We came across the project Rise and Shine and had to share it with the readers of The Famous Face!
Rise and Shine 3.11 is a collective of Reggae artists organized through a network of 3 cities: Kingston, Jamaica, New York, USA, and Tokyo, Japan. The goal of the project is to support those affected by the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami that rocked the north-eastern coastal areas of Japan on March 11th, 2011.
This project includes famous talents such as Shinehead and I-Octane. Other artists affiliated with the project include Anthony Red Rose, Ninja Ford, Lenn Hammond, Vybrant, Prophecy, Iakopo, Worm Bass, George Maralious Cockle, Avril "Starfire" Aiken, Simone Gordon, Sango, Rese, DJ 19 and Movers who are Catapila, Dennis "Shango Trex" Llewellyn, and Edison.
It has taken almost two years to bring this project to fruition because of the addition of more and more Artists. That said, 19Box is ready to release the Chill Out Remix by Ambrozia (DJ 19 + Edison), the instrumental Karaoke version alongside the Original Mix. While it’s not the usual 19BOX(JUKEBOX) RECORDINGS sound, there is a great deal of meaning for a Japanese label to release this single when one considers the impact the tsunami and earthquake had on the country.
