About Me

This is my perspective
on the
Golden Years
... to which I have arrived:

Like Vintage Wine

I am aged to perfection
and resemble a cultered pearl.

A diamond refined,
I have been tested
by life's blazing
and now the facets
of my beauty
...shine.

Like tempered steel
I stand for truth,
and with the delicate
whisper of a butterflies'
wings,

I touch with love.

I am a woman made
majestic by the passing
of time, malleable
and shaped by God's
own hand...
...and like vintage wine

I am aged
to
::..perfection..::

I love God, people,
and, (you guessed it)
~Music~ Originally from Chicago,
I am the proud mother of 4
and beaming grandmother of 9.
I'm a Lady DJ and always striving to improve ...
I love sincerity and inner-beauty, as well.
I love life.

Ijahman Levi (born: Trevor Sutherland) has been on the cutting edge of Jamaica's music for more than four decades. While his 1985 duet with his second wife, Madge, "I Do," remains his best known tune, reaching the top position on the British music charts, Levi has continued to influence reggae and ska vocalists with his eclectic approach and songs of spirituality, love and humanity. Educated to the high school level in Kingston, Levi was mentored by vocal teacher Joe Higgs. Recorded his first single, "Red Eyes People," under the guidance of Stranjah Cole for Duke Reid Productions, at the age of thirteen. Shortly after moving with his with his band, Vibrations, which he formed in 1965, Levi became a regular performer at the Q club. After the group's disbanding, he formed Youth And Rudie And The Shell Shock, with which he performed until launching his solo career, as Youth, in 1966. Courted by several record companies, Levi recorded singles for Polydor in 1967 in 1967 and Decca in 1968. Levi's career was temporarily stilled when he was arrested in 1970 a sent to prison for three years. While imprisoned, he assumed the name of Ijahman Levi and wrote the classic tune, "Jah Heavy Lord." Released from prison in 1974, Levi found refuge at the house of Rastafari at the St. Agnes Place headquarters of the Twelve Tribes. Much of his time was spent studying the Bible. In 1975, Levi recorded "Jah Heavy Lord" for the Concrete Jungle subsidiary of Dip Records. Singing on Rico Rodrigues' album, Man From Warika, for the Island label, Levi was signed to a recording contract by the label's owner Chris Blackwell. His two albums on Island -- Haile I Hymn, released in 1978, and, Are We A Warrior, released in 1979 -- were produced by late Jamaican producer Geoffrey Chung. Following the success of the two albums, Levi left Island and formed his own label, Tres Roots Records International", in 1980.

The following year, he married his second wife, Madge. Ijahman remained active in the 1990s. In 1991, he performed at the Zimbabwe Sunspalsh. Five years later, he was invited to the Gambia state house as a special guest of President Jammeh. ~ Craig Harris, All Music Guide


REVIEW
"A We a Warrior" is truly an overlooked gem for the waning years of roots reggae's Golden Era. With only five tracks on the entire album, Ijahman takes the opportunity to languidly suss out each tune to the fullest. Every song is at least five minutes long. Several of the cuts are nearly 8 minutes long and not a moment is wasted. The result is a mystical, lush, yearning, spiritual (The Church), and, yes, sexy (check Ms. Beverly) soundscape that is still phophetic and futuristic sounding nearly three decades after is original release. Ijahman sings as though he is truly possessed by a mystical muse.

The backing band on this album could easily be an allstar list of Jamaica's finest studio musicians of the era: They are nothing less than precise as they construct deep grooves that build upon and transcend the classic one-drop sound that was so (rightfully) pervasive at the time. There is a dark edge to Ijahman's spirituality and that's what makes this record exceptional.

This is not tourist Jamaican music, nor is it poppy or hippy-dippy reggae and there are no touchy, feelly, "everything is irie" (although the grooves are indeed deep) anthems here. The style, rythm and lyrics are unapologetically revolutionary, African and Rastafarian. This not to say that those who simply enjoy great music will be put off: Above all else, the music here is sublime and richly melodic. This ones for those who seek a deeper roots sound. "Are We a Warrior" is simply rare find, a unique record that takes the willing listener on a sonic quest in search of mystic revelations.

"The people have spoken," says Zimbabwe's new leader

"The people have spoken," says Zimbabwe's new leader By MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe's new leader Emmerson Mnangagwa told a cheering crowd in Harare on Wednesday that the country was entering a new stage of democracy following Robert Mugabe's removal as president after nearly four decades in power. Mnangagwa returned to the country earlier in the day, having fled for his safety when the 93-year-old former leader sacked him as vice president two weeks ago to smooth a path to the succession for his much younger wife Grace. The voice of the people is the voice of God," Mnangagwa told thousands of supporters gathered outside the ruling ZANU-PF party's offices in the capital.

Net neutrality repeal was decided after 'enormous numbers' of fake people sent messages of support for Trump administration

Net neutrality repeal was decided after 'enormous numbers' of fake people sent messages of support for Trump administration The profound and fundamental changes currently being made to the internet are being done partly on the basis of hundreds of thousands of fake people, according to New York's attorney general. This week, the Federal Communications Commission announced that it would repeal Obama-era protections that guaranteed net neutrality. Campaigners say that the move would allow internet companies to force people to pay for access to specific websites, for instance, or charge a fee if they want to download things at any speed.
