Reggae Prophets

by Palmwine Sounds

“Music and Life: Reggae Prophets" delves into the influence of Rastafarianism on reggae. Rastafarianism, a faith, and cultural movement that originated in Jamaica in the 1930s, heavily influenced the lyrics and themes of reggae songs. The book explores the Rastafarian beliefs in unity, love, and social justice, and how these principles are reflected in the poetic nature of reggae music. Throughout the book, the author highlights the key figures who played a significant role in shaping reggae music and its poetic message. These "Reggae Prophets" include legendary artists such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Burning Spear, among others. The author delves into their poetic techniques, the themes they explored in their lyrics, and the profound impact they had on the reggae movement.
