"Dere is no truth but de one truth, an’ dat is de truth of Jah Rastafari," was said so eloquently by Robert Nesta Marley (1945-1981) in his Jamaican patois.

Bob was awarded Jamaica’s Order of Merit (just one month before his tragic death from melanoma cancer) for his contributions to the nation’s culture.  He epitomizes Jamaica, magic and the power of faith.


Rasta Trivia

Bob Marley was born on February 6, 1945.

"Ras" is a respectful title that means prince or head.  Many Rastafarians have this title preceding their name, as in "Ras Earl."

The word "Rastafari" comes from Haile Selassie I, the Emperor of Ethiopia, whose given name was Ras Tafari.

Red stands for the blood the people shed; Gold stands for the gold and diamonds stolen from Africa; and Green stands for the land of Africa and the hope of victory over oppression.

Dreadlocks are worn because of passages from the Bible, Leviticus 21:5, "They shall not make baldness upon their head, nor shave off the corner of their flesh."

One of the main beliefs of the Rasta is that Selassie I is the true and living God.

"ONE LOVE" means that people of the world unite in the spirit of love.

"Feeling irie" means that you rule your internal and therefore are at peace with yourself.

"JAH" means Almighty God (shortened version of Jehovah).

Reggae music originated in Jamaica in the '70’s as an important influence on world music, but suffered from the early death of its only superstar and undisputed king of reggae music, Bob Marley.  He became reggae’s superstar because of his musicianship and his powerful moral authority at a time when the horror of the Vietnam war was fresh.

Original roots reggae music stands for one love, unity and social enviornmental awareness.  It is conscious music which unites all ages, ethnic groups and backgrounds.

Reggae is the message music of the Rastas; ascetic, vegetarian and peaceful.  Although they have slowed the ska beat down with a hypnotic, bass-toned sound that is capable of awesome power, it has retained the ska chop on the offbeat.  Their lyrics are the voice of the people and have had important effects on Jamaican politics.

Reggae concerts/shows are always peaceful because the music is always peaceful, representing love and unity.

The moment in history that inspired Bob Marley’s hit song, WAR, was when Emperor Haile Selassie I made his historic speech before the League of Nations in 1936.

Rastas eat "ital" food.  "Ital" means natural or pure, originating from the word vital (life giving).

Personal Note:  I celebrate Bob’s (1978) "One Love" Concert every April 22 (Earth Day)  ;-)
