Mit ‘Alborosie’ getaggte Beiträge

Just found this article about a Panel Discussion entitled “Escaping Roots of Extending Consciousness” that happend two days ago at the Liberty Hall in Downtown Kingston via soundclash.wordpress.com.

Last night at Liberty Hall in downtown Kingston there was a panel discussion entitled “Escaping Roots of Extending Consciousness”. The panelists were Terry Lynn, a Jamaican artist who has found inspiration in European electronic music, as well as Alborosie and Gentleman, European artists who have found inspiration in Jamaican music. Carolyn Cooper moderated the discussion, which had been organized by the folks behind the upcoming documentary Journey to Jah(it’s a film about the aforementioned Europeans and their connection to Jamaica).

The conversation was pretty interesting, with all three artists describing how they got their respective starts in music and how they feel that they’ve found their right outlet/niche. Terry Lynn spoke eloquently about the struggle for women in reggae and dancehall–she acknowledged a desire to talk about sex and relationships, but questioned why that has to be the main focus of a woman’s lyrics. After all, she said, women head up the first institutions of the world–families–so women have a fair bit of insight on everything from finance to fairness.

Head over to Soundclash to read the whole story.

Dellé, one of the three Seeed Frontmen, just covered the old Frankie goes to Hollywood Hit „The Power of Love“ on the Hooded Claw Riddim, which was produced by cologne-based musician Guido Craveiro.

And because the Riddim is really great, it got voiced by Alborosie, Luciano, Louie Culture, Gyptian and Doctah Chando too.

Please check the Megamix!
