The Christian reggae trio 'Imisi is headed by brothers David (Tevita Ka) Fohe, Jubilee (Siupeli Koula) Fohe, and Joel Roberts. The group began years ago as the worship team for their church youth group which was named "Youth Exodus." The name stuck, and the Fohe brothers and crew became known as the reggae band Youth Exodus. The group toured widely and released an album called Youth Exodus Live in 2000. No longer really "youth" and now forging ahead with their own ministry, a new record & distribution contract with Lion of Zion Entertainment, and a new line-up, a name change was in order. Going back to their Tongan roots, the guys chose the name 'Imisi to capture the heart of their message and ministry. 'Imisi has been compared to everyone from Luciano to Gregory Isaacs, and even labeled "The Reggae Katinas." Fusing an unshakably God-centered message with the full intricacies of bona-fide Jamaican reggae, the message of these Pacific Islanders' lyrics stands in great contrast to the message in most of today's top secular reggae.
