Israel Vibration. Formed in 1970 as a trio, Israel Vibration's current members are Cecil 'Skelly' Spence and Lascelle 'Wiss' Bulgin. Albert 'Apple' Craig, another founding member, left the fold in 1997.
They met as children in the Mona Rehabilitation Center, into which they were placed because of their families’ limited resources and their needs for specialized medical care. They learned early on the necessity for developing survival skills, and although polio is an undeniably crippling and debilitating disease, the youths never let their physically challenging situation supercede their willpower and their creative abilities. They found strength in the faith of Rastafari through the guidance of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, and began composing and singing songs which expressed their spiritual beliefs.
Droop Lion. Born in the parish of St. Mary Jamaica, to Inez Aikens and Vivian Brown, Andrew Brown aka Droop Lion grew up in the tough, gritty shanties of Kingston.
He lost his mother to gun violence when he was just nine months old, a savage act that robbed the young man of a mother’s love.
He turned to music to express himself and make a spiritual connection with the universe. At a young age under the guidance of his grandmother, he vowed to stick to the conscious path and not compromise in order to achieve success.
“My music is down to earth and cultural. There's always a message in it. It's like a medicine to society's sickness," Droop Lion says of his particular brand of music.
