Cornerstones are set off to conquer the world with fresh sounding soul pounding roots world reggae.
