Bio

Crucial Fiya is a Reggae band that was formed in 2000. The core of Reggae is the heartbeat of “Crucial Fiya.” “Crucial” means extremely important, and “Fiya” is a Reggae/Caribbean idiom that denotes fire and more specifically, fire to burn out the wickedness that persists in the world.

Ralph Ralphtafari Dujour is the heartbeat that pumps the blood through Crucial Fiya. Dujour is of American Haitian descent and possesses a resume that any aspiring Reggae artist/band leader would covet. He studied at the venerable LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts in Manhattan as a voice student. During his tenure at LaGuardia, Ralph sang in the choir for the double Oscar award winning movie “Fame” and he has a voice credit with the 1980 film.

Ralph was taught by the finest that Reggae music has to offer.
Marcus Miller an instructor and veteran bassist, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare who are historical musical giants, all mentored Ralph as he was learning the essence of Reggae during his formative years. Furthermore, Ralph toured and played with Reggae legend Mikey Dread for many years as a bassist. As a song writer/musician Ralph was inspired by other Reggae legends; King Tubby, Flabba Holt, Bunny Wailer, and Bob Marley all contributed to his musical foundation.
