‘I AM WHAT I AM’ …Redhed Qi’s Up Coming Album

REDHED QI

Welcome to another edition of Lady Paulette Speaks…

Following her amazing opening night performance at the ARIWA ‘Back to Africa Festival’ in The Gambia and her stints in Germany and France, Redhed Qi’s aptly named album ‘I Am What I Am’ is set to launch later this year.

This uniquely talented woman is forcibly writing and carving her way into what is predominantly a male orientated world.  Unapologetic in her delivery, Redhed Qi’s lyrics are driven and thought povoking.  Not a woman to be pushed around and or dictated to, Redhed Qi is a force to be reconned with, telling it as it is in this 21st Century way of living.

Her commanding performances leave no question as to what she stands for, and, that is…  ‘Standing up for Self’… ‘The’ or ‘Our’ Power Lies Within… So Start to Tap in!

During her recent showcase as the opening act for ARIWA’S Mad Professor’s ‘BACK TO AFRICA FESTIVAL’ and subsequent national and international performances, Redhed Qi has the animated and excited audiences chanting back her lyrics to her in full voice.

The ARIWA stable states of this Raw Talented artist…  “The lead single ‘I Am What I Am’ is an expression that many people would like to say but a lot of the time don’t know how to.”

“Spreading that “Rootikal Love” [another track from the album] no one quite manages to do it better than our very own Redhed Qi.”   http://ariwa.com/

For your sneak preview of the title track, and Redhed Qi’s own breakdown of who she is,  click on this… Redhed Qi – \’I Am What I Am\’ Promo – ARIWA   Also, why not  check out the interview in a previous post, conducted with her by Lady Paulette during thier trip to The Gambia.

Blessings,

Lady Paulette

ROYALTY IN THE ‘LOVER’S ROCK MONOLOGUES’

Were you there?  No!?  Oh Dear. Oh well despair not as they ‘will be back’!

LOVER'S ROCK MONOLOGUES

'LOVER'S ROCK MONOLOGUES'

London’s Tricycle Theatre ‘Sang Out’ to the sweet sounds of Lover’s Rock, as the genre’s royalty in the form of Janet Kay, Victor Romero Evans and Carroll Thompson took to the boards to take us on a journey back to a time when ‘flower shirts’ met box ‘pleat skirts’.

Following it’s initial run in February at The Dugdale Centre, Enfield, the trio brought this well honed piece to the North West of London.  Here the audience were on their feet from the opening lyrics ‘This is Lover’s Rock’.  Reminded of a time when Love was sought in the arms of a partner who could ‘scrub and go down’.  The audience screamed and laughed at the demonstrations given by Victor Romero Evans who was only just to pleased to give them more.  On the night the show was stolen by the audience participation antics of both Janet Kay and Carroll Thompson… want to know more well…

If you want to be a part of the fun next time, keep your eyes peeled for the new dates to be notified here at MEE Village in the very near future.

See you back here soon.

The Story of Lovers Rock

Photo: Director, Menelik Shabazz and Associate Producer: Paulette Harris-German

‘The Story of Lovers Rock’ sees it’s UK national release sell out at four London cinemas on it’s Opening Night!

Many faces of disappointment were seen in London on the night that Reggae’s softer side took to the silver screen.

The Ritzy Brixton with Menelik Shabazz’s Q&A hosted by Henry Bonsu, The Odeon, Streatham, Pekhamplex in Peckham (hosted by Junior Giscombe) and the late night screening at the Rio in Dalston all saw potential audience members stumped at their inability to purchase tickets.

The word was definitely out, tickets to the latest offering from the UK’s Leading Black Filmmaker, and founder of Bfm Media, Menelik Shabazz was being releasedand the more discerning cinema goers had the foresight to book their tickets in advance.

Following the films sold out premier at London’s Bfi NFT1, ‘The Story of Lovers Rock’ was now on a limited release. With a celebrity line up including Janet Kay, Sylvia Tella, Carroll Thompson, Angie Le Mar, Victor Romero Evans, Paul Dawkins, Trevor Walters, Robbie Gee, and Eddie Nestor, and word of mouth rallying the call, all indications were that tickets would be in great demand.

With strong reviews in Time Out Magazine and on Permanent Plastic Helmet to name but two, and, now in selected cinemas for five weeks ‘The Story of Lovers Rock’ is still drawing sold out audiences, with the screening scheduled for the 11th November 2011 at the Tricycle Cinema virtually sold out with only 13 seats left on sale as I write.

‘The Story of Lovers Rock’s selection as opening the night film for the 2011 African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) this November heralds the beginning of it’s international run.

If you haven’t already seen it, what are you waiting for? With a 12A certificate, this is a film for the family. For more information and updates on screenings, visit the ‘The Story of Lovers Rock’ website: www.loversrockthefilm.com and or join their Facebook Group at: The Story of Lovers Rock

See you at a screening near you.
