This is where she collected her first impressions of the life as a nomad. From birth on, wandering the earth became a part of her destiny. In the early nineties she undertook a huge step and immigrated to Sweden. The City of Gothenburg would become her adopted home from where she was able to access all the different destinies and directions, which were on offer to her.
Through all the borders Jaqee crossed, music has always been her steady companion whereas it never was a stereotype thing that let her get down with any special genre, than more like a special feeling. Sortie en avril chez VP records. Jackie brown " People of Today " :. Sojah " Babylon burn " :. SOJA en concert. Vous avez jusqu'au dimanche 28 juin minuit. For promoters or artists that happen to be reading this article, here are some minor ideas I feel would aid in bringing down ticket prices.
Promoters should ensure by means of contract artists understand that they are paying them for their services and not for either an entourage that travels with them or some of their more unreasonable demands. This is one way to reduce cost, so that fans do not have to fork out the current outrageous cover charges. Conscious decisions need making with regards to things like pricing stage shows and concerts.
We all want to support our national singers, reggae dancehall artists and others like them, but if a couple have to pay for example Not to say fans will lose the desire their to attend shows, but financially will not have the ability to attend, hence support is totally lost.
The ramifications of continuing as is , and this is only my opinion, is if ticket prices are not reduced accordingly, artists may find shows cancelled due to low ticket sales or worse find themselves having to play to virtually empty venues.
It is important to understand that not every Jamaican artist or artist per ce is as renowned as Marley, Heritage or Banton , that command the larger audiences and when promoters book the smaller artists albeit with some risk, they need in many cases more than one artist to draw in enough fans to make the show cost effective. Everyone will loose if the industry does nothing. The promoters will loose because they will not have the mass of people attending their event, and therefore will not be able to meet financial obligations to either artists, venues or indeed their personal portfolios.
Then the artist will loose because they will not get enough bookings to be able to sustain themselves and take care of their families; and finally the fans will loose because there will not be any shows for them to attend. Its time to work together, producers, artists and fans in order to keep the industry thriving not only in Jamaica but also globally. Lucian Jazz Festival next month folks, see you there! One Love. But it is her humanism and philanthropy which has kept you the readers coming back month after month for her articles.
We are always grateful for her contributions and we are all a little more connected to the World of music. John Holt started his prestigious career as lead singer of the Jamaican vocal group The Paragons, Mister Holt has cemented himself as one of reggaes leading romantic crooners.
He is the son of the veteran reggae singer Jimmy Riley, and there is no doubt he has not only followed in his fathers coveted footsteps, but stepped up the Riley status no end. I absolutely implore you to get on this album, you certainly will not regret parting with your money.
K'Naan Originates From Somalia In the past few months, select groups of African artists have made their way to the west, promoting either new releases or playing gigs.
In conversations held in hotel bars or over the telephone, they've discussed their relationships to tradition and to globalization, and their hopes for making music at home and for the diverse worldwide audience. Mahlasela's storytelling gifts and glistening tenor have gained him a cult audience around the world; he even performed at the world's most elite nerd-fest, the TED conference, in I don't need to project any identity because my skin and music tells it all.
Rokia Traore might agree. There are some schools for that, and I didn't have this chance to learn this music. It's about what you can do.
DC: Then what drives the music? FR: When you have a brilliant song it will take you far. Look at that guy PM Dawn. He's an incredible song writer and he could be black, green, purple or whatever, but his songs are brilliant and the audience stays invested because they love the songs. That's a gift from God, but also something that you can work on yourself. He mastered his craft. You have to listen to music, learn about the songs, figure out how they work. To me that's the key. I don't know what the industry is anymore, so to get caught up in "Oh they don't like us because were black, or why are they playing other people's music and not mine" is pointless even if all of that is true.
But they can't stop you from doing your music. They can't keep you from developing a fan base that comes out to support you on a regular basis. They can stop you from being number one, but who cares about that if you are number one to yourself, and producing and performing the music that is true to the artist that you are and the audience that supports your music.
All of the could've, would've, should've are excuses not to move forward. That works in any medium that you choose artistically. FR: Look at you. Your a filmmaker whose been told that you don't have the means, or support, or the finances to do this project, but you are doing it. It's your passion for wanting to tell this story that keeps you moving. That's the same thing that musicians need to cary with them. The passion to keep moving forward and perfecting their craft when no one else believes in it.
DC: Do you find it more satisfying than if you had a major music deal? FR: Of course I'd like like to have a recording contract. I think that people have to understand that there is a difference between fame and success. Once you understand that difference, then choose the path that suits you and move in that direction.
I've been going to music school recently and I've been studying and learning about other people that came before me. Currently, I'm studying jazz vocalist Betty Carter and her career, and how she put out her own records on her own label Bet-Car Records for years. This is back in the 60's and 70's. I listen to that music and the music was so beautiful. I mean it is just astonishingly beautiful, original and well crafted.
I saw an interview with her and she said she believed in working and doing her music. She worked up until she passed. DC: Do you think about a music deal for Faith? FR: Yes, a music label helps to offset the cost attached to promoting an artist, but there are consequences to having a deal with a label that doesn't believe in your vision for your music. It would be wonderful to have a relationship with a label that understands what you're doing, and to be able to work with people who are on the same page.
That may still happen for me and Faith, but I just want to work and let my fan base hear my music. My son will be graduating soon, and now I would like to tour and have our music heard in other arenas.
DC: You are singer, songwriter, and bassist. Tell me about your process of creating songs? FR: My music is more of a spiritual journey for me these days. I'm trying to express myself and share what I'm feeling and thinking in an honest way with my audience and hopefully they connect with it. Maybe they've had a similar experience and can relate to what I'm writing and singing about. There are songs that affect you and make you stop in your tracks.
It's not really a process as it is a journey of events that happen and unfold. DC: Tell me about the song "Lay me Down". FR: That song is a song about those times when we tend to repeat what's bad for us. It's a situation that's not really that good for you and you're wondering why you keep repeating the same mistake over and over. It's about a sad situation that I went through years ago, but I've come through it.
It's knowing when you see it coming to identify it and step aside to make the change, and not be afraid to make the change. Especially as Black women. We shoulder a lot of crap that is thrown our way and we have to empower ourselves to know that it's ok not to deal with it all. DC: Do you find it difficult as a black woman in the music industry? FR: I think that people will come to see you if it's about the music and our audience has been some of everybody.
I mean it's an interesting question to ask because I wouldn't know how else to do it because I am a Black woman. I don't know what a white man goes through in the industry because I'm not a white man. I can only follow my path. I feel that if we concentrate on the music, then the line is blurred and available for everyone to enjoy.
I want our music to get to the more regular people. A few years back we played in Prospect Park in Brooklyn, on a Sunday afternoon and it was great. Some of the people that came for the event were your trendy club goers, but then their were the regular folk with families that responded well to our music and had a great time. It was a refreshing sight for us because it was a different energy to vibe off.
It was nice and I want Faith to do more of that. That's what I'm working on. DC: What made you go back to school for music? It's a jazz school called the Jazz Mobile, located in Harlem and I'm in the classroom learning the fundamentals of music. The Jazz mobile is based on black music, and taking the mystery out of people like Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and Theolonius Monk. They're the names you've heard your whole life and now we're breaking down their music and learning how they contributed to the fabric of music in this country and globally.
I've really enjoyed being around my classmates and learning in the classroom where we all have something to contribute. They have a different attitude about music and to learn what they have to teach me has really been incredible. It's changed my whole perspective on music.
DC: You're an amazing musician already. Do you feel like it's elevated you some? FR: It's made me less afraid of going different places with my playing. Sometimes as a bass player I think if I stay right here an just keep playing this rift right here I'll be ok.
Being in school has made me take chances and move to other notes and see what happens. With Rock I find that the focus is on you, what you're doing, what you wearing, etc. With the Jazz Mobile, the focus is on the music. I've been taking private lessons from my bass instructor for a year and he doesn't want to know what kind of music I play, or my vision.
He just wants to know that I understand the music, teaching me to read music, training my ear, and that's it. He teaches you that music is bigger than you and the science of music.
It's so interesting and the journey to learn it is just amazing. I love things that are bigger than me that's where my interest are now. It's made me think about what I really want to say with my music and how I put it out.
DC: Are you self produced or attached to a label? FR: We put out our own records. DC: Do you consider yourself to be a Rocker? FR: Yes I'm a Rocker. That's who I am and how I came up. I go back to the music I listened to my whole life, and that's what has helped to shape and mold me. I love all music. DC: Who are some of the women coming up behind you that you listen to? FR: I love Ms. She's the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I love her. I like Ms. Honeychild Coleman who has an interesting presence and a sweet voice that I like. DC: What is it about Kamara Thomas? FR: Well Kamara Thomas is an amazing songwriter.
Her lyrics are powerful and transforming and the song takes you on a journey. She has two songs that I love an awful lot. DC: What advice would you give to the young women out there cutting their chops in the Rock scene. FR: I would tell them not to get caught up in things that don't matter. The only thing that matters is the music that you create and getting it out to the people that are your fans.
Create your own following and don't let others define who you are going to be and what you are going to create. If you do it right it will come. Felice Rosser is such an inspiration and I hope that you all give her some love here and at her personal websites:.
Here is a video of Felice performing:. To a musical Journey worth sharing,. Posted by Danni Conner at AM 1 comment:. Friday, February 26, Shelley Nicole's Blakbushe. I wish I would have been there to see Shelley Nicole's Blakbushe perform this past Thursday, for all of us who missed it, or were unable to get to New York, here is the performance. She is an amazing talent that we need to continue to support.
Shelley is an example of why we need to continue to support these fantastic women! Thursday, February 25, Mama Moon of Uninterrupted. Mama Moon is the lead singer for the band Uninterrupted which is comprised of Kenny on guitar, Ahmed on drums, and Big O on the bass.
The Maryland based band has been together for ten years and still loves what they do which is the gift of playing and performing their music. Moon's infectious love for her music is evident throughout the interview as she talks about the ups and downs of what she sees within the industry. As a wife, mother, band manager, promoter, and government worker, she still finds ways to make her dreams come true with her music.
Here's a little of that interview. MM: It's funny that you ask, because I was thinking of doing one myself. I thought if I did a doc it would show people exactly what I do as well as others. I wanted to try and help educate the audience on our form of music. My schedule became extremely busy so the time never permitted itself to follow thru.
Now here you are to do exactly what's needed. We need something like this to show that there are women out here that can Rock and hold their own just as well as men, and that our presence and sound are completely different. DC: How did you get started in performing and claiming Rock as your medium. MM: Growing up as a child my household was filled with all kinds of music.Jaqee (egentligen Jaqueline Nakiri Nalubale) född i Uganda.
