WATCH: Jamaican busker touring Ireland stuns Dublin crowd with his music

Sasha Brady

A Jamaican busker brought some sunshine to a dreary Dublin day with his powerful voice and mix of creole, soul and blues music.

The cheerful busker stopped shoppers in the tracks on Dublin's Drury Street as they stood in the rain to watch him perform.

"I thought somebody had a ghetto blaster in the street or something when I heard him singing," said Michael from Balinteer.

"I was in the barbershop and came out to see where the music was coming from. I couldn't believe it was a busker. It sounds so professional. He's great, isn't he?

"It's lovely, it really just cheers you up as you're going about your business. I'd listen to him all day if it wasn't raining."

Bam, the busker, is from Jamaica but travels around Ireland with his blend of creole, soul and blues music.

"I love Ireland but the damp weather can be tough on my voice," he told the crowd, before quietening them with his velvet-smooth vocals.
