Multivision Music Studio presents: "Please Forgive Dem Lord", written, recorded and produced by Jahna Sebastian aka Missie J ("Jah Souldierz"). The film by Bumble Bee Studios, produced by Dub AKA (Derek Wright) 2008
I wrote "Please Forgive Dem Lord" after my bass-guitarist of my band "Jah Souldierz" (which I formed in Russia in 2005) was beaten up by fascist skinheads on his way to Bob Marley Festival in Moscow, where we were scheduled to perform. He was injured badly and was taken straight to the hospital, but we still performed without him with our guitarist taking the bass. All of those criminals were set free, most of them never found. It happened to him because the skinheads in Russia think that playing reggae, hiphop, soul, jazz or any kind of "black music" is wrong and they particularly attack not only people of different race and skin colour in Russia, but also musicians who play "foreign" music. There is a street war going in Russia at the moment with fascist and antifascist movement fighting against each other. But there are deeper roots hidden behind the real situation and why fascism raised it's head in Russia, the country which defeated Hitler in 1945, and I believe that when there will be no more prejudice in the world, there'll be no more wars, but also we need to find peace in our own hearts.
