Singer Khanakah Harmony's personal experiences led him to pen the song Better to Make a Life (Grass roots rhythm), which has been enjoying some steady rotation on the radio in recent times. He said the song was inspired by the birth of his son. "It's better to make a life than to take a life.
The song is talking to people who take other people's lives. The birth of my son inspired me to put the lyrics together. Most of my songs are inspired by personal experiences", Harmony said in a recent interview.
Khanaka Harmony's real name is Sheldon Facey. At 29 years of age, the Rootical Music/BNM Records recording artiste already has a resume he can be proud of. He had a guest shot on I-Wayne's Lava Ground album on Keep Burning Rome. He also recorded on the popular Lava Ground rhythm, produced by the Loyal Soldiers camp, with the track, Crime Continual. "That song did well for me in Trinidad. The feedback I have been getting has been really positive. It's a lot of work and I am grateful for the way things are shaping up", said Harmony. His name, he says, means warm in Amharic. His lyrics are inspirational and real. His musical journey began as a youth singing in local church choirs. His first professional recording came three years ago with I'm Just Burning a Fire for producer Daddy Vic. The Portmore-based singer says the purpose of his music is to remind the people of their strength within and to help to guide them through the ever-confusing maze of society.
Harmony's latest singles include Protect the Children for BNM Records, Push it All the Way and Things Set a Way.
