Roots- Consciousness- Rastafari Power-

Malika Madremana and the Greensphere Band are proud to bring to the West Coast a new summer reggae tour that is taking the industry and crowds by surprise….

Malika Madremana is a Puerto Rican sista from New York who has been singing, recording, and performing roots music for the past decade. She has toured with such legends as Apple Gabriel of Israel Vibration, the Mighty Diamonds, and Kymani Marley. She has sung backgrounds for esteemed artists like Bushman, Yami Bolo, Ras Shiloh, Wadi Gad, Ras Attitude, Batch, Groundation, and Roots Natty. Her debut album Healing, released in 2005, is one of the reggae genre’s best kept secrets and is well-loved and respected on the underground scene.

Malika’s newest release entitled “Elixir” is fresh out of production. The CD was produced by Alan “Eaygee” Gordon, AKA Blaaklung, out of Greensphere records. This new CD contains 16 tracks of conscious roots, rockers, and dancehall riddims played by living legend musicians such as Batch, Tuff Lion, Vince Black, Blaaklung, and Kenyatta Itola. The tracks are smooth yet militant; soothing yet radical; and the music is blessed with a vintage, yet eternal spirit.

The live stage show is on fire. Malika has teamed up with the Greensphere band, a group of talented Oakland-based musicians who have livicated themselves in the struggle to produce quality roots music. The band consists of both veteran and new talents who when combined produce a sound that is taking the Bay Area reggae fans by storm.


 



 

In addition to the powerful impact Malika Madremana presents live, she is joined by one of the industry’s most in-demand young artists rising from St. Croix- Ras Attitude. Ras Attitude guest appears on the Elixir CD, and Malika will be featured on his upcoming CD release out of Greensphere Records as well. His reputation precedes him- Attitude is highly recognized as one of the most talented songwriters, singers, and performers of the time. His talents will also be featured as a part of the Elixir 2007 tour.

Many reggae fans express a desire to hear and support the female artists in the reggae field; however there are not many sistren who are given high opportunities for performing and spreading Jah message. The Elixir tour will inspire, educate, and move all those fortunate to be involved. It’s not just a show; it’s a living experience that connects people with the Most High, His power, and His message.

Malika and the band are available for booking currently.
