In the 90’s Queen Makedah immigrated to Israel, where her talent as a songwriter began to blossom while collaborating with Brooklyn-born Tuviel ‘Chariot’ Levi (www.myspace.com/shofarproductions). Tuviel’s original tunes, with a style inspired by groups like The Gladiators, The Abyssinians, Steel Pulse & Aswad, brought forth the inspiration for the lyrics behind tunes like “Healer,” “Lost Everything” and “Lift you Up.” Together, they collaborated with Israel’s famed reggae group, Roots Africa, before the group broke up in 2001. Queen Makedah and Chariot have been blessed to release two albums and one single on their family label, Oriyah Music. Her freshman album, ‘The Awakening,’ was co-produced by one of Reggae Music's great legends, Ras Michael of the Sons of Negus (called the 'Nyabingi Specialist' by Bob Marley) and received national and international airplay, excellent reviews and support from reggae music fans and dj’s across the globe (see www.queenmakedah.com).
Their second album, ‘Spiritual Healing’ – their first self-produced album - introduces hot new tracks, like ‘Kadosh’ (The Holy One of Israel), ‘Freedom,’ and ‘Healer.’ The 'Spiritual Healing' album can be purchased now at www.cdbaby.com/cd/makedah2. Queen Makedah performs in Israel and Internationally and has a band in the U.S. and Israel.
