Over the last four years she has performed in various European countries as well as in the U.S., sharing stages with Mighty Diamonds, Pat Kelly, Sugar Minott, Jah Mason, Capleton, Beres Hammond, Marcia Griffiths, Sister Carol and others, which increased the popularity and reputation of the 'Fire Mamma' as she is also known. On her 17 track album Empress Ayeola showcases her considerable talents as a conscious vocalist and songwriter. After listening to her singing and unique delivery it's obvious that she can easily take her place amongst reggae's greatest female artists like for example Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt. Besides showing energy in her voice and lyrics, there's also a certain sweetness in her melodies, which makes her delivery a real treat for the ears. "Isat Innat" features songs full of love, joy, and respect for the teachings of HIM Emperor Haile Selassie I.
Of course not every track included here is a real strong effort, but to be honest... this can't be expected from a debut release! However there are only a few mediocre tracks around, the remaining tunes are solid to excellent pieces including our personal favourites "Rastafari Works", the wonderful "Take Care Of Our Children", the dub-poetry influenced "Warring", "The Youths Of Today", "The Wicked Shall Perish", "Let Me Be Babylon" and the outstanding "Ketch Him Heng Him". Overall "Isat Innat" is an uncompromising debut album with relevant topical songs from an songstress of whom we will surely hear much more good music in the near future. Read more on Last.fm.
