This article aims at revealing some ideas brought to life by Hélène Lee, the author of The First Rasta. The French journalist and world traveler has lived a patchwork quilt existence, traveling Jamaica and Africa, which serves her analysis of the Jamaican belief system called Rastafarianism quite well. She has the perspective to see Jamaica from the inside without losing herself in its mystery and magic. That's no small thing. Her story revolves around Leonard Howell, whom she presents as the first real prophet of Rastafarianism. She touches on history, language, art, and culture along the way.The First Rasta is an ambitious project and an unqualified success, though the story shifts perspective dramatically once Howell's main following disintegrates. By presenting the high points of Lee's narrative in an abbreviated form, I hope to shine light on the specific aspects she stresses the most in her story. Interested readers can look to the book to see them expanded in full technicolor.

The Toasters - 2 Tone Army.mp3

The Toasters was one of the first American bands in the third wave of ska, and may be the longest active ska band in the United States, although singer Robert Hingley is the only original member still in the band.
They have released nine studio albums, most of them on Moon Ska Records. The Toasters experienced a small degree of commercial success in the late 1990s due to the popularity of third wave ska in North America. Their song "Two-Tone Army" is also the theme song for the Nickelodeon show KaBlam! (credited as the Moon Ska Stompers) and they recorded background music in many TV commercials, including for America Online and Coca-Cola. Their song "Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down" appeared in the pilot episode of the animated series Mission Hill. They still perform around the world, and in 2007 they celebrated their 25th Anniversary with a new studio album, One More Bullet.

This film is a strange confab of celebrity travel souvenir and retrospective of the Rastafarian movement on the occasion of Bob Marley's 60th birthday.Much of the surviving Marley clan is featured here — Ziggy, Rita, Cedelia, Damian and Julian — there's music and interviews. And more interviews — interviews with lots of people who just happened to show up for Bob's birthday celebration down in Ethiopia. There's Danny Glover, Angelique Kidjo, Lauren Hill and others but the participants here seem to be fighting over Marley's legacy as much as celebrating it.But the title of the film is 'Africa Unite' and NOT 'A Posthumous Celebration of Bob Marley's 60th Birthday'. Though the film doesn't come together as a cohesive narrative or a document of an important event, it does feature a few good, informative moments for people unfamiliar with Marley and/or the Rastafarian movement.Notably, Haile Selassie's 1963 address to the U.N. and the pan-African movement are addressed after the 2nd half-hour, the same speech that Marley put to music and recorded as the song "War".But the relationship of these celebrities and the search for human rights, cultural development and education get somewhat muddled as the filmmakers wander back and forth from hotel conference-rooms to the streets of Addis Ababa apparently seeking some sort of grilled-cheese manifestation of the departed musician. There's plenty of archival footage and information about Haile Selassie, but those who are really interested in the subculture and Marley's impact might do better to see Jeremy Marre's 'Rebel Music' (2001), Awake Zion (2005), The Promised Ship (2000) or any of the many Wailers concert videos.
