S ( of the Ancients – Wise Up, Vol.4 (

The Context:

The paradisiac island of Jamaica, the peaceful hypnotic sounds of Reggae Music and the Herb smoking dreadlocked Rastaman are indissociable in the public's mind, but most people don't realize that for the most part of last century, the members of the Rastafari Movement in Jamaica have been subjected to violent repression and discrimination by the Jamaican Government and Establishment.

In April 2017, the Jamaican Government apologized officially for the Coral Garden Massacre in 1963 (1). Due to their exclusion from employment and constant persecution for decades, the survivors are now Elders, living in terrible condition, with many suffering health issues.

The Music:

Sounds of the Ancients is a concept developed by Ras Flako Tafari, owner of Wisemind Publications and Flako Hi-Power Sound System, author and respected member of the Rastafari Community in Jamaica, as a way to raise funds for the Rastafari Elders in Jamaica.

The voices of the "Ancients" Ras Joslyn, Jenie, Bongo Dean, Bongo Jack, Bongo Brissett, Bongo Iah are set to instrumentals created by several music producers from France, Jamaica, Brazil and Spain: Warriah Steppa, Itekted, Leo Roots, Pot of Gold, resulting in 11 tracks with powerful and bewitching rhythms that convey the message of Rastafarian wisdom.

To fulfill the Rastafari Creed: "Let the hungry be fed, the aged protected, the naked clothed, the sick nourished, the infants cared for", all proceeds from sales go to support the Rastafari Elders in need in Jamaica, in terms of housing and healthcare.
