Jah Shepherd in One Love: Word Sounds & Powah

One Love: Word Sounds & Powah

2009 NR

The late Jah Bones lays out the Rastafari agenda in this trio of documentaries filmed in London and Nottingham in the early 1990s, employing music, poems and insightful interviews from interpreters of the Rasta religion. Highlights include a closer look at the sacred drumming ritual of nyabinghi; an examination of Rastafari history that stretches all the way back to 400 B.C.; and a memorable performance of the Naturalites' "Picture on the Wall."
