“Ja Yl’ Son (of Lights) aka “O Camoes Preto” is a santomense-portuguese writer and singer. Raised within the mixed suburban zones of Portugal, since a very young age he gained a taste for Reggae, Hip Hop, Jazz and other styles of music. He started singing and rapping at 10, but it was only in his first Selectas nights in Lisbon when he was a teen, that he found the love for freestyle and toasting. His journey started by singing in different jam sessions around Lisbon, Almada, Seixal, Amadora and others spots, until being invited to join “Nomad Embassy Soundsystem”, a collective with “craft system inspired by the Jamaican culture of the fifties, through Roots, Steppa and Dub” being the first toaster for the group. Ja Yl’ Son never lost his desire to Jam and kept doing it all around the town, in places such as Arroz Estudios, Anjos70, Titanic, etc in recent years. In 2020, alongside “In-Finita”, he published his first poetry book, “Rasgos”. His different flows, rhymes, metrics and “Slanga” give energy and soul to his performances.
