Five questions with Chronixx | entertainment
If roots reggae star Chronixx’s music doesn’t give it away, the dedication he has put into participating in righteous causes nationally and globally shows he is on a mission of upliftment. Writing, singing, producing and performing music that resonates with people is part of Chronixx’s everyday life, but through his foundation Caring Hands of Rastafari (CHOR) he is charged with several missions, from funding and participating in educational projects to protecting the world’s oceans and wildlife.
Chronixx has an extraordinary track record in the highly competitive music industry – but he’s not boasting. It’s not a word he likes or keeps as part of his vocabulary. while he sings “Dweet fi the love, me nuh dweet fi di likes, success nuh comes overnight, mek dem knowledge a substance about hype”. Music is a lifestyle and Chronixx continues a musical legacy. Revealed as a child by his father Chronicle, Chronixx has embraced the responsibility he has been given to lead by example.
While embarking on another project, the musician is focusing on the health and wellness sector and is an ambassador for The Answer, a herbal medicine and collection of natural products created by St. Lucian Herbal Physician Kailash Leonce. He’s also preparing for a busy summer season as he anticipates a successful launch of the JamCoders program. The Computer Science Summer Camp starts on July 4th and was inspired by AddisCoder, a free intensive 4-week summer camp focusing on programming and algorithms in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Chronixx enlightens people and informs them about his daily comings and goings this week five questions
How and why did you decide to become an ambassador for a herbal medicine brand?
And you know [it] It is generally important that during times when people are unsure how to maintain their immunity at a higher level, people know how to maintain a strong functioning immunity. And a recognized way is to use our own herbs but make them easily accessible through concentration [it] into what we have called The Answer.
What do you think is needed to make the information more accessible?
I feel that we, especially as Rastafarians, need to shoulder the expense and labor to bring this knowledge more to the public, as well as the products derived from our own herbs that are found in our countryside here across the region are native and in Africa in general. That’s one thing that Rastafarians do more of.
When it comes to health and wellness, there are still many men who have failed to appreciate the importance or who lack focus…
I don’t support the narrative that men tend to be like this or women tend to be like that [that] or any form of rhetoric. I think people in general don’t really know, and it’s because of civilization and human development that has brought us to this place where the knowledge of taking care of yourself is hidden from general public knowledge. Knowledge of the herbs and how they can help us achieve a state of balance also remains largely hidden from the general public. This is really humanity [striving] to become more responsible about how we maintain our health and well-being. People also need to take more time for themselves; You can be comfortable or uncomfortable, and many people experience discomfort and go through the difficulties of this condition, but taking time for yourself is always the first step to a full physiological reset, and even a psychological and mental reset where this is the case the case is the origin of the disease of many people. Many physical ailments, with the exception of injuries, most diseases that we go through are due to mental imbalance, mental and psychological illnesses.
How do you make time for yourself?
It’s 24 hours a day, 365 days… you have to take some of them. The 7 days in a strong, as Rastaman says for the Sabbath, lasts from sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday. It’s that kind of sabbatical, a rhythmic practice of taking time for yourself. Meditation is time I spend with myself. You can find someone like me in nature and with my family, because that is still taken for granted. Take even more care of yourself, check your heartbeat and if you notice anything unusual call someone with a higher knowledge of how to balance human physiology. That’s what Priest Kailash was to me.
In the end, you have to structure your time so that you can keep that rhythm. For me, one of the things I do is keep it independent and internal so that if necessary, in our own interest, we can defer it enough to take care of ourselves.
What should people expect next from Chronixx?
Don’t expect anything from me (laughs). I don’t have high expectations myself. I do these kinds of things that come from rehearsals. We are working to bring The Answer to the general public. Everything else is my daily routine, writing a lot of songs, it’s my vitality. I mean I make music every day, rehearse every day and people are banging on what you’re doing. I just published never give up and the focus is on continuing that production and songwriting process. We do that with Forever Living Originals from Great Britain. They’ve been my family for a long time and have always been making music Cool as the breeze. For myself, I still don’t want to tell people I’m working on this or that, but I’m working. JamCoders Computer Science Summer Camp at the University of the West Indies, Mona, July 4-29 will welcome 50 students from across the island to learn programming and artificial intelligence from faculty from Harvard and UC Berkeley…teaching assistants from all of them Countries around the world just trying to do some positive work for the summer. The registration deadline was May 22nd, but it will be an annual thing and we are just starting out on a lot of things.
