Queen Ifrica & Tony Rebel

contact booking : michel@mediacom-tour.com

Fille de l'illustre Derrick Morgan, star du ska dans les 60s, la reine des Dance Halls jamaïcains s’est forgée une solide réputation scénique au fil des ans. Sa rencontre avec Tony Rebel marque le véritable envol de sa carrière. Impressionné par sa virtuosité musicale et la qualité de sa performance scénique, il lui propose aussitôt d’intégrer l’écurie d’artistes de son label Flames. Queen Ifrica va multiplier les singles en solo (Randy, Just my brethren, Boxer, Stockings…) et en duo (Stay with you avec Tarrus Riley, Fire red avec Gentleman...) tout en enchaînant les performances live à travers le monde.


Démontrant une profonde conscience sociale au travers de ses textes, elle pratique ce qu’elle prêche par le biais de nombreux projets communautaires en jouant bénévolement à des concerts de charité, en parlant de la condition des femmes dans le reggae lors de conférences universitaires ou en défendant la cause des enfants…

 

Son premier album, Montego Bay, sorti en 2010, est unanimement acclamé par la critique internationale. Ses mélodies ennivrantes, son timbre clair et sa voix fluide font de Queen Ifrica la digne descendante d'artistes tels que son père Derrick Morgan, Garnett Silk ou encore Nina Simone et Miriam Makeba.

Queen Ifrica is a reggae singer and deejay from the hills above Montego Bay, Jamaica. She is the daughter of ska music legend Derrick Morgan. Her career began in her home town in 1995 when she won a talent competition in a local club. From 1998 she began working with Tony Rebel’s Flames productions and since then, she has worked her way up to being one of the premier female cultural reggae artists in the business, performing all over the world in music festivals including Reggae on the River in California and Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica.


Her first album “Montego Bay” released in 2010 was critically acclaimed in Jamaica and overseas. Queen has had several of her recordings become a staple on the airwaves, from the ever popular “Randy” to “Boxers and Stockings”. Queen Ifrica’s music resonates with conscious, purifying energy. She remains grounded in her way of life, her community and her children. A Rastafarian by faith, she has a strong social consciousness, and she is known for her work in the community outreach activities and for writing songs about deeply personal subject matter such as “Below the Waist” and “Daddy”.


With her haunting melodies, clear sound and fluid delivery, Queen Ifrica sets out to be a force to be reckoned with, creating timeless rebel music in the ilk of her father Derrick Morgan, Garnett Silk, Nina Simone and Miriam Makeba. Her aspiration is to make music that lives on.
