Davita Jackson

For over a decade, Davita and twin sister Davina Jackson sang for Drummie Zeb and the Razor Possee, traveling and performing with major reggae artists such as, Culture, Burning Spear, Toots and the Maytalls, Spragga Benz, Yellowman, The Meditations, The Itals, Eek a Mouse, Sister Carol, Black Uhuru, Pato Banton, and Israel Vibrations, among others. They went on to record and perform with blues/reggae artist Corey Harris -- featured on 2002's Downhome Sophisticate (Rounder) 2002) and 2009's blu.black. The twins also make an appearance in the From Mali to the Mississippi opening episode of Martin Scorsese Presents The Blues - A Musical Journey (2003). The twins have something of a magical rapport that comes from that deep and mysterious connection that twins share, in addition to decades of musical collaboration. They work together with joy and enthusiasm, solving musical equations for whoever needs their services.

In 2004, Davita and Davina worked at Haunted Hollow studios to provide Houston Ross with backing vocals for Soko's epic groove meditation, Joy of Love (Soko:Two, Breezeway Records). Sokoband certainly hopes to work with them again, perhaps performing Joy of Love in concert someday.
