Tasha T - Keeping it Real with Real Talk.  

Sampler

tasha t Tasha T, the Canadian reggae princess hosted the launch of her second album Real Talk under the auspices of Chip Smith’s Caribbean Billboard Magazine at Tafari Tribe café in Brooklyn on Friday July 20. The Media was invited to attend an early pre-event from 7-10 pm and had unfettered access to Tasha T without the usual crush of eager fans who would arrive later that evening.

Tafari Café is building a nice name as a place where good things happen, whether it’s the hospitality of business partners Sandra and Steadman or the ambience, it’s a great music hang-out spot on Flatbush Avenue.

Looking elegantly trendy in her black lace dress, Tasha T graciously answered questions about the album and mingled with the crowd, with not a trace of diva behavior to be seen on her countenance.

This is a full roots reggae album with 17 tracks each offering a different vibe and telling its own story, already Bed of Fire is #1 in her native Canada and climbing the Italian Charts where it stands at #14.

The VP distributed album is produced by some stellar names in the reggae industry - Mikey Bennett, Bobby Digital, Computer Paul, Syl Gordon, Orville 'Rorey' Baker, Paul 'Patchy' Wright and Danny Maestro. With her catchy rootsy, ragamuffin singjay style, Tasha T brings her talents as DJ, Mike MC and vocalist into play. Tasha T’s music always has a message, whether it’s about upliftment; better days or lessons of redemption. Singing songs of praise to her Rastafari faith in Ethiopian Liberation, the Burning Spear inspired Ethopia, Jah Jah Children, Halamese Selassie and the powerful documentary Bible Talk.
