Jamaica’s Most Lyrical Female Artist Releases Video Saluting Real Rastafarians

2
Karamanti, the woman many refer to as the most lyrical female in Dancehall, has just released the official video for her single FAKE RASTA. The song was released last year by Range Hill Records on the popular Rock Island Riddim (distributed by Zojak Worldwide) which also features the likes of Demarco and Jah Vinci.   Karamanti’s song questions the lifestyle of many who say they are Rastafarians while simultaneously engaging in practices and belief patterns that are contrary to traditional African lifestyle. While doing so, it also pays respect to the few authentic Rastafarians who are still locked on to ancient African cultures and traditions.    The video for FAKE RASTA was shot entirely in Kingston, Jamaica with only one or two scenes taken from Karamanti’s most recent tour in Denmark. Though it was directed by Karamanti, all scenes were shot by MJE and editing was done by Ramon Lindsay. The video can be viewed on Karamanti’s channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSuH39bSAEs   Anyone wanting to work with Karamanti may contact her management team via her website at www.karamantimusic.com

On Sunday May 3rd at the Sound Table, I had the great pleasure of hosting another installment of Rocksteady, Atlanta’s only thriving roots reggae monthly event. Internationally renowned hit-making reggae singer Anthony Malvo and his lyrical dancehall deejay compadre Little Twitch of King Jammys Super Power Hi Fi and King Sturgrav Sound System fame made a live appearance, performing together for the first time in years! This was also the very first feature for Little Twitch in the ATL. malvo-twitch

The energetic audience was transported back in time by nostalgic selections drawn from resident DJ Passport and special guest DJ Jah Prince of the Sunsplash radio mix-show and Smokin’ Needles Records. The stage and tone was set for me to play a few more songs and then call in the artists who escalated things from there like the true veterans they are.

This audio portion features Malvo and Twitch in combination as I spin the riddim tracks. It was a joyous occassion in which new listeners were given an authentic taste of what dancehall reggae has to offer since the 1980s, while veteran skankers were provided with a mouth-watering feast of vibes for their own consumption.

The full audio from Rocksteady May 3rd 2015 featuring Jah Prince is available for download via my soundcloud page.
