Tuff Gong International Artist Plants Roots in Jamaica


World traveller and budding songstress Delphine has made the decision to root her reggae music career in the birthplace of the genre. She was born in Burgundy, France, and at age 10 decided that her pursuits would be in the arts. After gaining an education in lyrical and classical training, and traversing borders to perform in various bands, Delphine has settled on Jamaica being the primary production spot for her music.

“Reggae music at this moment speaks to me,” she told The Gleaner, in sometimes broken and heavily accented English. “Reggae music talks to me. I don’t know if it’s right what I say now,” she laughed.

“I love music since I’m a little girl,” Delphine said. “I respect the music and all the legacy for the people who make the music before me. And I want to make it live (with more) respect.”
