OLDIES SUNDAY: Judy Mowatt – Black Woman (1977)


In recognition of Women’s History Month, we take the time out to feature Women who have made great contributions to our music culture. While we celebrate the Women all year over here, we recognize some through our Oldies Sunday section. Today we close off the month, and our selection comes from a Woman who has made great strides, the legendary Judy Mowatt with “Black Woman“!

Produced by Judy Mowatt and Geoffrey Chung and released through Ashandan Records in 1977, this is one of Mowatt’s most important songs as she promotes, loves, and pays tribute to the Black Woman, and her pride and immense strength. The Black Woman has experienced and endured so much, and Judy’s song has gone on to be more than a tribute, but a song that has lived through generations, and inspired many. “Black Woman” is featured on Mowatt’s 1979 album of the same name, which is another important feat for her as she was recognized as the first Jamaican female recording artist who took on the role of producing the album in its entirety. Since the release of “Black Woman”, Judy Mowatt has gone on to become a legendary artist with various releases, and also became the first female artist to be nominated for a Reggae Grammy in 1985. As we close off the month, may we continue to celebrate the Women, and most importantly, protect them.

Thank You Judy Mowatt!

REVIEW: @Protoje’s “For The Culture” Event + Highlights


The Hope Gardens Shell Bandstand served as the perfect backdrop to showcase some of Reggae’s young royals to an eager audience of Locals and Tourists all with one thing in common…a love for the Culture. I personally gave up on Music in Jamaica until I came across these new school of Reggae Royals who through their socially conscious offerings, give honour to the many men and women who preceded them in the genre…

The gates opened at 7:30 Pm and the DJ for the night Yaadcore kept the early patrons entertained on the turntables, and DJ Jimmy Q of NewsTalk 93 FM handled hosting duties. By 9 Pm, the venue was almost full and the show kicked off with the opening act Sevana. Featuring cuts off her Sevana EP and even debuting a new song and a remix to Protoje’s “Love Gone Cold” (she was featured on the original), she had the audience mesmerized as she belted out tune after tune. I still refused to believe she did all that on a sore throat (Editor’s Note: She’s my Hero!!). By the time ZJ Sparks gave Protoje & The Indiggnation the greatest introduction ever, the venue was packed with patrons who were eager to sing and dance along with them.
