Episode 2: Woman Ah Come
When Protoje gathered four recording artistes and asked each one to sing a powerful song on a single vibesy riddim, reggae music fans were gifted with "Peace of Mind," "Haul & Pull," "Inspiration," and a fourth single that borrows its title from the riddim itself, "Rock & Groove."  But, when FOR POSTERITY gathered those same recording artistes -- Naomi Cowan, Sevana, Lila Iké, and Jaz Elise -- to talk about living life in the spotlight, what I experienced was a rich and nuanced conversation about being Jamaican women and “role models,” unapologetic self-expression in 2020, the chance to inspire individuality, taking time to recharge the self, silencing randoms and trolls, and sitting in one’s purpose with a good book in hand. As you listen to Episode 2, notice how my guests come alive at the possibility of working with women producers in Jamaica and the reality that the musical atmosphere is changing.  Yes, more and more it is becoming a welcoming community of collaboration. These amazing ladies show that Koffee’s big Grammy win in the reggae category is both the culmination of decades of little steps and the commencement of even bigger steps for women in Jamaica’s contemporary music world. This is for female posterity. (Also, big up Drake and *bonus clips at the end* every time!) 《Follow me on IG @Riddim.Writer / Twitter @IsisSemajHall - Follow Naomi on IG @naomicowan / Sevana on IG @callmesevana / Lila on IG @lilaike / and Jaz on IG @officialjazelise - I encourage you to stream, buy, support their music.
