ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Migrating from the Edenic landscape of Free Hill St. George Barbados to the concrete jungle of New York was a germinating seed of writing talent. This seed was planted in the creative space of Ras P Tafari aka Patrick Clarke. He came knocking on the door of educational oppurtunities. Emerging himself into a huge melting pot of diversse lifestyles, he soon began capturing every moment of this unique environment. Sculpturing every experience into verses of poetic expressions as each experience transdence his psyche.

Ras P Tafari writing relationship began with his hobby of journal, essay and penpal writings during his teenager life. A stronger relationship developed when he cofounded the Poetic Artisan Theatrical Society in New York City. This relationship moulded his writing oddyssey and added fuel to his flaming desire for poetic exploration. He left the group and continued his exploration on a solo voyage. This voyage took him deeper into the poetry world where he blessed the mics at different poetry spots throughout New York.

This poet creative interest was not limited to writing. During his high school life in Barbados Ras P Tafari became a member of the school dance troupe. Later after graduation, he studied dance at the Barbados Dance Theater and performed with them at different cultural events. Ras P Tafari was a founding member of the Dance Nationale Afrique (DNA) and he was also a dance instructor for different groups. Here in America he taught dance routines to a Barbadian (Bajan) group named U.R.B.O.N.Y. While studying Respiratory Therapy at B.M.C.C., he became a member of the college dance club and later became a student of American Dance. It was at this point that his writing seedlings began to sprout into mature plants of creativity as he was being taught how to write chorographies. His college life soon got disrupted by financial droughts and this unexpected circumstances lead him far away from the gem of his love to the work market. A place of no creative expressions, but service of labor for his basic human needs. With no more time for dance routines, poetry in motion became his only creative outlet, while he journeyed back and forth on the buses and trains. Dancing took the back stage of his life, while his free moments, travelling on the buses and trains became his only creative space.


Ras P Tafari poem, Poetic Emancipation has lit a path to literary recognition. Awarding him the editor choice award and an invitation to recite it at the most prestigious gatherings of poets during the summer of 2006. He was also nominated poet of the year 2002 and 2003. Now this year 2006 Ras P Tafari has bursted the seams of silence with his long awaited cd album Shadows Of I Conscience, A Reflection Of Spoken Word With Music. The cd title is taken from the seventh poem of its 10 tracks album. It is Ras P Tafari hope that this album will be accepted with many signatures of approvals.
