Asha Heights

Roots and Culture’s rising star

Asha Heights has always been surrounded by music. His father was a sound man for a local sound system in Old Harbour Bay, Jamaica, so he grew up at the forefront of the Jamaican Reggae scene.


During his teenage years Asha had a very keen interest in music and was often on the wrong side of the teachers at school for always singing in class.
