"JAH MUSIC" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, August 25 2009 - One reason why Reggae does not get the recognition that the music deserves, may very well be found in the fact that it is not only common, it is -in some ways- a must for artists to give praises to the Almighty in at least one title.
The biblical roots of many things related to Reggae Music is clear for even the casual observer. Dreadlocks, just like Samson in the Bible, the worship of Jah, Whose Name is praised by everyone who says "HalleluJah", all these things show why Reggae Music is so often called "Jah Music".
It doesn't mean that all these artists really mean what they sing with all their heart and soul, obviously. But I think that the number of genuine praises to the Most High within Reggae Music exceeds that of the whole "Gospel Industry".
One Love, Give Thanks,
