About

Originally inspired by the rhythms that carried her in travels through Africa, then by the underground dancehall scene in Vancouver, then spending time elbow-deep in crates of '45s and finalizing it all with visits to Jamaica, Mandai is proud to represent as one of the Lighta! crew's femaie artists. Blending dancehall classics with newer gems and throwing down dub plates acquired while in Jamaica, she stays loyal to the island vibes. With each year her love of music keeps getting deeper. She has performed at Bass Coast & Shambhala, is a regular at the infamous Thursday Ting, as well as underground parties that want to keep things inna dancehall style. She recently gave birth to Lighta's youngest little member. bup!bup!

    @Subcorr: I'm not sure which one you're asking about but the first one is "Nah Sell My Soul" by Gappy Ranks on the Island Breeze Riddim, then it mixes into "Some Gyal Desperate" by Lady Saw on the Priceless Signature Riddim - probably the best riddim all year!! BOOOM!!!
