The album will be out under the well known Bizzarri Records label and will be distributed by Self Distribution.

One year ago Lion D left for Shengen Studio in Kingston, Jamaica where he spent several months working side by side with one of the most famous reggae producers in the world: Alborosie.

“HEARTICAL SOUL” unites the talent of two excellent Italian artists who have combined their great passion for music and for reggae, creating an explosive cd with a very ‘Jamaican’ sound, made of twelve brand new tunes and of a dub version, too.

The album is entirely produced by Alborosie, who, both took care of the artistic production and played drums, base, keyboards and guitars in almost all the songs and who involved in this project. Some of his best musicians: Tony Tarantino and Dave “Fitzroy” Green and Sid Gaetani of Bizzarri’s crew.

A work paying tribute to Roots Reggae, moreover the presence of one of the great artists of world reggae scene as Ken Boothe can only strengthen this theory.

Other artists featuring in “HEARTICAL SOUL” are Mr Vegas in “Jamrock Nice” and the outstanding voices of Kemar Williams and Sandy Smith in “Rude Bwoy Thing” and “Talk About Love”, next single to be released very soon.

‘Heartical Luv’, Ruff inna Town’ and ‘Blaze Up’ are the first three singles anticipating the release of ‘Heartical Soul’, the new album due to be released on Bizzarri Records.

Loving Lion D vibe! Some great dub style and many collaborations on the album; our fav being the one ft. Alborosie.  Check it and bless it family!

The Bee Leaf Book Launch

The Bee Leaf Book Launch

20150924_184003

–Review by Sharon Wickham

The Bee Leaf, is a ground breaking coming of age book that has incorporated layers of authentic metaphors that relate to mother and daughter relations during that transitional time into womanhood.

A time where a mother and a daughter can grow ill relations just because a mother wants to shelter her daughter or when daughters can rebel simply to define their independence, The Bee Leaf teaches how to allow our daughters to graciously step out in self confidence as young women.

The Bee Leaf hones an intricate symbolic colourful collage of art images thoughtfully created by Toronto Native author and illustrator Karee Shea Walker. Karee has purposed to use empowering West African symbols of Adinkra that stimulate self knowledge that represent and educate a stringent African family values.  It would be great to see a male chapter of this book as it shifts the general perspective of coming of age and strategically demonstrates the value of the Village that aid in the development of our children into young adults.

I recommend this book for all parents with daughters that are of African descent. The Bee Leaf is a literary artistic masterpiece that belongs on the coffee table of every home. Saturday September 26th be a part of the celebration of The Bee Leaf book launch.
