    One of Reggae music's emerging gems is an artist named Asadenaki! Continuing a rich musical legacy he inherited from his father who also gave him his unique name, which means "enigma", he is a singer, songwriter, composer, percussionist, guitarist and a Dj. Asadenaki was also trained in film and video production at Clayton State University in Georgia, USA. He likes to describe himself as "a creator inspired by The Creator". 

      

    Asadenaki was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica in the historic house of Solomonic Productions, the home office of his father and was always surrounded by music. He is the son of ska, rocksteady and reggae pioneer Bunny Wailer. In his early years however, he was more fascinated with sports, mainly football (soccer) and was a part of the Meadow Brook High School football team for one year. He moved to the USA to live with his mother after the tragic murder of his caretaker, original member of The Wailers, Junior Braithwaite in Kingston. In the USA he joined DeKalb School of Arts, a performing arts high-school which led to his training in music and media. He also played football and received a college scholarship. During university he wrote a lot of lyrics as he was trying to understand life and express himself, eventually giving in to his true calling. While working with his sister Cen'C Love on her album "Love Letter" in the family's home studio he was able to sharpen his music skills.

    When he returned to Jamaica his musical mission had begun. He joined forces with Yezer Root a 'yanter', bassist/guitarist and keyboardist and also Narry Berry form "The Tuff Gang". With this newly created group, Asadenaki developed his singing and performing skills while holding the ever-important rhythm-guitar section in the band. In July 2015 “Asadenaki and The Tuff Gang” released their debut EP entitled "Freedom Seeds". This led to performances at Jamnesia, Inner City Dub, Sankofa Sessions, Bob Marley Trenchtown Concert, Peter Tosh Memorial Concert, Wickie Wackie Music Festival, Bourbon Beach and The One Love Concert series in Negril, Jamaica.


    Stepping out as a solo artist was a natural development for Asadenaki and is driven by his deep love for music ranging from his native Ska, Rocksteady, and Reggae to the influences of Hip-Hop, R&B, Country and Soul inspired by the wise teachings of his ancestors. He loves all aspects of music, from playing instruments, producing, singing, songwriting to disc jockeying. Known affectionately as a 'Music Man', he can be heard spinning tracks, toasting and entertaining a loyal, growing group of followers in Jamaica and worldwide or his weekly "Culture Classics" radio show on RJR94FM, Jamaica's world re-known radio station. Asadenaki's love and passion for music are highlighted in his creatively poetic lyrics reminiscent of Super Cat paired with the soulful sounds of The Wailer’s aimed at uplifting and empowering his audience. His love for music and movie production can be also seen in his short movie INITIATION on YouTube.

     

    With new music ready for release, he intends to share his brand of reggae with lyrically charged messages of unity, self-awareness and diligence with the souls of music lovers across the world. His label “Tuff Gang Collective” is an ancestral call, a reclaiming of a heritage, for him and the Wailer’s family of “Tuff Gong”. Through divine guidance from the Most High, ASADENAKI aims to empower the masses and sing for peace, justice and equality through Word, Sound, Power!

    If we really want to know who Delphine is we have to go back in time. Back to the year 2011.

     

    That year some well known song writers wrote ten or so pop-groove songs for her and she was about to sign a contract with major music label. After some thinking and considering she knew that this is not her path and that she didn't want to be just another singer. The only option for her was her biggest passion, reggae music. In 2012 she decided to join Marcel Sawuri’s and Tony Nephtali’s band as a backing vocalist and at the same time she sang with “57 Roots Band”. She will always be faithful to this band. Three musicians from this band are still members of the team and have written for “Blue Soul”. Very quickly Delphine started writing her own songs with Tony Nephtali. The duo performed either in acoustic or were backed up by Hotta Faya Band in France, Belgium, Italy, Luxemburg and Germany for about 200 concerts including many first opening parts: Pierpoljak, Culture, Clinton Fearon, Tonton David, Amsterdam Klezmer Band, Anthony B, Richard Bohringer, Sir Samuel, Roman Electric Bandand Yaniss Odua…Early in 2014 she decided to start a solo career and to write her own self-produced album. She was supported in her project by all the people who had been following and encouraging her for years and who precisely know and understand all about the musical universe she wants to offer.

    "In order not to waste time, be efficient and do what I like, I preferred taking over everything" she said.

    She wanted the best musicians and engineers from France or abroad even if she had to go to London, United States or Jamaica. She borrowed money and invested most of her wages in this project, her efforts, patience and hard work paid off. In the process of creating her first album she learned and discovered a lot about music industry. In September 2015 or as she likes to say on September 12th 2015 at 2:00 pm precisely she decided to send her song "Music" to Tuff Gong International with a detailed presentation of her project and work. Days passed to weeks, weeks to month and there was no answer. She continued her project and the production of her album when one day, the right-hand of Cedella Marley sent her this short message: "I love it!" And her album "Blue Soul" was born. "Blue Soul" is rich with Delphine's experiences, her long singing history and her pop, blues, soul and reggae vibes. During this long road she became friends with many musicians and other artists, but her goal has never changed. To become a real profesional singer.

    "I think people can get to know much about me when they listen to this album" she says.

    She signed a contract for the album "Blue Soul" with Tuff Gong International who is in charge for digital distribution around the globe and the promotion of the album in the USA and the Caribbean. As an "active artist" Delphine wanted her album to be sold in France and she did that with the help of BS World and Quart de Lune in March 2017.

    Eurlando Kwesi Ontonio Williams, also known as Hiya Flames was born on July 13, 1991. He grew up with his grandmother in Kingston, Jamaica. His grandmother taught him important values and life principles that are incorporated in his daily lifestyle.

     

     

    His spirit for entertainment was noticed at a young age. He was brought up in the district of Waltham Park on Crescent road where he attended the Crescent Road Basic School. He then moved on to The St. Peter's Claver Primary and then advanced to Denham Town High School where he took education as a serious priority. But his involvement in music began when he was just a child. He travelled with a sound system owned by his family named Agony Disco across Kingston. Watching his eldest cousin Nero Marshall singing on the sound system, his involvement in music was inevitable. The name Hiya Flames comes from one of his musical brothers named Hotta Flame whom he respects very dearly. Hiya Flames left Kingston in 2006 along with his family to the parish of Clarendon where he connected with other friends with musical minds and talent.

     

    He recorded his first two songs with his musical brothers Hamma One and Radish as a collaboration. Soon he and others started Nik-y Production where he recorded great music, developed and generated his musical skills. Hiya Flames recorded a number of song also for Fire Royal Records. He sees Rastafarian as a true way of life to express himself positively throughout his lifestyle and music.  The great ones who walked this musical road before taught him about one god, one aim, one destiny. Brain power is the main power. Acknowledging his African roots Hiya Flames changed his legal name from Eurlando to Wondo In 2002. The inspiration of Rastafari lead him to acknowledge that music is here to motivate the mind of the people and strengthen them mentally. Hiya Flames always creates his music with true integrity and great determination to share his message with reggae community, following Rastafarian guides. Or as he would say:

    "Jah Jah H.I.M. a guide we, he stand beside me, he shineth the light."

    Mark Andrew Thompson, better known as Mark Wonder was born in Kingston, Jamaica but grew up in the city of Manchester in England. If the name Wonder associates you with another musician, you are probably right. His surname was "borrowed" from a giant pop icon of the 80s, Stevie Wonder, his favorite singer.

    His first recording of music began in the late eighties. His musical talent and love for the music came from his mother, who loved singers of soul music. To this, Mark only added his natural talent and combined genres of Jamaican legends such as Denis Brown and Bob Marley. This combination has proven to be pure gold! Soon he became one of Jamaica's most promising singers and musicians. The first songs were released in 1988 including the legendary "Caution", "Girl I Like Your Style" and "We Rule", which he recorded for producer named Mauricio "Jack Scorpio 'Johnson, better known as Black Scorpio sound system. Soon also for King Jammy, Blue Mountain and Trinity Records. His musical career got a new twist when he was introduced to producer Milton Moore in the nineties, by the dub poet DYCR. His amateur singing has today evolved in to almost 30 years lasting career.

     

     

    His first album "Signs Of The Times" was released in 1996 for Dutch label Zola & Zola. Until today, Mark Wonder already released nine albums and more are still to come! He has collaborated with many renowned artists such as Sizzla, Capleton, Luciano, Gentleman... From his first album on, Mark Wonder was proclaimed as one of those artists, who would fill the gap that the great Garnett Silk left behind. Although his singles and the "Jeremiah" album established him in the music industry, he thinks his newest work will actually 'Break The Ice' for Mark Wonder and make him a household name wherever roots reggae is enjoyed.

    His incisive texts that speak of contemporary issues in Jamaica and around the world, and songs with titles like "So Much War", are rapidly gaining new fans who think the same. Frequent traveling throughout Europe, particularly in Switzerland and the Netherlands have helped him to open his mind and realize the things that he never would have thought before. He says that he found many like-minded people in Europe who oppose the system in the same way as he did and is still doing it. He remembers that once in Rome he met people who were thrilled when "Rasta" criticizes the Pope. Wonder says that the roots music is popular in Europe for many years now between the rebels and people who think as him, while acknowledging that Shaggy and Sean Paul greatly expanded the reggae network, because you can see a lot of influence and love for dancehall music as well.

     

     

    With his universal style of music and voice, it is difficult to be still at his performances. When you hear his songs, you cannot resist and you quickly start dancing to the rhythm or sing along with the melody. The positive energy that he creates on stage is addictive and you will quickly catch everybody enjoying his concert. The fact is that every true fan of reggae music can only smile with excitement when Mark Wonder comes through his town and that joy we will soon be able to experience at club ZOO in Ljubljana, Slovenia!
