>The High Priestess : Aisha and Mad Professor at the controls
>Mixing & Remixing Live !
>Ariwa Sounds and Mad Professor continue their year-long 25th Anniversary
>celebration with a handful of rare US/Canadian West coast club appearances

>With Mad Professor (aka Neil Fraser) at the controls, a world-class
>reputation has been built for the best of Dub, Lovers Rock, and Roots & Culture reggae music. Boasting a back-catalogue of over 160 album releases and a mountain of singles over the last twenty five years, Ariwa has become Britain's most successful UK-produced reggae label.
>From humble 8-track home studio origins, Ariwa Studio has grown into a
>multiple 32, 24 and 16 track digital complex, with an seperate 24 track analogue studio equipped completely with original 1970's sound gear for an authentic revival sound with rooms for live multitrack recordings.
>Many of the UK's top established reggae names have built careers at Ariwa (Sandra Cross, Macka B, Kofi, Mad Professor, John McLean, Black Steel) whilst others have been welcomed at Ariwa at crucial career points (Carroll Thompson, Pato Banton, Tippa Irie, Peter Hunnigale, Papa "Phillip" Levi). Since the outset however, Ariwa has proved a "home away" for many of Jamaica's top artists, from Johnny Clarke and Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace in the early '80s through to Yabby You, Ranking Joe, Susan Cadogan and J.C. Lodge in the '90s.
>Particularly fruitful musical relationships have continued with reggae giants U Roy and Lee "Scratch" Perry, helping in part, towards their renewed critical and sales success.
>Ariwa Sounds' achievements have been paralleled by personal success for Mad Professor, whose own albums (20-plus and rising) sell consistently well across the world, with a subsequent, (exhausting) demand for live appearances. He has also re-shaped, in his own inimitable style, the work of artists, such as Massive Attack,Beastie Boys and Rancid .
>Born in 1967, Wolverhampton, England, Aisha - real name Pamela Ross - began singing at the tender age of eight. She built a significant following in and around the Midlands through her live performances. Instead of singing sweet, soulful covers of R&B hits, which is usually done by many reggae divas, she prefered to perform roots music from the very first moment. In the late 80s, Aisha teamed up with the Mad Professor and released Prophecy on his Ariwa Sounds label. This success led to other recording sessions with female vocalists, performing conscientious lyrics and culminating with the Roots Daughters series, in which Aisha featured alongside the revitalized Fabian, Kofi and Sandra Cross.
>Aisha is a very energetic performer, which made that she often received
>great critical acclaim for her accomplished performances, captivating audiences wherever she appears. Aisha continues to pursue a career based on her assertion that "music comes from the root of love",
