IFARI from Florida

Artist History

IFARI (Robert Carroll) grew up in a countryside village called Plaisance in the Country of Guyana.  Raised with the love and guidance of his grand parents, he learned at an early age that his father was a musician, music teacher and player of many instruments.  As he grew older and sought after his father, he found out his grandfather was also a music teacher and player of many instruments.  What a discovery this was to him, it sealed his direction in the music industry.  

IFARI has since written many songs and worked with many musicans, performed as well with many artists and over the years has gained his comfort in this profession.  As it has been stated by the Contrast News Paper out of Canada in its February 15,1990 commentary about IFARI, the writer classes him as a genius of a poet and songwriter - and indeed he is.

RadioIndy is pleased to present IFARI with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Expressive Moods"

“Expressive Moods” is a roots reggae rock album from Guyana native IFARI that features nine uplifting and spiritual tracks. IFARI is Robert Carroll, who brings great reggae vocals and creative experimental arrangements to the table while singing songs of faith and self-realization. “Expressive Moods” features great beats, some excellent bass guitar work, guitar, keyboard, and a variety of other instruments IFARI experiments with, including whistling. The recordings sound great and clean, realizing the full sound IFARI dreamt up with each track. “Hail I” is a slower song featuring keyboard and a great beat, as Carroll sings about freedom and praising Jah. “Conquering Lion” has a great arrangement with horns, a driving beat, keyboards, and a nice bass lick. Not only that, it possesses great lyrical imagery, and has a catchy chorus. Overall, “Expressive Moods” is an impressive album highlighted by the spirituality in the arrangements, lyrics, and vocals. Fans of faith-based roots reggae rock should give IFARI a listen.-Chris & the RadioIndy.com Review Team

RadioIndy is pleased to present IFARI with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Shadow of a Dim Light"

IFARI's "Shadow of a Dim Light" is an upbeat roots reggae album filled with catchy tracks that inspire creativity and overall wellbeing. Currently residing in Florida but originally from Guyana, IFARI brings a refreshing, true reggae sound and great poetic songwriting to the States. “Shadow of a Dim Light” is filled with strong words and solid arrangements focused on both a great musical and spiritual experience. The album's production value is very good as well, and it sounds great, with all the instruments having equal representation in the mix. Highlights include the title track, "Shadow of a Dim Light," which kicks things off with a great hook and melody that reel you right in. "Wife and Pickney" brings an instant smile to your face with an uplifting progression and another great melody. "Congo" features a grooving bass line and nice percussive elements. “Shadow of a Dim Light” is an overall success that well-blends great musicianship with inspiring lyrics. If you are a fan of inspiring reggae that is true to it's roots, give IFARI a shot. -William
