I Jah - Tuff Like Iron / Dubwise (Ariwa) 7"

Format
Track Listing / Description

If you know your British Caribbean history you will be well aware of the Windrush Generation. If you are not, then some knowledge of what transpired some 75 years ago is required. After WWII, Britain was in need of workers to get the country back on its feet. From 1948 onwards, men, women and children arrived from the West Indies as what has become known as the Windrush Generation.

I Jah, being the Grandson of Beryl Sylvester who was part of that group, has chosen to commemorate that legacy and the passing of his Grandmother Beryl Sylvester during the pandemic with his latest song 'Tuff Like Iron'. Released on Ariwa Records, it is a fitting tribute to a woman who triumphed over adversity. Facing systemic racism and the hardships of being from a different culture, her strength and resilience were an example for her family to follow and I Jah has captured that sentiment perfectly.  

Sung by I Jah, co-produced by First Eye, with guitar by James Shepherd and harmonies by Tree (a classical singer from Trinidad), this is immediately identifiable as a classic in the truest traditions of the Caribbean community. Add it to your playlists, honour the memory of the Windrush Generation and discover exactly why they had to be 'Tuff Like Iron'.
