Rootfire World Premiere: Taj Weekes “Here I Stand”

Love, love, love. It really is all you need. That’s what Taj Weekes believes. And love doesn’t know boundaries. It’s the heartbeat of life. It doesn’t matter who you love, just as long as you do love. That’s the message behind “Here I Stand,” the first single from Taj Weekes & Adowa’s fifth album, Love Herb & Reggae.

“Love is a human rights issue,” Weekes states. “That’s the important thing. We shouldn’t be defining people by their sexuality. Who’s the one to decide what’s ‘normal,’ anyway? What we need is more love in this world, more diversity. The single is me: I’m stating my position and taking my stand.”

That’s something we can all support. Congratulations to Taj on the upcoming release of his new album, Love Herb & Reggae. Your lyrics and music have constantly had a warm presence in my life since I first heard “Janjaweed.”
