Jake Savona, aka Mista Savona, is arguably Australia’s leading exponent of roots reggae and dancehall music. In 2011 he released his groundbreaking fourth studio album “Warn The Nation” – which saw him working alongside internationally renowned artists such as Capleton, Sizzla, Horace Andy (Massive Attack), Anthony B, Alton Ellis, Burro Banton and many more. JJJ called it “Australia’s definitive reggae album” and the Sydney Morning Herald defined it as “fantastic…the most incredible reggae album”.

Savona’s previous studio album release, the pioneering “Melbourne Meets Kingston” (2007), is a 21 track tour de force – the first ever album length collaboration between Jamaican and Australian musicians. Featuring reggae luminaries such as Anthony B, Big Youth, Determine, Lisa Dainjah and many more, “Melbourne Meets Kingston” has been described as “a landmark for Australian music”.

LYRICS:

“Emperor Selassie I, Jah

I’m living, for the sick and the poor
The hungry and the shelterless, sleeping on the floor
I’m giving, all I’ve got and more
I know Jah will bless me and open up the doors
I’m living, for the young and the old
The blind and the deaf, and the dumb ones you know
I’m giving, Jah Jah love, to all of the
Beautiful people of the world

Governments coming with the same damn thing,
Million year, trillion years, ‘aint doing one thing
Children, listen when the Rastaman sing –
No matter the destruction, gwaan praise the King
Warn them and tell them there is right over wrong
Mr President , why is it you make the bombs?
Everyday is weapons of mass destruction
Seems like they got no love for anyone

I’m living, for the sick and the poor
The hungry and the shelterless, sleeping on the floor
I’m giving, what I’ve got and more
‘Cause I know the Most High will bless me for sure
I’m living, for the young and the old
The blind and the deaf, and the dumb ones you know
I’m giving, Jah Jah love, to all those
Beautiful people of the world

Don’t you worry all my people,
Cause Rasta never leave you
Babylon try to deceive you
Africa with open arms will receive you
Although, the sufferation hard, well listen –
We’re doing it for a cause
Sometime though I’ve no food in the yard
Journey me haffi step towards

I’m living, I’m living
I’m giving, whoa whoa oh whoa oh ay ay

Seems no one care for them
But Jah is there for them
And I’m here for them
Jah love I declare for them
Stretch a helping hand to the youth
You can only lead them with the truth
Don’t you hear them crying?
Don’t you see them dying?

I’m living, for the sick and the poor
The hungry and the shelterless, sleeping on the floor
I’m giving, all I’ve got and more
I know Jah will bless me and open up the doors
I’m living, for the young and the old
The blind and the deaf, and the dumb ones you know
I’m giving all I’ve got and more.
Most High will open up the doors

Hey, yeh Savona, Kalonji
It’s beautiful
Taking it to the world, whoa
Jah is always there…”
