As we live in this modern world there are so many different religions and so many different Gods. Even if you are of the same religion the beliefs may be different. How many different types of Muslims, Chrisitans and Jews are there? They all believe in one and the same GOD, and yet we cannot agree as to who does God really communicate with and in the name of the same God we fight and kill each other. Maybe we are better of with no God as probably 1/3 of the population feels. Call us at 646-595-3275 and let's talk about it while we enjoy a cup of java.

Sangie Davis, real name Anthony Horace Davis, is a reggae songwriter and producer whose masterpieces include Bob Marley's "Wake Up and Live" and Sophia George's "Girlie Girlie." His involvement with Marley apparently also led to a handful of original songs that were never recorded as well as an A&R position for Davis at the Tuff Gong label. The aforementioned Marley song title came from an advertising sign on a building in Jamaica. "Girlie Girlie," an enormous hit for George, was extracted fresh from one of his own mother's critical comments. Apparently after seeing him hanging around with a pack of schoolgirls, Mrs. Davis asked "How you so girlie girlie?" Davis claims to have finished his song a brisk ten minutes later. In addition to songwriting and production, this artist has contributed both guitar stroking and background vocal touches to various reggae sides since the early '80s.

No one can quite agree on the origin of the word term reggae. Some say that it comes from the Jamaican dancing style known as “ray gay” while others attribute it to a 1968 recording by Toots and the Maytals called “Do the Raggay”.
What is undisputed is the fact that reggae took off in the late 1960’s and still remains one of the most popular genres of world music. Jimmy Cliff brought international attention to the music with his lead role in the 1972 film “The Harder They Come”. Cliff performed several hits on the powerhouse soundtrack, including the title track, as well as “You Can Get It (If You Really Want)”, and “Many Rivers to Cross”.
Bob Marley took the foundation that Cliff laid and built on it with his unique style of roots reggae, which dealt with love, social injustice, politics and Rastafarianism, the Afro-Caribbean spiritual movement of which Marley was a devoted follower. Anthems such as “Get Up, Stand Up”, “Buffalo Soldiers” and “War” made pointed political statements, while “Turn Your Lights Down”, “Waiting in Vain” and “Is This Love” showcased the mellow, romantic side of Marley and his group, The Wailers.
Ironically, Bob Marley did not receive as much acclaim for his music while he was alive as much as he has since his death from cancer in 1981. Since then, however, he has become the most well known name in reggae and his songs have been responsible for introducing many to the genre.
In the 1970’s, producers such as Lee Perry and King Tubby began adding electronic sound effects to the music and DJ’s began “toasting”, or talking over the music to create what is known as dub music. Dub music is recognized by many as the basis for rap and hip-hop in New York.
While DJ’s and producers were speeding the music up, crooners such as Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown and Freddie McGregor arrived on the scene to slow things down with lover’s rock, a soulful style that deals with love and relationships.
