Karamanti Releases Powerful Motivational Video for her single “Don’t Give Up”

1

Karamanti has just released the official video for her single “Don’t Give Up,” recorded on the Missing Piece Riddim by Rhome Records.

00-don't give up

The Riddim also features Khago, Teflon and several other Jamaican artists and it was released in September of 2015 and distributed globally by 21st Hapilos Distribution.

“Don’t Give Up” is a motivational track that would be classified as Caribbean pop (though it has a very strong dancehall sound). A few scenes for the video were shot in Ontario, Canada, while others were done in Kingston, Jamaica. Unlike most music videos, “Don’t Give Up” does not have any actors, instead, real, everyday people were asked about their dreams, obstacles and determination, or lack thereof. After sharing their story, they were followed with a camera so that the public could get a glimpse into their struggles and their commitment to not giving up.

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

3
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

Global marketing/promotions group Irish and Chin, who specializes in Reggae/Dancehall entertainment, recently hosted two reggae songs versus one dancehall track on their weekly 45 clash competition. The competition allows the public to listen and vote for the song that they think is the best and should be the next big thing.

POSITIVE DANCEHALL BEATS REGGAE

The clash which ran from June 3rd to June 10th featured “One Bag A Reggae” by Ishabel (reggae), “Have You Lost Somebody” by Tydal (reggae) and “Pack Up & Run” by Karamanti (dancehall).

The public overwhelmingly voted for Karamanti’s “Pack Up & Run” which is to be the next single off her new album entitled Dancehall Retaliates. Karamanti is very pleased with the victory and says that this is confirmation that dancehall music can be just as positive as reggae.

“Read” by Karamanti #1 on Jamaica’s Roots FM Conscious Top 10

Every so often there comes a track that captures the attention of everyone that hears it in an inexplicable manner. Whether it is the message, the rhythm, or the flow, it simply has that it factor. Karamanti’s single “Read” is one such track.

As the name implies, the song speaks about the importance of reading and associates the degrading lyrics and images in music with the presenter’s ignorance. Since its release, the track has been getting favorable radio rotation both on the local and international scene.

In early October it entered the Conscious Top 10 chart which is featured on the program Intensity Friday, every Friday from 6pm -8pm on Roots 96.1 FM (in Jamaica). As of Friday, November 2nd, “Read” is sitting in the number one spot.
