One Vibe Africa Presents: Year Of Return (Trailer)

From the U.S. back to Kenya. Yes indeed.

You KNOW we are about travel abroad (e.g. from The States to overseas destinations). But this one hits home. As in Mother Africa, being home to ALL humanity and civilization. And this… this is epic. Of course, you know plenty of Sisters and Brothers who have declared that ‘one day’ they are going to make that pilgrimage back Home. Making it a big deal; maybe ‘too big’ a deal. But what if that ‘pilgrimage’ was less of a ‘trip’ to take. Like, let’s just say the family, the homies, the homegirls… are going to make it to an awesome event… and take in some of The Motherland while over that way. We could do that, right? We already do it for other festivals.

And like those other festivals, maybe we make it a yearly thing; or trips more often if we find things over there that draw us back.

Moving Madaraka Festival from Seattle back to Kenya signified the importance of not only arranging for individuals to travel back to Africa as it was with the case of Ghana’s year of return initiative, but getting significant events back to Africa and keeping them in Africa as a way to build a sustainable bridge allowing people of all backgrounds to travel to Africa to enjoy a festival of a lifetime, immerse themselves in the African culture, and inspire global change and collaboration towards mitigating climate change, which does not only threaten the climate but is an existential threat to our music, culture, and livelihood.

Dope music and culture do it again. Let’s get together; for the community and the cause. It’s a Vibe. One Vibe Africa! Matter of fact, why not show love and SUPPORT right now: Cop the EP (linked below) #ForTheYouth #ForKisumu #ForKenya #ForOurWorld

Hit the jump for more on that. The fam Mazzi really blessed with the knowledge on this one. Knowledge and blessing right to mobile #Mobilize

The Land of No Men: Inside Kenya’s Women-Only Village (Video)

Where the foothills of Mount Kenya merge into the desert, the people of Samburu have maintained a strict patriarchy for over 500 years in northern Kenya. That is, until 25 years ago, when Rebecca Lolosoli founded Umoja village as a safe haven for the region’s women. Umoja, which means “unity” in Swahili, is quite literally a no man’s land, and the matriarchal refuge is now home to the Samburu women who no longer want to suffer abuses, like genital mutilation and forced marriages, at the hands of men.

VICE Broadly’s Michelle De Swarte visited Umoja (and the villages it inspired to also start their own women-only societies) to meet with the women who were fed up with living in a violent patriarchy.

Russian Interview (Producer/Artist)

This morning we talk to Russian the lead producer from Head Concussion Records and we find out how this ‘young-aged’ man has managed to stay in the league of successful professionals in Jamaica. He tells us about dealing with local artists trying to get signed to the label, the beginning of becoming an artist himself which included voicing a combination with Konshens. Russian credits the work ethic of himself and Vybz Kartel for their success thus far and salutes the other producers in the reggae industry who are also helping to keep ‘Reggae’ alive just as much as Dancehall.

Bling Dawg Interview x Jah Prince ‘Sunsplash Mix Show’

Bling Dawg Interview

This week we talk with Bawse Dawg, aka Bling Dawg aka Ricky Rudie, about his career and ability to change with the times but keep the original ‘rrrrrrrrrrrr’ tone in his delivery. We discuss his distinct cadence and Jamaican rap style that is unique to him from the 1990’s. He explains the motivation behind the creation of his own label ‘Dawg House’, voicing new riddims with fellow artists yet also the good/bad about being a solo agent in the Dancehall industry. We also get a snippet of his new track with Peetah Morgan, and Bounty Killa was the first to voice on this new riddim! Next interview we’ll ask if he’s rolling with Team Celtics or the Miami Heat?

Ajrenalin Interview

The Full Ajrenalin Interview with JahPrince :: “Sunsplash Mix Show”

We take the time and talk to Ajrenalin about his youthful insight on the Jamaican Dancehall genre, his career and working with other artists. I noticed his dedication to new styles and also uptempo flows. His team does support his future movements while he shows much respect to those who set the pace before him. He didn’t tell us exactly which football team he supports but its all good, we know who they be!

Christopher Martin – “Cheaters Prayer” (Don’t Get Caught) [Video]

A good song that gets a good video to match it. Chris Martin just coming back from another performance in Kenya, gets to ride the wave off this song off the Cardiac Strings Riddim produced by CR203 Records. Check the storyline and the theme, ‘not the first and not the last, look how much pretty girls a pass’, ‘please don’t let me cheat on my girl-friend’. I like the small detail at the very end of the video too..Hahaaa!

Mr Vegas – Bruck It Down (Video)

Another vivid and high quality video showcasing the dancing and fun that Dancehall music brings to the world. Mr Vegas is no stranger to this tempo of music and as the video displays, women love to get that One-Hour-Workout on as they listen. The song was released on iTunes in July but the wait is now over, GET A CHAIR AND CLICK REPLAY!.
