Notificacion 12.3 IJAHDAN TAURUS / edition 2013 english version below
CON TANTOS AÑOS EN ESA LUCHA EL CANTANTE DOMINIQUEÑO DICE Q NO DESCANSARA HASTA Q LAS OBRAS DE ROYALHABITS&PRODUCTIONS, CULTURA REGGAEDAN Y SKYHIGHFILMS ESTA SONANDO EN LOS EQUIPOS DE CASA, CARRO O DISCOTECAS!
SIEMPRE SIENDO UN ADMIRADOR DE LA MUSICA REGGAE, DANCEHALL Y HIP HOP CONSCIENTE, DESDE LOS 90'S IJAHDAN EMPEZO A ESCRIBIR SUS PROPIAS LETRAS Y GRABANDO SU MUSICA CON UN TOQUE ORIGINAL.AHORA LO HACE EN TRES IDIOMAS; INGLES, ESPAÑOL Y CREOLE.
CADA ARTISTA POSEE UN ESTILO ORIGINAL , LO IMPORTANTE ES LA INTENCION Q TIENE TAL ESTILO O LA RAZON DE CANTAR. EN EL CASO DE IJAHDAN , CANTAR ES SU TRABAJO Y RAZON DE EXISTIR!
DAN CONFIESA Q SU MISSION ES ENSEÑAR SOBRE SUS CREENCIAS DE RASTAFARI, LA VIDA, RIMAS...Y UN POCO DE TODO LO Q PASA ALREDEDOR DE NOSOTROS, LUEGO SI LA GENTE QUIEREN BAILAR AL RITMO , PUES Q LO HAGAN PERO YA NO ES LO MISMO Q CANSARSE BAILANDO MUSICA COMMERCIAL Y VULGAR EN UN PUB. LA VIBRA ES ALGO DIFERENTE, CON MAS POSITIVIDAD!
QUISIERA CANTAR EN MAS LUGARES ABIERTOS Y Q HAYA FOGATAS Y GENTE HUMILDE , NO ENCERRADO EN UN BAR DONDE NADIE PRESTA ATTENCION AL ARTISTA SI NO A LAS CORNETAS..."DIJO EN UNA ENTREVISTA.PERO COMO YA SABEMOS,NO TODO EN LA VIDA ES COMO DESEAMOS Y EN CUANTO UNO SE SIENTE LIBRE EN SI MISMO Y EN PAZ CON DIOS, DEBERIA SEGUIR LUCHANDO PARA LOGRAR SUS SUEÑOS OLVIDANDOSE DEL MUNDO Y EL MATERIALISMO.COMO DICE SU TEMA "PURA IMAGEN FEAT MARIO".
DEBE EXISTIR ALGO EN CADA ARTISTA Q ES EL AMOR PARA LA MUSICA ANTES DE VERLO COMO UNA CARGA O UN TRABAJO, ES UN TRABAJO PERO NO CON LA DEFINICION INMUNDO...EL CREADOR AGRADECE LOS CANTANTES Y LOS Q TOCAN INSTRUMENTOS EN SU NOMBRE Y IJAHDAN NO QUIERE Y NO PUEDE DEJAR DE HACERLO NO IMPORTA EN Q PARTE DEL MUNDO ESTA, ENFRENTARA CUALQUIER BARRERA CULTURAL, CRITICAS O DIFERENCIAS..
DAN HA GRABADO Y SIGUE GRABANDO AVECES SOBRE PISTAS DE REGGAE, HIP HOP Y DANCEHALL DE MUCHOS PRODUCTORES AUN DESCONOCIDOS Y OTROS POCO CONOCIDOS, PERO MUY BUENOS, COMO RAS CUBO,RAS SPARROW, E.J RAMS,STILL J (RAPSODY),AUDIOSAPIEN ROCKALOT,DJ MAIZ Y OTROS MAS DEL CARIBE Y VENEZUELA.EL GENERO PREFERIDO DE DAN PARA HACER UN TEMA ES ROOTS CON UN TOQUE DISTINTO COMO LO Q CANTA MIDNITE BAND DE SAN CROIX EN LAS ISLAS VIRGENES. DE HECHO ESTA ENSAYANDO CON DOS BANDAS PARA SUS PROXIMOS EVENTOS.
DAN DICE QUE HA GRABADO BASTANTE MUSICA PARA TENER UNA DISCOGRAFIA DE 21 DISCOS INCLUYENDO SU NUEVA PRODUCCION POR SALIR ESTE AÑO LLAMADO "R E P A T R I A C I O N 2 0 1 2"
UN DISCO Q VIENE ACOMPAÑADO CON UNA REVISTA CON TODA LA INFORMACION SOBRE EL PROYECTO, LOS ARTISTAS INVITADOS Y PRODUCTORES Q PORTARON INSTRUMENTALES.
MIENTRAS, ESTARA PROMOCIONANDO SUS ULTIMAS PRODUCCIONES DE 2011 HASTA PRESENTE Y MANTENIENDO LA LLAMA CON NUEVOS SENCILLOS Y VIDEOCLIPS TRABAJADOS POR EL MISMO.

Since 11 years old, Dan began to identify his talent to create his own music. Always listening to Ragga, Dance Hall and Reggae from people like Shabba Ranks, Everton Blender, Junior Reid, Peter Tosh and also some Hip Hop groups and artists. Dan heard a new song that was inspiring and learnt it surprisingly fast, observing his ability to hold down a show and not forget his lyrics. And that’s an advantage for a singer. Close friends and family members were surprised with this talent.
