Back To Africa (Review)
The long awaited sophomore cd release by Harry Mo is finally here and it’s blazing hot. Excellent work of art. This 14 song album on the Yellow Hill Music label was recorded and mixed entirely on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands at the well known Back Yard Studio and at I Grade Records Studio. It is deeply roots oriented with strong, insightful lyrics flowing over some beautifully crafted and tasty melodies. It is a must have for every roots reggae lover.
The album is titled Back to Africa and contains fourteen tracks which reflect on African heritage, strengths, desires, beauty and struggles. Harry Mo has a strong sense of Afro-centricity and humanity as a whole and this is noticeable throughout the album. The collection opens up with its title track, a musical portrait of Mother Africa. The song Ithiopia speaks about the affection Mo developed for the country of Ethiopia after he traveled there in 2003. The song Show Her Love is a ladies favorite since it talks about the importance of showing one’s Empress Love and Raspect, as Mo calls it. Natural High has a Hip-Hop/Nyabinghi beat and is the only song that features another artist. Popular St. Croix artist Volcano (Lava) combines perfectly with Mo on that one as he chants away.
The Rastafarian way of life, at its most complete expression, is deeply spiritual and requires absolute self-discipline, austerity and humility as defined by the tune Mystic Man. The song Jah in My Life is the heart of this album because it is the essence of Harry Mo. My Dream is a song that we all can relate to as it explains Mo’s heartfelt desire for peace throughout the world. There is also a track especially livicated to St. Croix the new cradle of roots reggae and Harry Mo’s adopted home. St. Croix Rock is already a hit tune in the Virgin Islands and is ready to cross into the international airwaves. All the songs on Back to Africa are unique and hit hard.
Harry Mo has penned these insightful lyrics and he sings them with pure clarity. He has presence and his aura is positively magnetic. The album is a masterpiece and good spiritual food for all, especially the Rastafarian community. It should not only be read about but listened to again and again. Back to Africa was produced by Harry Mo with strong production input from Anthony Lion Arthur, Al Baptiste Sr and Tippy I of I Grade Records. It is being distributed by https://www.tradebit.com and is also available online at https://www.tradebit.com. The musicianship is top notch, the mix is excellent and the general sound of the album is great. Be sure to add this one to your collection. Runaway Slave, Harry Mo’s first cd is also available at local record stores and online.
