Rama Demetrius Dyushambee, DD - AKA: Inspector Out Rageous, The Cosmic Detective; Cosmic D; Jughead; E.D.; Eddie Harris; Edward Douglas Harris, Jr. (false name on birth certificate) - or whatever label. “I know that I am a figment of my imagination:-), and I know better than to take myself or anyone else too seriously.”

Now residing in San Diego, California, Rama was born October 25, 1943 in Petersburg, Virginia. Lived most of his adolescent years in “South B Village,” an African American village in Hopewell, Virginia and teen years in “Davisville” Project until graduation from “segregated” Carter G. Woodson High School at 17 years old, and enlistment into the US Navy in 1961 - Viet Nam Era Veteran, honorably discharged October 25, 1964 after 3 years, 3 months and 3 days.

His musical roots trace from the'40s and '50s Southern Black Baptist Gospel in the local church and “The Grand Ole Opry” on grandparents' home radio, to high school choir and band. Also, high school “do-wop” group with Jimmy Hayes (original and current singer with THE PERSUASIONS) - the highlight of which was a booking on a show with the original IKE and TINA TURNER band touring the “Chitlin' circuit” in their bus. And, on to music school after the Navy, followed by three years as a private high school music teacher, director of a local Boston, Massachusetts production of the Rock Opera, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR. Played the college and club circuit from New York to Maine for 3 years with the Bill Colwell Band, during which time the band backed up JOHN LEE HOOKER on his Boston area gigs in the early '70s, and shared a dressing room area with MILES DAVIS for one week.

For the last past 20 years his priority has been raising his - now deceased as a Homo sapien - 20 years and 3 months daughter/Indigo Child and Evolution Angel, Tanisha Rasanna Dyushambee; And, studying, learning and experiencing how “this that and the other” is related to “the other, that and this,” in preparation for “The Landing” and transition to the next millennium, paradigm, level and dimension.
