Umojah - not to confuse with the five piece band from the mountains of northern Montana or the Jamaican roots singer from St. Ann's, Jamaica - is a band that emerged on the Cruzan (St. Croix, USVI) scene some fifteen years ago. Over the years the band has built a repertoire of popular reggae cover songs as well as original tunes. The founding and current core members of the group, Lenn and Babs Bully, have been writing, arranging and performing together for the entire life of the band. Other dedicated band members include Cyril browne and Leslie James. Their collective musical abilities enable them to provide lead and backup vocals, as well as bass, keyboard, guitar, drum and percussive instrumentation. Originally released in 2002, "Sounds Of The Innocent" is Umojah's first cd project. It can be regarded as a tribute to their fans in St. Croix who have been supporting them since 1985.
