Total Rebel Sound & Megga Entertainment is proud to present a night of Reggae/Dancehall featuring SISTER NANCY AKA "MUMA NANCY" the first female Dancehall DJ and singer !!!
SISTER NANCY is described as being a "dominating female voice for over two decades" on the dancehall scene. One of her most famous songs is "Bam Bam,"labeled as a "well-known reggae anthem" !
In the world of Jamaican music, where female icons are few but mighty, Sister Nancy’s original voice has resonated for decades. Born in Kingston, Jamaica into a huge family, she began her time as a dancehall DJ and singer in the late ’70s and early ’80s, alongside her brother Brigadier Jerry and the Chalice, Blackstar, Stereophonic and Jahlovemuzik sound systems. Whilst collaborating with artists such as Jonny Osbourne, Yellowman, Capleton and Angie Angel on over two dozen EPs and singles throughout the ’80s and early ’90s, it was the release of her 1982 debut solo album One, Two on reggae label Greensleeves that made her a star.
Sister Nancy’s high-pitched patois vocals often meander among the crackling bass, whopping horns and playful use of space, a combination that saw her song “Bam Bam” become a reggae classic – largely unbeknownst to Sister Nancy herself, though, who only learned of its cultural reach after moving to New Jersey in 1996, where she lives with her family and worked as a bank accountant for 15 years. Although she never reached the commercial heights of some of her dancehall peers, the influence of Sister Nancy remains – hip-hop stars such as Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Main Source, Too $hort, Chris Brown, and Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth have sampled “Bam Bam,” among others, and she remains a towering figure for female dancehall and reggae artists worldwide.
