IKAL (Michael Jacas) was born on the island of Jamaica, West Indies. He is the first child of the union of his Jamaican mother and his father of Cuban descent. Ikal’s passion for music arose from his Rastafarian Religion, where musicians such as Bob Marley and Peter Tosh were his inspiration. He became increasingly active in the music industry. Ikal has worked with Island records and Taxi Productions. He eventually started his own production company “ Ical Productions” working with many popular artist as songwriter or manager for such artist as Jack Radics, Chaka Demus and Pliers and Spanner Banner , to name a few.
After stepping away from the industry for a few years in late 2013 Ikal was contacted to consult on a project. After completion of this project he realized his passion for music was too strong to just do one project. He focused his efforts of on his production company and developing new talent. However, during this new journey Ikal realized he posed an untapped talent, he could sing. With the guidance and support of individuals such as well-known Reggae producer Robbie Shakespeare Ikal started working on his debut album “Raid”.
Now the journey begins.
