Yah Man Records, strictly from Salento, is out with the second production on “Express Love Riddim”.
We found Morello Selecta on bass guitar and three components of the Bag a Riddim (official band of Sud Sound System):
Fossa Drummer on drums, Papa Leo on guitar and Maestro Garofalo on keyboards.
On this riddim you can already listen and download “Smiling Faces” from Jamaican artist Blass,
available from the 10th of May on all digital stores. This time we’re glad to present the veteran British artist Sandra Cross.
She started singing at the age of 9 as a solo artist in the choir of Pentecostal Church where she belonged.
When she was only 14 she started to record her first songs with a friend in a group called Love & Unity.
“I adore you”, recorded in 76 Records studio, soon got famous for winning a popular British talent show.
Furthermore it was first on the Britian’s reggae chart for four weeks on 1979. What has really been crucial for her career was meeting Mad Professor,
well-known reggae- dub selector and owner of Ariwa Records. He choosed Sandra and formed a band of only female reggae singers called Wild Bunch.
Their album was in the Reggae Top 20 Chart. This is a great opportunity for Sandra to travel in Europe and to think about
his career again as a solo artist. A career that will be full of success, her single “Country Living” will be on top of the
British chart for ten weeks. She will win the British Reggae Award as best female artist for six years, from 1985 to 1991.
Her particular style that goes from reggae to jazz and a bit of soul, is extremely interesting.
And now, let’s listen her singing on Express Love Riddim, “Dancing the night away”.
