Roots, Reggae & Dub Artist

Who is Sistah Jahia?

Sistah Jahia is an Afro-Caribbean Reggae, Roots and Dub singer who speaks in Creole, English and French. Through her conscious and committed texts, she affirms

its Faith in Jah Rastafari, advocates Universal Love and claims its African origins.

On stage, she is on a mission, Haile Selassie I is her Guide and her voice, a Weapon.

It was in high school that she wrote her first texts, recorded her first titles and chose her spiritual name: Sistah Jahia.

 

“The Key to happiness, it’s up to you to seek it deep in your heart. » (Zion - Sistah Jahia).

 In 2010, a trip to Africa brought her back to music and it was at this moment that she became aware of her mission and returned to writing. This desire to share positive vibrations in music will lead her to meet activist artists of French-speaking Reggae such as the Dub poet, singer and storyteller Sista Caro who will put her in contact with the Guadeloupean Producers/Composers Killah from Asham Studio and Jekel from Konka Prod with whom she will release the titles #FemmeDeCouleur and #OhJahJah. This collaboration will allow her to work with Dr Ls Liberty Prod for whom she will record several titles including #Mawon (available in a semi-acoustic version on the album Nyahbinghi).

She will prove herself in the Parisian Dub scene by accompanying Sound System such as Positive Vibration, I Love Sound or Roots Meditation, she will make recordings for productions such as Ragga Dub Force (Title: Settle Down), Seedness Record and I Love Sound (Title: Zion Man), 6TMD Prod (Night & Day), etc. In 2012, back in Guadeloupe, she will continue to sing Reggae, and many active members of the Reggae community evolving on the island will support her in this approach such as Tiwony, Ras Abbya (from the group Freedom Fighters) or even Asaliah Gad (Jahlawa Foundation ) and Selecta Manworks.

She will do several Live scenes like the first part of Little Guerrier (Guyana),

of Sizzla Kalonji (Jamaica), the Rasta Market of Saint-Pierre (Martinique), the Marley Marathon (Martinique), the Trafalgar Reggae Festival (Dominica).

Sistah Jahia's first album, titled Nyahbinghi, was released on December 22, 2022 in digital and USB format. To date, Sistah Jahia has been able to present this album in Guadeloupe, Martinique and Dominica, she will open for Danakil and Queen Omega next October and December, then follow a European tour organized for the start

of December 2023, as well as other dates planned for the year 2024
