Dancehall artist Karamanti – who is a citizen of Canada, although based in Jamaica – has just entered the Canadian Rebel Vibez Reggae Chart with her tune Start with a Prayer. The song is the first single from her recently released album, Spiritual Warfare, published in December 2021 via her own Blakkwuman22 Music label.
The rhythm for Start with a Prayer was created by Old Harbour based music house AudioTraxx Productions, which is headed up by the talented Lamar Thompson. Start with a Prayer is a hardcore dancehall track that is presented as a form of devotion. On the record Karamanti literally prays for the so called gangsters who are taking innocent lives, the countless young men and women who are clearly lost and confused, and everything in between.
In addition to being the lead single from the Spiritual Warfare album, Start with a Prayer is also one of four songs featured on the Restart Riddim; a dancehall compilation that also has music from Peppery, I-Talawah and Sherida Sharpe. The Restart Riddim is also on the Blakkwuman22 Music imprint.
