Free Jah Children - Sis Sanae/Abassi All Stars - 7"


In September 2004 Deep Root released, Root010 ‘What We Gonna Do?’ by Luciano and Root011 ‘Free Jah Children’ by Sis Sanae. Both releases are on the 'What We Gonna Do?' rhythm – a product of the Zion Train studio with rhythm, production and mix by perch and brass by the Zion Train brass section. The rhythm is Channel One in style with victory brass reminiscent of the great Yabby You productions out of King Tubbys studio… Sis Sanae is an up and coming roots artist from Yokohama, Japan whose voice sits delicately amongst the blazing brass and militant roots rhythm of this release. Her lyrics echo Luciano’s message from his version as she pleads to ‘Free Jah Children’ out of bondage. Sanae has previous releases on the Mighty Massa label out of Tokyo and on Deep Root. She is well known on the Japanese roots circuit but apart from an appearance on Perch’s Abassi Hi Power in Cologne, Germany 2003 she is unknown outside of her native land.
