Nyabinghy (3) (Webmaster Column)

Dubroom Online - Edition November 11, 2007


WWW, November 11 2007 - Even though Nyabinghy technically isn't Reggae, and even though there are those within Rastafari who would prefer people not to play Reggae at all but to stay with playing the hand drums at Rasta grounations, the rhythm still serves as foundation for Reggae Music.

This is explained by none other than Mikey Dread in a documentary called "Deep Roots". The deep roots is the rhythm of the Rastaman, and the consciousness that he stands for.

Nyabinghy stands for chanting down Babylon. Reggae Music, at least a lot of it, stands for the same. Sure, this is because much Reggae was, is, and continues to be played by conscious Rasta's.

Give Thanks, One Love,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
