Also known a Senya?

I would swap Rita Marley for Joy White.

What about Jennifer Lara?

Kofi from Brown Sugar is also a great solo artist. Prefer her to Jean Alebambo and Carol Thompson.

Marcia Griffiths
Judy Mowatt
Doreen Shaffer
Patsy Todd
Nadine Sutherland
Sylvia Tella
Dawna Lee
Barbara Naps (who isn’t Niyanatty, btw, It is her duet with Nya Azania)
Sandra Cross
Lady Lex
Caz Gardiner
Jennifer Lara
Tanya Stephens
Lady Saw
Kofi
Janet Lee Davis
Phyllis Dillon
Twiggy
Leba Hibbert
Queen Ifrica
+ Lorna Asher (Yes, that’s 21!)
+ Merlene Webber (22!)

I love Janet Kay's style but enjoy too few of her tunes (production!). When they're great, they're great, though.

Looking forward to hearing more from Lila Iké, one of the finest talents who’s emerged from JA in recent years.

Who is Diana? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruAkYTWQy0w

I aquired a collection once and this was the only decent tune in it.

This is Diana Heron, who became better known as a disco singer but she recorded several wonderful reggae tune before !
Absolutely hooked on her very distinctive voice these days. The limited amount of tunes made me put her off that list, but she was a winner.
