Fertile Ground

Formed in 1997, Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.

Fertile Ground comprise of:

James ‘The Light’ Collins (composer / pianist / trumpet / arranger)

Navasha Daya (lead vocals)

Ekendra Das (percussion)

Craig Alston (tenor saxophone / baritone)

Fred Dunn (trumpet / flugelhorn)

and Marcus Asante (drums)

James Collins formed Fertile Ground in Baltimore in the spring of 1997, based around Navasha Daya’s warm vocals and drummer Marcus Asante’s drum grooves.

Fertile Ground created their local fame by performing in the local Baltimore area clubs.

The group has since grown into a sextet that includes African percussion and a horn section.

Fertile Ground are influenced by both Gil Scott-Heron, the music of Marvin Gaye and the early work of Jon Lucien.

‘Field Songs’, the debut album by the group, was a compilation of jazz and R & B and was released on the groups own Blackout label (named after the groups self owned Blackout Studio’s).

Collins said of the groups debut set:

‘The basic concept of the title ‘Field Songs’ is that we’re still in the fields.We are all slaves of some kind and color. We just work for different masters. My people were taken from our homeland and sprinkled into fields around the world. Well, I think it’s time to go home. That’s the purpose of our music, to bring people together and take them home.’
