Søndag den 9. Juli slår vi dørene op til et bas brag af en sommerfest når vi har en af Jamaica og USA stærkeste kvindelige sanger på mikrofonen: Sister Carol! Som opvarmning har vi inviteret vores Christiania homegirls Ida Ambrose, Jessica og MIA I AM.

Derudover holder vi udendørs chill arrangement mens solen stråler på os fra 14-20.30. Som kom og nyd en kold i eftermiddags solen til lyden Christiania Dub Clubs bedste selectors på legepladsen foran Musik Loppen.

 

Sister Carol er uden tvivl en af dancehall æraens mest succesfulde kvindelige DeeJays, for at sætte det i perspektiv: hun er  reggaens svar på Queen Latifah: en stærk, positiv feministisk stemme der er inspireret af hendes tro og seriøse tilgang og har aldrig solgt sig selv med seksuel appel for at vinde publikum.

Baseret på social bevidst materiale har Sister Carol leveret opløftende men også kritiske budskaber inspireret fra Rastafari kulturen, samtidig med at fanen for respekt for kvinder bliver holdt højt. Sister Carol er mere udpræget Sing-Jay end en fuldtids toaster, i stand til at synge melodisk vokaler og ligeledes solide rytmer.

Hendes første etablerede album blev udgivet på Jah Life pladeselskab i 1984 med titlen "Black Cinderella", der også er titlen på hendes signature song og hittet "Oh Jah (Mi Ready)". Herefter dannede hun sit eget pladeselskab, Black Cinderella, som udgav mange af hendes følgende albums, blandet med "Mother Culture" i 1991. Hendes største success til dagsdato blev dog udgivet på Heartbeat i 1995 "Call Mi Sister Carol" og "Lyrically Potent" i 1997 som medførte en grammy nominering for bedste reggae album. Hendes næste album "Isis: The Original Womb-Man" blev udgivet på Bob Marleys Tuff Gong pladeselskab i 1999, derefter fulgte et live album og "Empressive" i 2003, hvor Buju Banton tunen "His Mercy Endureth" er på.   

Sister Carol er også kvinderettighedsaktivist, skuespiller og entreprenør, hvor hun senest blandet andet har fokuseret på hendes tøjmærke Black Cinderella. Hendes seneste to albummer er 2011 all-star collaborations "Sister Carol and Friends". 2014s "Live no evil" er udgivet på hendes eget pladeselskab og er hendes første solo plade i 8 år.

På "Live no Evil" dækker hun er bred variation af emner fra økologi til "Afromance" på produktioner fra bl.a.  Noel Alphonso, John Altino, Yellow Wall Dub Squad, Soja, Glen Adams og Firehouse Crew. Flere af de 14 tunes på albummet er adaptioner både fra og udenfor reggae scenen.

Sister Carol lander som først stop i Europa hos os her på Christiania Dub Club og turneen fortsætter på Øland Roots i Sverige og Dub Camp Festival i Frankrig. Kom og oplev det eneste show i DK!

Sunday July 9th are you invited to a true female warrior summer party at Musik Loppen when one of the strongest voices from Jamaica and USA is on the mic: Sister Carol! As support we have invited our Christiania home girls Ida Ambrose, Jessica and MIA I AM from Female Reggae Night.

We are starting up early at 14 o'clock in front of Musik Loppen at the Playground where Christiania Dub Club's best selectors will provide chilled vibes untill doors open at 20.30. Come and enjoy a cold one in the afternoon sunshine.

One of the dancehall era's most successful female DJs, Sister Carol was something like reggae's answer to Queen Latifah: a strong, positive feminist voice who was inspired by her faith and never resorted to sexual posturing to win an audience. Leaning heavily on socially conscious material, Sister Carol delivered uplifting and cautionary messages drawn from her Rastafarian principles, while always urging respect for women. She was more of a singjay than a full-time toaster, capable of melodic vocals as well as solid rhymes. Never quite a commercial powerhouse, she nonetheless enjoyed a lengthy career and general critical approval.

Recorded for the Jah Life label, 1984's Black Cinderella was the album that established Sister Carol in the international reggae community, featuring the title track (her signature song) and "Oh Jah (Mi Ready)." Carol subsequently formed her own Black Cinderella label, which gave her an immediate outlet for single releases in the years to come. Mother Culture followed in 1991, giving her another nickname to go alongside "Black Cinderella." Her highest-profile album to date, Call Mi Sister Carol, was released by Heartbeat in 1995, and was followed a year later by Lyrically Potent, which earned Sister Carol her first Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album. Her next album, Isis: The Original Womb-Man, was released on Bob Marley's Tuff Gong label in 1999. 2001 brought her first-ever live album, Direct Hit!: Sister Carol - Live; it was followed in 2003 by Empressive, which featured a duet with Buju Banton on "His Mercy Endureth."

Sister Carol is also a womens' rights activist, actor and entrepreneur – who has lately concentrated on her Black Cinderella clothing line. Her last album was 2011's all-star collaboration Sister Carol and Friends. 2014's Live No Evil on her own Black Cinderella label is her first solo outing in 8 years.

Live No Evil finds her holding forth on a diversity of topics from ecology to "Afromance" over a grab bag of rhythms sourced from contributors including Noel Alphonso, John Altino, Yellow Wall Dub Squad, Soja, Glen Adams and Firehouse Crew. Several of the 14 tracks are adaptations of famous songs from inside and outside the reggae arena.

Christiania Dub Club is Sister Carol first stop in Europe on this tour and she continues to Øland Roots in Sweden and Dub Camp Festival in France. This is exclusively at Christiania Dub Club in Denmark! Represent the Culture
