This year has some spiritual essence to it like no other. It feels reminiscent of a time when everyone just wants to be pure, or just that purist feel. It feels as if we the people and Earth have matured to a point where we want to re invest in ourselves. It sounds that way as well in our music, along with persons finding resonance with natural health food stores, yoga classes, meditations and all.

Now let me introduce you to Bariffe MacKenzie. On the world stage he's best known as Jahriffe the front man and lead for the Jah-N-I Roots band.

Music is life and art. Art and life is music. You just can't get one without the other and that's what makes an artist and teacher like Jahriffe  very important to our culture. His music is melodic but more roots rock reggae that comes with a message. A spiritual vibe.


The band is from Dorchester and has been doing their rounds for a few years. Jahriffe first came on the scene in the late nineties early 2000 trying to figure it out as a teen. He progressed in writing and fine tuning his skills, but also grew spiritually.  Which lead to the release of an album in 2005 "Rastafari Love" and his second album in 2013 "Check Your Timing". Both albums brought the young band and Jahriffe notoriety and boosted their place in the Reggae industry.

The break out came via the track "Rasta Can't Fade" which propelled him to a being recognized as a potential star in the making. The single which came out in 2016 enabled him to tour the west coast of America and perform with acts such as Jah9, Kabaka Pyramid, Ihbamar and many more stars.


Now putting the finishing touches on his third studio album, Jahriffe is focused on making sure this album is a solid representation of his journeys and introspect on life. The album which is titled "Reflections" has found itself in the hands of some great producers and minds. This project is a lot deeper than prior albums and is being supported by Push A Yute Inc. It has productions from Jah D of Zion High Productions. Album is set to be out some time during spring and we can rest assured that there is a track there ready to open a third eye.

Let's stay on alert for this new project when it hits the road.
