“Gege Vibes Streaming Show #2” features Interviews with Julian Marley, Bamm Holt and Gmac.

 

“Gege Vibes Streaming show” is the new Gege Vibes Magazine‘s format available on Youtube. The purpose is to keep our press contents up during those hard time of Covid-19. Normally, we travel to realize video interviews with Artists after their shows, in Festivals, in studios or during their tours. Right now social distancing and quarantine not allow us to continue to work in this way, that’s why we have decided to introduce the “video calls interviews”. We believe that in this difficult period is very important to keep the positive vibes alive with home entertainment, good music and information.

The second chapter of “Gege Vibes Streaming Show” is fully dedicated to the cannabis world as long as it was recorded on 4/20/2020. We released some brand new interviews featuring recording Artists Julian Marley, Bamm Holt and Gmac.

Julian Marley talked about his last album “As I am”, the power of herb in those times of captivity for the humanity who is forced in quarantine because of the unnatural corona virus and many more. Bamm Holt, who is John Holt‘s grandson, originally from Jamaica but living in USA, told us about his love for reggae and hip-hop. He got skills in both of the musical genres. He also announced that soon will be out his tribute to John Holt called “1000 volts of Holt” together with his father Junior Holt. And on top of that, he is working to release his first solo album as well. Gmac, real name Garfield Mclean, answered our call from his city Kingston and explained us how we have to handle this quarantine as an opportunity to reflect on ourselves and connect with the divine spirit. Basically he suggested us to invest this free time in the best way possible. He also talked about his upcoming album “The legend” produced by the Italian label Morelove Music. In the episode we got some extra special credits. We featured as song premiere of this month “Weed Plan” singed by the historical jamaican artist Mykal Rose, produced by Young Pow Productions and distributed by Ghetto Youths Intl.

Ultimately, we gave a space for the dancers featuring the Italian DHQ from Salento Aurora Rah, who showed us two personal choreographies dancing on Masicka music.

DOCU-INTERVIEW / Dancehall dancers Movement in Puglia: da Lecce a Taranto fino a Bari

La dancehall oltre ad essere un genere musicale è un vero e proprio stile di danza con steps ben precisi. Un ballo da studiare che è partito dalla Jamaica e si è esteso poi in tutto il Mondo. In Italia c’è una valida scena di dhdancers tra cui spiccano nomi ormai di rilievo internazionale come la Dancehall Queen Alevanille. Tra le sue allieve storiche, abbiamo voluto approfondire il caso della diffusione del movimento in Puglia perché ci sembrava eclatante. Il fenomeno si è sviluppato a macchia d’olio in tutte le province e ad oggi si ha la possibilità di prendere lezioni di dancehall da Lecce a Taranto, da Bari a Foggia. Abbiamo così voluto raccogliere le esperienze delle giovani e talentuose Aurora Rah da Lecce, Sonia Cubanita da Taranto e Anyta Honeygal da Bari.

Dopo un lungo periodo di formazione attualmente le ragazze sono tutte istruttrici oltre che ballerine e tengono dei corsi di dancehall nelle rispettive aree di appartenenza. Aurora è maestra della Dancehall School di Lecce ma impartisce lezioni in tutto il Salento, è già andata in Jamaica più volte a studiare partecipando nel 2015 all’International Dancehall Queen di Montego Bay, Sonia ha dato vita al suo gruppo TDHD (Taranto Dancehall Dancer) ed ha accompagnato in tour la scorsa estate la reggae queen Mama Marjas, Anyta ha formato il collettivo Bari Dh Squad ed ha aperto con i suoi show molti live di importanti cantanti della scena black. Innamorate di Alevanille che definiscono la propria madrina, le tre “mad gyals” raccontano a Gege Vibes le proprie esperienze più significative relative a questa danza e ci svelano i sogni che hanno per il futuro…
