“The album is titled Gemini because I am a Gemini and so is a large percent of the small group who helped to put the album together. It is said that Gemini’s can get along with all signs of the zodiac and that they adjust and adapt easily. I think those are some important traits to have in this time,” Etana explained. 

With songs rooted in Reggae with hints of Dancehall, Hip Hop and Blues, the soulful singer displays her artistry over twelve enticing tracks. The music video for the single “Bubble” was released on June 23 and showcases the tantalizing sounds, colours and moves one could associate with Reggae music. Describing the overall theme and mood of the album, she added,

“Love and happiness, spontaneity for the lovers and one or two strong messages that reminds us as a people to focus on moving forward in a bigger, better, stronger and more concise way.”

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
