Biography

In November of 2003, Jahnesta's first album came out with ten(10) hits, all loaded with powerful, inspiring messages but at the same time light and almost aerial in their tune.
This was a new adventure for the group, a fresh breath long awaited by the public.
If the title "Reggae Soldiers" is sometimes attributed to the group, the CD's title"Solda Jah" clearly symbolizes the group's leader, Alain Moraille. it encompasses his vision and his stand. His authentic style, his contagious melodies and his universal charisma have already conceded to the group the right to affix the seal of success on their music, in a world that has become increasingly competitive.

Alain Moraille a.k.a.Jahnesta, is the catalyst of the group he has truly concretized the dream that he has ceaselessly strirred in his soul for several years. He remembers having caught the reggae virus from his uncles when he was only five years old. These relatives then teenagers made him listen to Bob Marley's mythical "Natty Dread" on the old phonograph perched in his grandmother's living room in Place Boyer in the town of PĂŠtion-Ville a suburb of the Haitian Capital.
While other children of his age only decorated their rooms with posters of Mickey Mousse,Spiderman and other "made in US" childhood gadgets, the walls of his bedroom were lined with Bob Marley's pictures that he secretly cut out from the newspapers that his "older" uncles inadvertently left around. Very soon, he had memorized all the hits, and every time an opportunity came up, he asked that a LP or a cassette of the "King" be given to him as a gift.
In a kind of progressive spiral, a concatenation of events resulted in Alain's shy strumming an old accoustic guitar when he was 17, and this gesture served him as premonitory musical stepping stone...During that same year, under the instructive guidance of Daddy Beaubrun(Bass player of the Boukman Eksperyans band), his "live" solo interpretation Of "Redemption Song" made the winner of a talent show at "CafĂŠ des Arts" , a well known entertainement place it is there that the path to Music opened up before him.

Lyrics

Don't Worry Mama

Written By: Alain Moraille

Now that he talks a new talk
and praises a new name
Now that he grows his locks
you say he's not the same
O Mama you don't worry
your son was blind now he can see
O Mama you don't worry
for what is to be, it must be

Don't worry Mama, don't worry
Don't worry Mama if your son a Rasta (2x)

Now that he walks a new walk
the so called friends are gone
But JAH is the only rock
you can lean upon
O Mama have no fear
please don't cry,dry your tears
O Mama it's so clear
can't you see?The time is near

Don't worry Mama, don't worry
Don't worry Mama if your son a Rasta (2x)

Everyday I witness their iniquities
O Mama who are they to judge me?
Yes I heard their unpleasant comments
Lord knows I won't fall under their judgment

Don't worry Mama, don't worry
Don't worry Mama if your son a Rasta (2x)

Man Hunt

Written By: Alain Moraille

There's a clamour in the night
something's about to ignite
You know them getting ready
for their awful hobby
Now you see them in the bug
eager to unleash their dogs
Hunting in the air
and soon a nightmare

Man Hunt(see them hunting),This is a man hunt(They keep hunting),Man hunt(see them lurking) ,This is a man hunt (2x)

A shadow's running in the dark
refuses to be an easy mark
A man has to fight
for his life his only right
They want him dead but not alive
so they'll make sure he doesn't survive
You kill a freedom fighter
a martyr's born forever

Man Hunt(see them hunting),This is a man hunt(They keep hunting),Man hunt(see them lurking) ,This is a man hunt (2x)

There are things they don't want you to say
and if you do ,there's a high price to pay
There's a stance they don't want you to take
and if you do, it's your life at stake

Man Hunt(see them hunting),This is a man hunt(They keep hunting),Man hunt(see them lurking) ,This is a man hunt (2x)

Break Them All

Written By: Alain Moraille

Abolition of slavery
does not mean we are free
Our mind in captivity
keep our soul in misery
We find it's necessary
to change our mentality

Break them all, Break all those chains
Break them, Break them all (2x)

No need for ideologies
that don't bring unity
One love,one heart,one aim,one destiny
the teaching of His Majesty
will set I&I so free....

Break them all, Break all those chains
Break them, Break them all (2x)

Abolition of slavery
does not mean we are free
Our mind in captivity
keep our soul in misery
We breaking these barriers
that keeping us apart (brothers)

Break them all, Break all those chains
Break them, Break them all (2x)

We Don't Want It

Written By: Alain Moraille

Have you seen the politician?
he's all around the nation
Pretending he's the Man
who comes with solutions
We've heard this speech before
we don't want to hear it no more

We don't want it, we don't want it no more
we won't take it, we can't take it anymore (2x)

Have you seen mister bluff man?
he's everywhere in the country
he keeps bringing more guns
corrupting with money
He says he needs our vote
of our problems he took good note

We don't want it, we don't want it no more
we won't take it, we can't take it anymore (2x)

we shall not put our faith
in no candidate, who's an impostor
we shall not put our fate
in no candidate, acting like a savior

We don't want it, we don't want it no more
we won't take it, we can't take it anymore (2x
