Rico Cicero has been on the entertainment scene for many years, but has chosen to be in the shadow.
He said as a kid his greatest wish was to be invisible, I do believe deep down in his heart he still has that wish.
He has written over two hundred songs, several short stories for video clips and an endless list of poetry.
Most of the lyrics and musical compositions in this cd were simultaneously revealed to him in his dreams.
That is why all credits for the writing and composing of these songs on this album “Righteousness” belong to a power much higher than us all.
He was born in Jamaica, migrated to Canada at a young age, there he began his music career writing, composing, and singing peace songs, at peace concerts, and protest marches around North America, but some how he never published his music.
This album title “Righteousness” is a true expression of the way he sees the world falling apart from greed, corruption, imperialistic oppressions, political and religious exploitations, state, civil, and religious terrorism, drug addictions, famine, diseases, pollution starvation and a total lost of respect for humanity.
So once again he is trying to bring awareness trough his music to the tragedy our planet earth is facing.
There are many different styles of music on this album, but can not escape that Jamaican roots.
Songs like track no 1 “Why we got to cry”, track no 2 “Wrapped up in God’s love,” track no 6 “Promised Land,” and track no 10 “Terrorism is freighting” are all Ska Rhythm.
Track no 3 “Terrorism is a menace”, and track no 11 “Time bomb ticking” are Musical Poetry. Track no 4 “Mon Cherie” Is Dance Hall Reggae.
Track no 5 “Got to stay clean” is more Roots Rock Reggae.
Track no 9 “Songs that make me strong’ is Country.
Track no 12 “Please pray for me, and track no 7 “Angel” Are Gospel
and track no 8 “Religion” is Folk.
Rico Cicero has made Holland his home for many years, there he found a lot of peace, tranquility and inspiration, but lately even in his hideaway he can see, feel and here the presence of evil incurving on what was once his safe haven in that small farming community named Vianen, in the Dutch country side located on the bank of the river Lek.
So this album Righteousness is not just a message or words of inspirations, but a very strong plea for divine intervention to restore righteousness.
Rico Cicero’s second cd titled “Latino Reggae” is near completion.
It is a very lively cd. It has a mixture of Calypso-Soca mixed with some Latin beats with a strong Reggae influence. Some songs even have a Brazilian Samba rhythm.
Hopefully this album will be released in time for the carnival season which will be early next year (in the year 2008). This cd has 13 tracks of strictly jump up music.
In these troubling times happy music is the most recommended therapy to keep us sane and bring back better times, if not at least the memories of those better times.
So stay tuned and look out for Rico Cicero’s “Latino Reggae” album coming soon.
One love, keep it real and just live righteous. It is so easy to be nice.
