Rastafarian Culture and "Reggae Music"

"Rastafarianism" is a religion which we must give a lot of credit for the huge success of dancehall and reggae music worldwide.

If you should have a conversation with a Jamaican about this religion the first thing or person they would mention is "Bob Marley". He is the person who took this genre of music and made it popular worldwide.

Most people in the world who know and talk about him would always made reference to his big hit single "One Love".




Are you interested in joining this religion?. Well let me say there are some hard and fast rules that comes along with it. Here are a few..

1. No eating of meat/flesh although some members do eat fish.

2. You are required to grow your hair/dreadlocks, No shaving or combing.

3. Must be positive and loving.

There is a bit of controversy regarding who Rastafarian's served as their Idol. Most of the members of this religion said that "Emperor Halie Selassie" is the most high and he is who they call king.

He was born in 1892 near a small town called Harar in Ethiopia.

The Symbol attached to this culture/religionis a flag with three colors "Red" "Green" and "Gold" (yellow) with the picture of a Lion in the center of the flag..

The fruits of the land is what they eats and drink.

"Marijuana" (ganja) is a herb that is used as a medicine for healing. And is smoked a lot to improve their meditation.

But do remember it's illegal in Jamaica and in most countries worldwide.

The words that mostly used them are Jah Rastafari, King Selassie I.

The Rastafarian culture required that those who are involved in the dancehall and reggae music industry have to live-up to the high standard set by the Legends. Which means they are expected to do only Positive uplifting music.

And I must say that in the dancehall and reggae music industry today most of the musicians are "Ras" as they are sometimes called.

Rasta fari such as the late Bob Marley, Burning Spear, Sizzla, I-Octane,Capleton amongst many others are all Rastafarians.
