Natalio Rijssel, better known as Kalibwoy, was born on December 27, 1987 in Amsterdam. Kalibwoy is the leader of the Dutch Dancehall sound. But that’s not enough for him. What makes Kalibwoy a good artist is his drive and passion for music. His inspiration comes from countless different movements. He not only uses rhythms and sounds from raggae, jazz, hip-hop and Latin music, but also from the powerful soul music of Otis Redding. His love for Dancehall was strengthened when he moved from cold Amsterdam to sunny Suriname at the age of 14. There, his love for Sizzla's raggae music has brought him new friends, who have changed his life forever. His sounds can be traced back to the well-known Dancehall artists Sizzla and Elephent Man, although he himself indicates Vybz Kartel, as they both use the same way of working. Nevertheless, Kalibwoy takes it one step further. In 2008 there was a collaboration with the Jamrock Crew. Together with DJ Waxfiend, DJ MBA, DJ JAH and Shyrock / Maikal X they founded the Dutch Dancehall scene. This collaboration has brought him other things in addition to performances. For example, he won the prestigious prize "De Grote Prijs van Nederland" in 2010. Had several collaborations with Boaz v / d Beatz, Yellow Claw, Broederliefde, Dopebwoy and more.
