Holy Mount Zion Single đŸ”„ & New Video Reel!!! 9/22

For Immediate Release!!!

From the plantation spiritual to the Nyabinghi  chant, Zion has always been  a common theme in the music of oppressed peoples, representing a place of freedom and peace beyond the woes and shores of Babylon.  

Zion themed roots reggae classics like “By the Rivers of Babylon” (Melodians), “Jerusalem” (Alpha Blondy), “Satta Massagana” (The Abyssynians) and “Dreamland” (Third World) awakened our consciousness and stirred our souls.

In her new single Holy Mount Zion, Queen Makedah continues in these rootical footsteps by using her golden voice atop a mesmerizing funk, house and hip-hop infused contemporary reggae riddim composed by the genius of late Jamaican bassie producer Christopher Meredith (Sugar Minott, Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill, Stephen Marley) to chant down Babylon system and yearn for a homeland.  

Written in response to tragic cases of police brutality and racial injustice that plague ghetto youths (like Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown and countless others) and innocent civilians in America and around the world, Makedah says: ‘This song represents the collective prayers of mothers and loved ones who seek peace, equal rights and justice for their children and families.’   The urban vibe of rapper EkwayZion nicely balances the tune.  Due out September 22nd on all digital platforms! 

Holy Mt. Zion is a single from the Peace Process album Mr. T described as: “14 worthwhile tracks full of consciousness! Sonically this album is top notch, a real treat for the listener’s eardrums. Most of the offerings are underpinned by appealing original reggae backdrops, which are stamped with quality all over. They are complemented by Queen Makedah’s beautiful vocal delivery which shines on every song.”  Mr. T, Reggae Vibes Magazine  read more
