Self taught lyricsist known as www.instagram.com/azalineage/Aza Lineage, Dana Bernard was born in Kingston 7, Jamaica, to teenage parents. She grew in an extended family with her Grandmother being the head of the household. Aza was influenced by Reggae and Dancehall Music from an early age via Serious Gold, a Sound System that was owned and operated by her cousins. With the upcoming of cable TV in the '90s, Hip Hop and R&B music were broadcasted in Jamaica, and Aza instantly fell in love with both genres: „My style of music is a combination of Reggae, Dancehall, Hip Hop, R&B, Revival and Sound System Culture". Her art is about "decoding the Roots" by drewing great inspiration from Dennis Brown, Bounty Killer, Beenie Man and The Fugees. Her way of "honoring and continuing the works and the legacy of Reggae and Dancehall‘s movers and shakers, is about reaching out and making heartical connections", she claims, by manifesting and spreading "total self awareness, self acceptance and selflove".
