Demo Delgado: “Live and Learn”

reggae music video & artist website

Accolade005Demo Delgado is a talented, prolific and controversial Jamaican reggae artist.  With “Live and Learn” he returns to his rasta roots after a successful early career as a dancehall ‘singjay’, co-writing songs and touring with Wayne Wonder and other reggae/dancehall and hiphop performers.

JaZzyMaE Media was honored to co-produce Demo’s first solo music video, “Live and Learn” – a conscious, upbeat, roots-reggae style single, with his indie label, Marwan Records.

Laurie Lamson helped develop a concept and wrote a script for the video.  She was the director and editor, and recruited Director of Photography Eduardo Quintino and his gaffer/grip, Gustavo Leon. She also pulled together a bunch of the props, costumes etc.  (See blog post from before the shoot.)

Demo and Laurie brought together an international, all-ages supporting cast who vibed perfectly together on- and off-camera. The music video is in rotation on Hype-TV (Jamaica), Reggae Jam Television (online), Soweto-TV (South Africa) and Tropik TV Network  – on Tropik Hits, featured on an episode of 5Sur5TV (Caribbean and Tri-state area) and reached #3 on the Tempo TV Networks chart (the MTV of the Caribbean).  “Live and Learn” also screened to a small but enthusiastic audience at the first annual Culver City Film Festival.

“Demo is an inspiring artist with a wonderful gift to share with his music,” says Laurie.  “I hope this video helps him reach a broader audience who I expect will love the song as much as I do.”

Laurie also customized Demo’s new website: DemoDelgado.com.
