Origine du Groupe : Sierra Leone
Style : World Music , Reggae
Sortie : 2010

Formed in West African refugee camps, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars have risen like a phoenix from the ashes of destruction to create this infectious and celebratory new record. Produced by Steve Berlin, renowned for his work with Los Lobos, Angélique Kidjo, Michelle Shocked, Rickie Lee Jones and Ozomatli, among others, Rise & Shine was recorded in Freetown, Sierra Leone and New Orleans, Louisiana. Much like the band members themselves, the residents of New Orleans know first hand both the bitterness of exile and the redemptive power of music, and the spirit of the Crescent City permeates this uplifting album.

Rise & Shine reflects how far the band has come in the past few years, after multiple international tours and recording experience with the likes of Aerosmith and Mavis Staples. With an expert producer at the helm, Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars have realized a unique and seamlessly coherent sound: a fusion of traditional West African music and roots reggae, inflected with New Orleans styles. The album's 13 tracks embrace the wide array of musical influences the All Stars have encountered on their rise to international fame.

Madrid, España. Ruben Morodo regresa este año con un nuevo trabajo en el cual plasma líricas que describen tanto injusticia social, reclamos de igualdad, así como sus características historias descriptivas de fiestas, amores y desamores, todas adornadas con su inconfundible voz ragga. A lo largo de su carrera, Morodo ha tenido un estilo que viaja del reggae al hip-hop apoyado siempre con un sound system de enorme calidad.

From Wikipedia :
Il est élevé par sa mère Joan Hashman jusqu'à l'âge de huit ans. Ne pouvant subvenir à tous ses besoins, elle décide de le confier à ses grands-parents qui habitent un quartier non loin de Trenchtown. À 13 ans, grâce à l'aide de son ami Al Campbell, Jacob enregistre ses deux premiers titres (Love is a message et My girl has left me) dans le studio de Coxsone Dodd. Un autre passage chez Bunny Lee avec la chanson What more can I do le détermine vraiment à devenir chanteur.

Cependant il lui faudra encore attendre six ans avant de pouvoir enregistrer le morceau qui lui fera connaitre le succès. C'est Augustus Pablo qui lui propose d'enregistrer Keep on knocking au Studio Dynamic, une variante de Love is a message.Le titre connait un véritable succès et Jacob reste donc à ses côtés quelque temps et s'investit de plus en plus dans la musique et dans le mouvement Rastafari.

En 1976 il rejoint Inner Circle et ils enregistrent "Tenement Yard", ce sera le plus grand succès que Jacob Miller ai connu. De nombreux hits suivent tels que Tire fi lick weed ina Bush, Foward Jah Jah Children, Take a Lift, 80 000 careless Ethiopians,... Inner Circle est alors un groupe incontournable de la scène jamaïcaine.

En 1978 il joue dans le film Rockers.

Il meurt tragiquement au volant de sa voiture le 23 mars 1980.

Reggae brasileño. La banda Ponto de Equilíbrio surgio a finales de 1999, en Rio de Janeiro, con una propuesta de concientizacion a traves del autentico lenguaje rastafari.
El contenido de las letra denuncia desigualdades sociales criadas por el sistema capitalista, y alerta con un llamado espiritual de amor, verdad y justicia, y mobiliza a un pueblo en la lucha por sus derechos.
El nombre Ponto Do Equilibro resume el objetivo de los integrantes del grupo: el equilibrio entre el cielo y la tierra, positivo y negativo, bien o mal. Todas son facetas de la misma moneda o estan opuestos porque asi se armonizan

Though THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION skips over some of Mutabaruka's important output, notably his RAS Records re-issued debut, CHECK IT!, the compilation does draw from the dub poet's fine Shanachie albums, MELANIN MAN, ANY WHICH WAY FREEDOM, and THE MYSTERY UNFOLDS, among others. Mutabaruka's mission to raise consciousness about political injustice, racial discrimination, and the roots of black identity first came to fruition as written poetry (he published three patois-driven books in Jamaica) before he decided to set his words to music. The musical backing on his albums is a striking combination of deep roots rhythms and studio dub treatments, creating a tense sonic landscape for the poet's messages.

This release will be of particular interest to Mutabaruka fans for its inclusion of several previously unreleased singles, including a number of collaborations--"Great Kings of Africa" (with Dennis Brown and Ini Kamoze), "Wise Up" (with dancehall pioneer Sugar Minott), and "Psalms 24" (with Luciano). In addition, there are album tracks like the heady, shuffling "Bun Dung Babylon" and a live version of the classic "Witeman Country." THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION, along with CHECK IT!, provides an excellent overview of Mutabaruka's most important work.

Dadawah and Nyahbinghi are Ras Michael's first two albums, and together on one CD, they highlight both sides of his sound.  The former blends traditional Rasta drumming with reggae bass lines, electric guitars, and other modern styles, while the latter contains Rasta drumming and chanting accompanied only by an occasional flute.   Unless you're a Rasta music purist, Dadawah will almost certainly appeal to you more than Nyahbinghi.  Although it only contains four tracks, Dadawah is a hauntingly somber, atmospheric work or art whose melodies and music blend perfectly to draw you in (You may recognize "Zion Land" from  Dennis Brown's hit "Africa.").  The melodies on Nyahbinghi, on the other hand, are only interesting in comparison to the music.  Only "Rise Jah Jah Children" arose any reaction from me, as it utilizes the melody from the doo-wop hit "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."  The rest of the songs are dull, mournful chants and/or hymns, each with the same sleep-inducing rhythm.  Why couldn't Dadawah be 12 tracks and Nyahbinghi  four?

To celebrate the release of its 50th box set, Trojan Records asked the members of its online forum to suggest some hard to find tracks for a reggae rarities anthology, and the end result is this intriguing three-disc collection that scoots all over the place. Disc one, which covers Jamaican releases from 1966 to 1969, is probably the strongest of the three, yielding gems like the Soul Leaders' laconic "Pour On the Sauce," Gladstone Anderson's "Chances" (culled from the pianist's debut album, 1968's Glad Sounds), and "Worries (A Yard)" by the Versatiles, featuring lead vocals by a young Junior Byles. The second disc covers 1969 to 1973, and includes Boris Gardiner's powerful Hammond B-3 instrumental "Darkness," the Cables' "(Name) Ring a Bell" (with founder Keeble Drummond on lead vocal), and the great Slim Smith covering Billy Stewart's "Sitting in the Park." Disc three concentrates on British releases from 1970 to 1977, and although the U.K. reggae scene is often deemed musically inferior to the Jamaican one, there are some wonderful tracks included here, particularly on the pop side of things, like Tony Nash's orchestrated "Keep On Trying," the Cimarons' "Check Out Yourself," Danny Ray's moving "Just Because," and the Marvels' "Touch Me Baby," which manages to suggest how the Supremes might have sounded had they abandoned Motown for reggae. There are a couple of missteps, like Gene Rondo's ill-advised reggae cover of the Allman Brothers' "Ramblin' Man," but the highs far outweigh the lows throughout the set. True reggae fanatics will treasure this anthology of rarities, while novice listeners may want to check out some of Trojan's other 49 box sets first.

Note: ++


In 1963, the flight from Jamaica to Toronto was 8 hours. Today it's 3 1/2. Countless people have made the dwindling journey over the years, but in the sixties and seventies there was a new breed of traveler: the finest ska, rocksteady, and reggae recording artists the West Indies have ever produced. We're talking Studio One, Treasure Isle, Trojan, and WIRL veterans Jackie Mittoo, Johnnie Osbourne, Wayne McGhie, Lloyd Delpratt, The Mighty Pope, Noel Ellis, Jo-Jo Bennett, and many more. Arriving in their new Canadian home, these talented singers, songwriters, musicians, and performers simply did what came naturally to them. One by one, they hit the studio and captured some of the hardest tunes this side of Kingston. Jamaica to Toronto: Soul Funk and Reggae 1967-1974, details this crucial sonic migration and stands tall as the second helping of Light In The Attic's new Jamaica to Toronto series, compiled by DJ/Canadian music historian Sipreano, along with Light In The Attic.

Springs in the air...there's magic everywhere....la.la.la.la.....anyone remember that song? Well it is springlike today and I've been out in my garden using the Christmas present which my son bought for me......a Wilkinson Sword Miracle Weeder. Now I don't want to appear ungrateful, but I had hinted long and hard for some Caleche perfume by Hermes so why I got a Miracle  Weeder is beyond me, a Miracle Worker  I could have understood as I'm in need of it, but a Weeder.....I was somewhat peeved I can tell you. But now I'm feeling the benefit of it. The Miracle Worker  ..oops sorry Weeder, is a device to stop people (particularly elderly people, as my son obviously sees me) having to bend and use a trowel. The device is something like a pogo stick, indeed that's what I thought it was at Christmas!! It's about 2/3ft high with a bar ...
