Reggae artist Moses I, one of the original founders of the Rastafari Musical Collective, David House Crew, has released an interrogative new track, titled “Reparation.” The artist who travels back and forth between his homes in Kingston, Jamaica and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, recorded the song last July in his own Livon Music Production Studio (based in Fort Lauderdale).
According to Moses I, the song came about because he wanted to help to eradicate the division, as it relates to reparation, that has been, and continues to be an issue in some black communities. He firmly believes that a nation divided against itself is a weak one, as such, this song is meant to shed some light on this problem in the hopes that it will be amended.
“Reparation” is on the Ironstorm & Livon Music Production labels; with production credits going to the Home Bred Band for the actual rhythm, David Rowe for arrangement and Roland McDermot for mixing and mastering, which was done at Tuff Gong Studio.
When asked what he would like people to take away from this song, Moses I said the following: “I would like people to understand that many things can be accomplished with unity, and upon gaining that knowledge, I would like for them to achieve a greater purpose and find positive direction in life.”
