Third World is a Jamaican reggae fusion band formed in 1973. Their sound is influenced by soul, funk and disco. Although it has undergone several line-up changes, Stephen "Cat" Coore and Richard Daley have been constant members. Third World started when keyboard player Michael "Ibo" Cooper and guitarist (and cellist) Stephen "Cat" Coore (son of former Deputy Prime Minister David Coore), who had originally played in The Alley Cats and then Inner Circle, subsequently left to form their own band along with Inner Circle singer Milton "Prilly" Hamilton. They recruited bassist Richard Daley, formerly of Ken Boothe's band and Tomorrow's Children, and added drummer Carl Barovier and former Inner Circle percussionist Irvin "Carrot" Jarrett before making their live debut in early 1974.
Born and raised in Saint Elizabeth Parish, Jamaica, Kumar grew up as many others, singing in the Church. Only after attending Edna Manley College in Kingston, and under the tutelage of Mr. Ibo Cooper of famous Third World did he find his true calling; to become the Lead Singer & Songwriter of Grammy Nominated “Raging Fyah”. As a talented singer, songwriter and music producer, it is very apparent Kumar’s passion and first love is Music. Raging Fyah had been a sort of “backing band” to many Jamaican artistes performing all over the Island. With Kumar added in 2010, they quickly released their first Album “Judgement Day” in 2011 to rave reviews. Extensive tours began all across Europe. Their second Album “Destiny” was released in 2014 and “Everlasting” in 2016 which was then nominated for a Grammy in Best Reggae Album Category. A prolific song writer, poet, and musician, Kumar is constantly writing and journaling, finding inspiration in his surroundings, while at home and on the road. After touring the world extensively from 2011 and being exposed to so many cultures and various musical genres, it is easily apparent and distinctive in the Raging Fyah catalogue. One only has to listen to the lyrics to learn this is a very grounded, but thirsty for knowledge, talented individual. Organizing a Music Festival is no easy task, but somehow Kumar finds the time to invent and keep the Wickie Wackie Music Fest in Bull Bay, which started out as a platform for up and coming Artistes in Jamaica, it has become a full blown yearly Festival with many talented musicians coming to the Island to perform. As well as writing and performing, Kumar has many collaborations under his belt, to name a few: “Pass It On” IKong “Get Up” – Kamil Bednarek (remix) “Fly Away” Nattali Rize “Change the World” – Leilani Wolfgramm & Jacob Hemphill (SOJA) “Would You Love Me” – Cidade Negra (remix) “Shadow Remix” – Stick Figure “Dial My Number” – Fortunate Youth “The Unforgiven” – Alborosie And now, July 2018 Kumar is embarking on his Solo Career. As Kumar.
