Biografia:

Winning Jah è nato in una famiglia di griot, Kingsley Eno Osagie, musicista di origini africane Tuareg di Fulani hausa. Egli scopre la musica reggae in tenera età con vasta e solida esperienza e cultura degli strumenti più utilizzati nell'ambito dei ritmi africani, djembe di molti paesi accomunati dalle stesse sonorità: Mali Niger, Burkina Faso, Nigeria ecc. che hanno molto influenzato e si sono fecondamente intrecciati con altre musicalità: jazz, blues, ecc.

Winning Jah suona una musica che ha il compito “di svegliare la coscienza„ degli ascoltatori. Di fede Rastafari, le sue canzoni parlano delle ingiustizie inflitte alla gente del suo paese e più in generale delle iniquità subite dal popolo africano e la persone più debole, Proprio per questo motivo il pubblico africano sente una profonda affinità con i testi di Winning Jah che canta per tutte le persone oppresse e debole .

Winning Jah e molto nota nel ambito di percussionista, Cantautore e arrangiatore di musica Reggae e Afro, interessa molti strumenti originali africani, molti dei quali hanno radici antichissime nel tempo ed è sempre stata rivolta a coinvolgere nel mondo occidentale, ed in particolare in Italia dove risiede da molti anni, tutti coloro che hanno curiosità ed interesse a conoscere più a fondo musicalità di altri paesi favorendo l'interagire tra diverse culture musicali.

Ha svolto a tale scopo l'attività di percussionista attraverso spettacoli/serate/concerti/festival sia in Italia che all'estero, come l'organizzazione del Festival di Cultura e Musica Africana, Festival Africa Torino "2010", "2011", "2012". Cotonou solidarity Jazz festival "2013",Africa da cui sono stati tratti video, sia attraverso la pubblicazione di album discografici sia da solo che in collaborazione con altri noti musicisti africani ed europei , Kassoum Diarra, "Majek Fashek", Fela Kuti, "Ebere-Chi", "Mpj Donbale", "Naxis De Genexis", "Rasta Jamezs", Small Axe, "Ginger Brew", "Andrea Allione" e molti altri, affiancandovi l'attività di Street Concert, per abbracciare anche l'ampio pubblico che meno si reca autonomamente presso specifiche iniziative musicali.

A tale attività musicale si affianca, oltre che alla finalità di diffusione delle sonorità Afrobeat e Reggae, l' utilizzazione di tali ritmi sonori come aiuto a particolari situazioni nell'ambito della "Music therapy", quindi presso utenti e/o strutture dove la musica è individuata come stimolo psico-fisico, collaborando con l'Organizzazione Internazionale no-profit "Aid People Change" di cui è co-fondatore, alla realizzazione di uno specifico video girato a Dublino " Aid people Change" ad agosto "2013", essendo lui stesso affetto da disabilità motoria, oltre a passate e presenti collaborazioni con il CPD "Consulta per la disabilità di" Torino ed a spazi di “Music & Dance Reggae Therapy” proposti in Italia presso Case di Riposo, comunità, ecc.
