      Dezarie (reggae) a Must Check!

      0 Not allowed! Not allowed!

      Dezarie new album, Eaze the pain is here!!!! i bought it from her webpage and i got it last week. I have not stopped playing it! its too good, just like the rest of her albums, the vocals are even better. You can listen to a couple of songs here VIROOTS | Dezarie

      If you dont know this artist you should google her. Not only does she sings like an angel but she speaks fya All the time. Well, let me add the lyrics for Gracious Mama Afrika, from her second album and the bio on her page (from when she relaesed her second album)

      Roots empress Dezarie has blessed the reggae community with the deliverance of her newest recording "Gracious Mama Africa". Released on the Afrikan Roots Lab record label, this album emerges from the seeds planted on her amazing debut album of 2001 "FYA".

      Gracious Mama Africa transports the incredible voice of Dezarie to a whole new level - the highest heights. Her foundation is firmly established in songs such as "Travelers" and the title track. The brilliance and clarity of Dezarie's voice is reverently unveiled on "Exhalt". Gracious Mama Africa abounds with pleas for social justice and racial equality with selections like "Poverty", "Strengthen Your Mind" and "Justice".

      But to this listener, the strength and power of Dezarie is most strikingly displayed in her condemnation of so-called civilization. "Gone Down", "Not One Penny", "Law Fe De Outlaw", "Slew Dem An Done" and "Judgment Come" all deliver conscious punches that penetrate the soul.

      "Do what you want, wheresoever you please. Bombing Vieques, yes your bombing the seas. Lock up anyone that was opposing. Speaking against the nonsense that you were doing. But babylon you gone down, you gone down. Babylon funeral, you gone down." - Dezarie

      After receiving Atlanta's "Best New Female Reggae Artist" award in 2001, Dezarie returned to her native island of St. Croix. Since that time, she has been working closely with Midnite, the players of instruments for "Gracious Mama Africa". Midnite's trademark sound is fully displayed on this album. Momentous bass lines from Phillip Merchant, classic one-drop from Dion Hopkins and the bubbling of Ron Benjamin on keyboards prevail throughout, accentuated by Abijah's charismatic guitar playing.

      From the excellent overdubs of Dezarie's voice to the flying symbols on "Slew Dem" it is evident that Ron Benjamin worked tirelessly in the production and mixing of this album. The fruits of this labour are eloquently displayed on Gracious Mama Africa which is sure to be one of the best roots albums of 2003.

      If is clear to we, the love that she perform ____
      Ina far land from the homeland we feel
      Providing man it's soul life
      Even though Babylon try to conquer I by
      Taking us away from the homeland
      Down to Sodom and Gomorrah ina the quicksand
      Many tricks and propaganda make you wonder
      Take risk fi find out what is really under
      Deh must question, nah fe ask 'bout where we come from
      And we will go back to where we belong
      Will we go back to where we belong

      What is an african-american,
      Cause if you a black, you're African and then done
      Amerigo Vespucci, a trick he done
      And that’s where the name America come from
      he ones responsibles for the death of many Indians and
      Africans, they raped our continent
      Out this contest is a contest
      Trading the greatest,
      Must valuable treasure, the human tool
      And you disrespect, you make all I soul
      And so you bring a judgment pon owna soul
      And we longing to go back home

      They called up this a land of opportunity
      But opportunity fe who you are we
      Without a majority of minority what could you be
      You only need us here to do your laboring
      In the sun toiling
      How great could a bloody city be
      When you did not earn your greatness fairly
      You thieve all your signs and symbols from Egypt
      Kemet, Abyssinia, India or Tibet
      Still we can forget

      The album "FYA" is incredible! Those you like reggae and don't know her just don't hesitate, she is a "black angel"!!

      And no matter what game they play
      We got something they could never take away
      And it's the fire (fire), it's the fire (fire)
      That's burning down everything
      Feel that fire (fire), the fire (fire)
      No water could put out this fire (fire)
