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
