Some would consider Dancehall to the most popular music in Jamaica. It began in the late 1970s and has now impacted all different types of musical genres worldwide. Initially Dancehall was a more sparse version of Reggae than the roots style, which…Continue

Like the Dawn Penn tune recently posted, (on the No, No, No riddim), there are heaps of others that have stood the test of time. Leading off with some classics from the "pre-electronic" era...Fade Away riddim... Throw Me Corn riddim... Real Rock…Continue

What I love about reggae is that it is a primal beat which corresponds exactly to the heart chakra. It's a potent tool to shift gears with and rise above the distractions by.

It's the music of the people, and as such the word reggae comes from everyday, common things-ragga, raggedy and not concerned with superficial things.

In many ways, reggae is a reflection of the mind and the heart of the people who are somehow restricted or downtrodden by the workings of society, if that society is the cause of poverty and all of the real evils associated with it, in other words a repressive or dictatorial type of society characterized by intolerance and fear-based control.

As with every genre there are as many interpretations of the music as there are people, as no-one can follow another.

One really is not obliged to believe in any particular thing and yet be a diehard reggae fan, though generally speaking there aren't any racists or downpressing heavy people who love it either.

Blessed Be

Just another oldie which always stirred the blood back in the day.

After a time, I realized that violence only creates more violence, and this becomes a chain reaction. For every action, there's a reaction.

The longer we persist in thinking that violence is the way to solve problems, the more pain and suffering there will be all round. All spiritual people disgrace their Higher Power by needless violence.

Not that Fascism is dead and gone, it must be said.

I watched a whole lot of videos on You Tube recently about the resurgence of Neo-Nazism all over the world, in places as far apart as Greece, Germany, South Africa, and the USA. These are are just a few examples.

What strikes one immediately is the similarities between the various Fascist parties. They all profess to be highly religious or spiritually inclined. They all believe that God made the races to be separate, and that what they are doing is fully justified in God's name.

They all hate people who are not of their nationality, religion, race and background. They feel justified in using violence as a means of fear-based control.

Then we get the counter reaction, which is also quite frightening in it's intensity.

I watched another video on the Jewish people discriminating against Africans in their land, and it reminded me of precisely the same mindset. As does the xenophobia and genocide inflicted by African upon African - or the fact that women regardless are still not given equal rights, respect and justice, yet?

What is happening? One may ask. Is this world really so short-sighted to see that all of this emphasis on perceived differences is the very tool used to keep us all in slavery? (Just sayin';)
