Singer Kerida Johnson is the daughter of legendary selector Albert 'Ilawi Malawi' Johnson of the Jamaican Jah Love Sound System. Her rasta parents taught her music and spirituality before she could even walk. Her still is heavily reminiscent of roots reggae and is laced with influences from R&B and hiphop. There is a reason why she enjoys listening to Sade, Lauryn Hill, Burning Spear and Ijahman Levi. Hempress Sativa offers her audience and intense listening experience, with lyrics full of rasta symbolism and ganja activism. Sativa is a traditional yet innovative singer and DJ with a message. She is accompanied by her own band UnconqueRebels, straight from Jamaica.
