IQulah Rastafari Gideon Family presents Rasta Village in association with the Rastafari Andahnet Center (St Ann, Jamaica) and the Ethiopian World Federation.
Hosted by Iqulah Rastafari – Iqulah is the president of EWF Charter 17 in his home of St. Ann, Jamaica and has been an International Chaplin for the last 3yrs Rastafari is rightly associated with Jamaica for defending Emperor Haile Selassie the First. The island of Jamaica gave birth to the movement in the 1930’s. Rastafari is an Abrahamic faith that adheres to much of The Bible, though Rastafarians worship Haile Selassie I, former emperor of Ethiopia. Rastafari culture rejects many of the conditions of modern society they consider degenerate, including materialism, oppression, and sensual pleasures. They refer to this corrupt version of society as “Babylon,” which is directly opposite of “Zion,” the promised land, often considered Ethiopia. While many Rastas choose not to cut their hair and wear dreadlocks, it is not an absolute for believers.
Rasta Village will be highlighting the way of life of the Rastafari movement. The Ethiopian World Federation will present a workshop on the works and times of HIM Haile Selassie 1st, the early rise of the Ras Tafari and the Ethiopian movements. As you approach you’ll hear the traditional Nyabinghi drumming and chanting getting louder and the natural smell of the wood fire pit and Herb and Spice Garden In the Village you’ll be surrounded by the Rastafarian life in motion and will see the principles of living in harmony with nature and the role of Haile Selassie I. You have an opportunity to witness food preparation through the Ital village kitchen, showing the vegetables, herbs, and spices used in Rastafarian cooking, showing the nutritional and culinary importance of each ingredient Including:

The Clash and its Reggae Connection: When The Clash was recording their debut album in February 1977, they were asked to come up with an extra track. As big reggae fans, their answer was to cover Police & Thieves, a contemporary club hit by Jamaican singer Junior Murvin. The Clash gave the song their own edgy rock makeover, a move that kick-started Punk’s lasting connection with militant black music, and opened up the band’s music to a strong reggae influence.
Bob Marley, Joe Strummer, and the Punky Reggae Party
Marley’s single Punk Reggae Party put a name to an underground phenomenon – the coming together of the Punks and the Rastas at the height of 70s social unrest. That era may be over, but the Punky reggae spirit still lives and breathes with Strummerville at Glastonbury Festival and now One Love Festival Originally a Scratch production sung by Junior Murvin, the track’s cynical realism had helped it become a Punk anthem. At first, listen, Bob and Scratch were startled by Joe Strummer’s harsh bark, compared to
Murvin’s mellifluous falsetto. “It is different, but me like ’ow ’im feel it,” was Marley’s verdict, though. He liked the link between the two tribes of alienated, youth – Punks and Rastafari. “Punks are outcasts from society. So are the Rastas. So they are bound to defend what we defend,” Marley concluded. Shortly thereafter, named an underground social phenomenon Joe Strummer Foundation Mission Statement Our mission is to provide opportunities to musicians and support to projects around the world that create empowerment through music.

Sound System History
The sound system concept first became popular in the 1950s, in the ghettos of Kingston. DJs would load up a truck with a generator, turntables, and huge speakers and set up street parties. An important part of sound system culture is the sound clash, an organized battle between two or more systems. The culture of the Sound System was brought to the UK with the mass immigration of Jamaicans in the 1960’s and 70’s.
