Sistah Jahia is an Afro-Caribbean singer of Reggae,Roots and Dub who sings in Creole, English and French. It is through her conscious and committed texts that she affirms her Faith in Jah Rastafari, advocates a Universal Love and claims her African origins.
On stage, she is on mission Haile Selassie I the First and her voice is her Weapon. It was during high school that she wrote her first texts, recorded her first titles, and chose the name, Sistah Jahia.
In 2010, as part of a solidarity project, she accompanied young people in Senegal, turned out to be a Great Spiritual and Artistic Revelation, and when she returned to France she started writing again. This desire to share music with the Nation will lead her to meet activist artists of the French Reggae Movement such as the Dub poetess, singer and storyteller “Sista Caro / Caroline Castelli” who will put her in touch with the Guadeloupeans Producers / Composers : Killah (ASHAM STUDIO) and Jekel (KONKA PROD).
This collaboration led her to work with Dr LS (LIBERTY PROD) for whom she will record several tracks such as “Mawon” (available on the upcoming album of Sistah Jahia). She will prove herself in the Dub movement in Paris by accompanying sound systems such as Positive Vibration, I Love Sound or Roots Meditation.
In 2012, she returns to Guadeloupe and will be in relation with many active members of the Guadeloupean Reggae community such as Asaliah Gad (Jahlawa Foundation), Ras Abbya (Freedom Fighters), Selectress Abigene (Conscious Way Outernational) and more who will support her in this
process. Today she makes scenes in Guadeloupe but also in the Caribbean and is working on her first album to come Nyahbinghi which is scheduled for the beginning of 2022.
