Ijahman Levi, Jah Shakespear, Lioness Rebelation
IJahman Levi (Jam, live)
Zachtmoedige rootsveteraan, rastafari in werk én leven.
Opgegroeid (°1946) in Jamaica, gemigreerd naar de UK op zijn 17e, daar begonnen bij The Vibrations en daarna bij Rudie and Youth aka IJahmen (meervoud) & the Shell Shock Show. Twee jaar cel uitgezeten (1972-1974) en zich toen helemaal gewijd aan rastafari, een nummer 1 hit gescoord in de UK (1985, een duet met zijn vrouw Madge), teruggekeerd naar Jamaica en intussen fiere bezitter van een opnamestudio in Christiana, Jamaica. En dan hebben we nog niets gezegd over zijn catalogue en songwriting credits (check T. Sutherland).

Having spent formative years of his life in both the "roots" environment of his native Jamaica, and in the culturally diverse and cosmopolitan England, IJahman's music defies boundries and narrow definitions. Bypassing marketing gimmicks and musical cliches, IJahman's music touches the feelings of spirituality, love and humanity that unite all true music lovers. (source)

ISRAEL VIBRATION, TLP, Turntable Dubbers
Israel Vibration: rootsreggae op z'n best door een groep die kan buigen op een jarenlange live ervaring én een resem hits, waarvan The Same Song ongetwijfeld het grootste anthem is. Jaren geleden overwonnen de groepsleden vooroordelen, armoede en ziekte. Ze werden in dezelfde poliokliniek behandeld en botsten jaren daarna terug op elkaar in Kingston. Alledrie waren ze ondertussen overtuigd rastafari met een grote liefde voor muziek. 6 jaar lang traden ze op in de straten van Kingston in ruil voor voedsel en onderdak. Tot ze ontdekt werden en het tot absolute grootheden schopten in de roots reggae. Met hun inspirerende teksten verkondigen ze overal ter wereld hun boodschap vol peace, love and harmony, verpakt in hemelse en melodieuze laid back rootsreggae.

Capleton

Capleton
King Shango, King David, The Fireman and The Prophet. A wise man once said that a prophet is not without honour save in his own country and so it has been with Capleton. While the veteran DJ's words and works long ago earned him the title of "The Prophet", the respect and honor that should rightfully be his have been a long time coming. "Anytime you try to uplift righteousness and upliftment of the people them, then you ah go get a fight", says the hottest entertainer in the worldwide reggae fraternity. "Bob Marley come do it and them fight him. And when Bob Marley dead, that's when they start to endorse him. I already aware of this, I am not unaware. So I know the more them fight I is the more I get stronger" In the fast-moving world of dancehall reggae, fame and success are hard to obtain and easy to lose. Fans can be fickle, and trends change in the blink of an eye, leaving most entertainers with painfully short career spans. Only a rare few can remain relevant from year to year, holding their audience's attention and leaving them crying for more. His lyrics are deep, precise, and thoughtful. His stage shows are nothing less than dynamic, explosive performances. But his remarkable staying power and longevity may be Capleton's greatest gift. Born Clifton George Bailey III on April 13, 1967, in the rural parish of St. Mary, Capleton earned his future stage name from friends who were so impressed with his sharp reasoning skills that they named him after the most famous lawyer in town.

Gregory Isaacs

Gregory Isaacs
Gregory Isaacs is a Reggae singer/songwriter, born Gregory Anthony Isaacs on 15 July 1950 in Fletchers Land, Kingston, Jamaica, and is known as "The Cool Ruler" for his seductive crooning vocal style. Gregory attributes his greatest musical influences to R&B greats Sam Cooke and Percy Sledge, in addition to Delroy Wilson, Alton Ellis and Ken Boothe. In the late 1960's, Gregory first performed in a vocal trio called The Concords, after being encouraged by Byron Lee; but 1970 the group had split up and the singer songwriter would form his own imprint, African Museum. In the late 1970s, he emerged as one of the most prolific and popular recording artists in Jamaica. He released a number of self-produced singles on his own African Museum (JA) label with Errol Dunkley. Much of Isaacs' output reflected the 'conscious' themes of Roots Reggae, but Isaacs was equally adept at interpreting more mainstream Lovers Rock material. Early hits include "My Only Lover", "Sinner Man" and "Mr. Cop", recorded at Lee Perry's Black Ark Studio. A period in the 1970s with the GG's label and its producer Alvin Ranglin produced hits like "Border" and "Number One". Personal problems affected him, particularly battles with a cocaine addiction and possession charge; which prevented him from touring in North America for a significant part of his career, until a pardon could eventually be secured.

Jah Mason

Jah Mason
Born in Manchester, Jamaica, reggae singer Jah Mason made his debut in 1991 with the single "Selassie I Call We." Recorded for Junior Reid's record label, the single appeared under the name Perry Mason, a nickname Mason had picked up during his childhood due to his ability to settle arguments. He always preferred the country to the city since it was easier to meditate there and as Mason claims, "I can communicate with the birds and the trees." After hooking up with David House, who had successfully guided singer Capleton to international fame, this spiritual side of Mason began to flourish. In 1995 he became a member of the Rastafarian branch Bobo Ashanti, changed his performing name from Perry Mason to Jah Mason, and began recording conscious reggae where the message was as important as the music. Jamaican hits like "My Princess Gone" and "Lion Look" and guest shots on a few Jah Cure singles appeared before the full-lengths Keep Your Joy (Ghetto Technology) and Unlimited (Reggae Vibes) both landed in 2002. Never Give Up (On The Corner) from 2004 found him working with international producers including Dan "Piloni" Kark from Israel. The 2006 album Princess Gone: The Saga Bed appeared on the VP label, which was distributed by the worldwide giant Universal.

Black Uhuru

Black Uhuru
Black Uhuru is a Jamaican reggae band probably best known for their hits "Shine Eye Gal", "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," "Sinsemilla," "Solidarity," and "What Is Life?". They were the first group to win a Grammy in the reggae category when it was introduced in 1985. They originally formed as 'Black Sounds Uhuru' (the Kiswahili word for freedom). The first line-up of the group was Garth Dennis, Don Carlos, and Derrick "Duckie" Simpson. The group has undergone several lineup changes: Carlos left, replaced by Michael Rose; then Dennis left to play with The Wailing Souls, and was replaced by Errol Nelson. During this early period, the band's most famous recording is the album entitled Love Crisis, later rereleased as Black Sounds Of Freedom. In 1979 the group was joined by Sandra "Puma" Jones, a social worker from North Carolina, USA. Under this lineup, (Rose, Simpson and Jones), with Sly & Robbie as producers (and also permanently employed on drum and bass), they released the band's most popular albums: Sinsemilla, Red, Chill Out, and the Grammy-winning Anthem¹, as well as others. During this period, Black Uhuru became one of the most popular reggae groups in the world, regularly touring with the likes of The Police and The Rolling Stones. Live 1984 (a concert at the Rockpalast in Germany, but was actually recorded on October 18, 1981) captures the band at the height of its powers. After Rose went solo in 1985, Junior Reid joined for a few records and also left; Puma Jones left in 1987 (and died of cancer three years later, in 1990). In 1990, Simpson reunited with Dennis and Carlos in the original line-up of the group. They recorded several albums and toured extensively. By the end of the 90's, Dennis and Carlos left the band and fought a legal battle against Simpson over the name Black Uhuru. Simpson won the lawsuit and formed yet another incarnation of Black Uhuru with Andrew Bees as lead singer. Only one album, Dynasty, was released before Bees left the group. In February 2004, it was announced in the Jamaican press that Simpson and Michael Rose had re-united under the name "Black Uhuru feat. Michael Rose". Together with a female backing singer named Kay Starr, they released a single, "Dollars" and performed at several concerts including "Western Consciousness 2004" on April 28 in Jamaica, of which a live video was released shortly thereafter. A new album has been reported to be in progress. == Discography == '''Group: Derrick "Duckie" Simpson, Michael Rose, Errol "Tarzan" Nelson''' *1977 - '''Love Crisis''' *1981 - '''Black Sounds of Freedom''' ("Love Crisis" reedition) '''Group: Derrick "Duckie" Simpson, Michael Rose, Sandra "Puma" Jones''' *1979 - '''Showcase''' *1980 - '''Black Uhuru''' *1980 - '''Sinsemilia''' *1981 - '''Red''' *1982 - '''Chill Out''' *1983 - '''Guess Who's Coming To Dinner''' ("Black Uhuru" reedition) *1983 - '''Anthem''' '''Group: Derrick Simpson, Delroy "Junior" Reid, Sandra "Puma" Jones''' *1986 - '''Brutal''' *1987 - '''Positive''' (Puma Jones replaced Olafunke) '''Group: Derrick "Duckie" Simpson, Garth Dennis, Don Carlos''' *1990 - '''Now''' *1991 - '''Iron Storm''' *1993 - '''Mystical truth''' *1994 - '''Strongg''' '''Group: Derrick "Duckie" Simpson, Jenifah Nyah, Andrew Bees''' *1998 - '''Unification''' *2001 - '''Dynasty''' '''Live / Dub albums:''' *1982 - '''Uhuru in Dub''' *1982 - '''Tear It Up - Live''' (album and video) *1983 - '''The Dub Factor''' *1986 - '''Brutal Dub''' *1987 - '''The Positive Dub''' *1988 - '''Live''' *1988 - '''Live In New York City''' *1990 - '''Now Dub''' *1990 - '''Love Dub''' ("Uhuru In Dub" reedition) *1992 - '''Iron Storm Dub''' *1993 - '''Mystical Truth Dub''' *1994 - '''Strongg Dubb''' *2000 - '''Live 1984''' *2001 - '''In Dub''' *2001 - '''Dubbin'It Live''' (summer 2001, at Paléo Festival)

Sizzla

Sizzla
Sizzla Kalonji (real name Miguel Orlando Collins) is a Jamaican reggae musician. He was born on 17 April 1976, in St Mary, Jamaica, of devout Rastafari parents and raised in August Town. He is unusually prolific, even by Jamaican standards. Sizzla has worked with such artists as Mobb Deep. Sizzla, along with reggae recording artists such as Capleton, Buju Banton, and Anthony B, are credited with leading a movement toward a re-embracement of Rastafarian values in contemporary reggae music by recording material which is concerned primarily with spirituality, social consciousness, explores common themes, such as Babylon's corrupting influence, the disenfranchisement of ghetto youth, oppression of the black nation and Sizzla's abiding faith in Jah and resistance against perceived agents of oppression. Sizzla has over 40 full completed albums sold in record stores to date, the most popular which have been "Black Woman & Child" and "Da Real Thing" on the Digital B label, "Praise Ye Jah" on Xterminator, and "Rise to the Occasion" on Greensleeves. Recently, however, he has come under fire for the homophobic content of many of his lyrics, and the advocacy of violence against gays.

Beenie Man

Beenie Man
Anthony Moses Davis (born August 22, 1973 in Kingston, Jamaica), better known by the stage name Beenie Man, is a well established reggae artist and DJ. He was involved in the music industry from ayoung age when he won the Tastee Talent contest in 1980. Only one year later, when he was eight years old, he recorded a single, "Too Fancy", with record producer "Junjo" Lawes. By 1983, Beenie Man was recording with heavyweight DJs, such as Dillinger and Fathead and released his debut album, The Invincible Beenie Man: The Ten Year Old DJ Wonder and the single "Over the Sea". He was booed off stage at a show celebrating the visit of Nelson Mandela. In 1993 at the very popular show Sting he accused fellow deejay Bounty Killer that the elder artist had stolen his catchphrase, "people dead". This triggered a lyrical battle which continued on the air with each artist counteracting the other's songs. Finally, in 1995, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer settled their differences on the air by actually signing a peace treaty and the two recorded an album together, Guns Out. This was followed by a single, "No Mama No Cry", a rehash of the Bob Marley classic "No Woman No Cry", speaking out against violence and inspired by the murder of Pan Head, another popular Deejay. Partially as a result of prodding from his producers, Sly and Robbie, Beenie Man soon converted to the Rastafari movement. In 1994, he was signed by Island Records and released the critically acclaimed album Blessed. In 1995, Beenie Man released a remix of Barrington Levy's "Under Mi Sensi" in the United Kingdom, and collaborated with Dennis Brown and Triston Palma to release Three Against War and Lt. Stitchie on Mad Cobra Meets Lt. Stitchie & Beenie Man. He took another step up the ladder in 1996, releasing the seminal Maestro, produced by Patrick Roberts and shot him to UK fame. During the period from the mid to late '90s, Beenie Man dominated the Jamaican charts to the extent that he perhaps had a good claim to the crown of "Dancehall King", a title only bestowed previously on Yellowman in the early 1980s. In 1998, Beenie Man signed to Virgin Records to release albums in the United States. His first American offering was The Doctor (1998). In 2000, Beenie Man teamed up with Arturo Sandoval and Wyclef Jean (The Fugees) to release The Art & Life. During the late 1990s, Beenie Man began his conquest of America with the hits, "Romie", "Who Am I" and "Girls Dem Sugar", which featured American R&B singer, Mya. In 2002, he had a sizeable hit with a duet with Janet Jackson called "Feel It Boy", but his biggest break in America came in early 2004 with the release of a remix of "Dude", featuring guest vocals by fellow Jamaican Ms. Thing, as well as rhymes by Shawnna.

U-Roy

U-Roy
U-Roy (born Ewart Beckford September 21, 1942) is a Jamaican musician also known as The Originator and Hugh Roy. He was born in Jones Town, Jamaica. U-Roy's musical career began in 1961 when he began DJing at various sound systems, eventually working with King Tubby. Tubby was then experimenting with his equipment, in the process of inventing dub music. With U-Roy as his most prominent DJ, King Tubby's new sound became extraordinarily popular and U-Roy became a Jamaican celebrity. He recorded Dynamic Fashion Way, his first recording, in 1969 for Keith Hudson and then worked with almost every producer of the island: Lee Perry, Peter Tosh, Bunny Lee, Phil Pratt, Sonia Pottinger, Rupie Edwards, Alvin Ranglin and Lloyd Daley. In 1970, Jamaican singer John Holt became enamoured of U-Roy's technique. Working with Duke Reid, U-Roy's fame grew through a series of singles, including Wake the Town and "Wear You to the Ball". U-Roy's success continued throughout the 1970s, most famously with the album Dread in a Babylon with its iconic picture of him disappearing in a cloud of cannabis smoke while holding an enormous pipe, and a song called Chalice in the Palace, fantasising about smoking with Queen Elizabeth II in Buckingham Palace. He had become one of the island's biggest stars by the early 1980s, also garnering significant acclaim in the United Kingdom. His latest album is 2000's Serious Matter.

Junior Kelly

Junior Kelly
Tall, dreadlocked Junior Kelly is a devout Rastafarian on a serious musical mission which is manifested through the quality of his contemplative lyrics, the diversity of his substantial subject matter and his inspirational delivery. Born in Kingston 13, Junior was raised in nearby Spanish Town. Throughout his childhood, he was surrounded by music, his grandfather and father both played banjo, his mother sang in the Church and his oldest brother Jim was a popular Deejay with the Kilamanjaro Sound

There was a sense of comfort and security within the family; Despite their poor economic status they were rich in other ways. If it's soup today, we're happy, if it's crackers tomorrow, we're still happy, relates Junior, because we knew we had each other to lean on. The family was plummeted into depression with the murder of junior's oldest brother Jim. A part time caterer, Jim was the family's principal breadwinner and a role model for Junior ; Jim regularly practiced his lyrical toasts in the family living room, greatly influencing the career path of his youngest brother.

After Jim's death, to help support his family Junior followed soundsystems all over the island just for the opportunity to demonstrate his vocal and lyrical talents. He also began auditioning for several of the Producers comprising Kingston's crowded music circuit, attempting to record songs. Adhering to his principled Rastafarian lifestyle, he refused to compromise his lyrical content by writing lewd lyrics or songs disrespecting women.

Sugar Minott

Sugar Minott
The Kingston, Jamaica born, Lincoln "Sugar" Barrington Minott is one of the great figures of Reggae music, and is fully justified to carry the status as the "Godfather of Dancehall". In the early 1970's Sugar Minott went to Studio One Recording Studios. By laying vocal tracks over the original tapes from the 60's, rather than using a live band, he caused a revolution in the sound that brought a new style to Reggae music--Dancehall. Sugar started his musical journey by entering talent contests in his youth. After he finished school he began selling records and formed his own sound system Black Roots, which was eventually to develop into the mighty Youthman Promotion. In 1969 Sugar became part of the African Brothers, dropping several successful singles that were an early example of the Rastafari movement's influence on the Jamaican music scene. Sugar has released a number of superb albums that he produced himself that established him as a bonafide worldwide Reggae star. These include "Ghetto-ology", "Bitter Sweet", "African Girl", "Music For Roots Lovers", "Sweeter Than Sugar", "Dancehall Showcase" and "Black Roots". Sugar continues to record and tour across the globe and he has released over 60 albums to date. Sugar Minott remains the true, original dancehall Reggae star and continues to be an inspiration and mentor to many up and coming artistes in Jamaica and across the world.

COCOA TEA

COCOA TEA
Cocoa Tea (Calvin Scott) born in Rocky Point, Clarendon was one of many vocalists who emerged from the dancehall 'explosion' of the early 80's in Jamaica. His honeyed voice brought him a healthy following with a marvellous vitality and purity of vocal tone. He has recorded with most of the top producers on the island at one time or another and his body of work includes; 'Lost Me Sonia', 'Rocking Dolly', 'Good Life', 'Heathen' and countless others worth checking out. Cocoa Tea (born September 3, 1959 as Calvin George Scott, Jamaica) is a Jamaican reggae dancehall singer, songwriter, and DJ. He was popular in Jamaica from 1985, but has become successful worldwide only since the 1990s. One of his most famous songs is "Rikers Island", which was later put into a dub version by Nardo Ranks entitled "Me No Like Rikers Island" (featured on Dancehall Reggaespanol) which was released the same year as the original Rikers Island. He also gained fame with the song "18 and Over". He gained notoriety in March 2008 after releasing a song titled "Barack Obama" in support of the U.S. Presidential candidate by the same name.
