Braveheart, Jamaica Ragga Dancehall on the Parisian scene
Jamaica to Paris, his warrior carries a message of love and unity
Like many artists, Brave Heart, speaks little of him. It engages sparingly and modestly. The underground artist, is one of the most talented national Ragga Dancehall scene. Yet surprising paradox, Brave Heart remains little known to a wide audience. He stands in the shadows, away, discreet, humble, bright, so inhabited by Rastafarianism he has no intention of being recognized, revered, sacred to the height of his talent.
The Jamaican Ragga Dancehall artist of the Parisian scene never departed from his calm. On the angelic patience, Brave Heart goes straight to the point. Concise, punchy and engaged in daily life as in his texts, including the flood reminds Sizzla, with whom he has long worked.
Brave Heart, tell me what led you to make music, specifically reggae?
I grew up with music all around me, I always sang in school. My friends always told me that it sounded good, so I ended up taking them literally and seriously.
Who are the artists that have inspired you?
So much to mention but a few: Ini komoze, Sugar Mimott, Sizzla ... Otherwise, people around me and the things that happen in my life. Reggae is a spiritual music, which broadcasts a message of love and unity, which I deeply believe. Philosophy "I and I" Rastafari teaches a way of life and especially the ability to always be able to adapt to changes. Whatever the changes, the Rastaman remain positive in all circumstances and faithful to the values of peace, justice and equity.
What do you think of the condition of a reggae artist in France and in Europe in general?
Although many think that reggae is dying, I think that on the contrary it is in full flight. In most European countries, reggae is played, heard, celebrated. There are more and more artists who choose reggae to express themselves. For my part, I am just focused on the "business" side of music.
Would you say that the Reggae music has good exposure in the media? The music industry is in crisis for the past few years, is it more difficult for a reggae artist to live?
As I said a moment, money is not my priority. I defend my music and I try to give my audience more strength and confidence to resist, survive in this world, where Babylon tightens increasingly its grip on the oppressed and the poor. My lyrics are weapons and shield against this unbearable condition. Otherwise, yes, of course I need to be more visible in the media. Like many of us, I think.
Can you tell me your songs that you recommend to listen to all of your repertoire?
I'm so ... To name a few: "Real love" "Guiding Light" "Coming in hot" and the title available for listening. In conclusion, I would like to thank Blasting news for this moment of exchange.
