Faada Ras

faada-ras At twelve years of age Faada Ras left Jamaica and headed to England taking with him only his musical roots and never say die positive vibrations. He spent his formative years in the UK ducking and diving away from the National Front and immersing himself in the emerging soundsystem culture of the Seventies. Inspired, Faada Ras developed his own talents and made the breakthrough to toast for the likes of Imperial I, Upsetters, Turbo Charge, Saxon, Young Lion as well as Jamaican soundsystem Peoples Choice when he visited home. As the Law clamped down on the peoples sound systems, Faada Ras put himself together a band to ensure he could stay connected musically. The Majestic were born and a great success, touring the UK with Reggae legends Aswad, Misty in Roots and the Mighty Diamonds. Faada Ras next found himself behind the scenes as part of the tour management team for Daddy Freddy, Shabba Ranks, Tenor Fly, Cutty Ranks and many more throughout the Nineties. Next up it was time for loving and nurturing, specifically raising family and teaching the local youth how to put together a riddim and a rhyme. During this time he often tested his skills in the studio or live in the then emerging Jungle, Drum N Bass & Dubstep scenes to keep his musical fires burning. Perhaps sensing the coming Reggae renaissance, Faada Ras made some calls and re-connected The Majestic Band, who were soon reformed and touring at festivals up and down the UK. Whether live on a sound or with The Majestic band, Faada Ras spreads positivity, love and unity..his conscious punchy style uplifts the people and always sees him in demand. Ruff ā€˜Nā€™ Tuff, he knows his stuff. No riddim can escape the lashing lyrics of Faada Ras.
