During my studies in Jamaica, the Rastafari seed, sown in my consciousness from birth, germinated and was nurtured in the ” Land of Wood and Water ”
Since then my Rastafari journey has taken me over hills and vallies, over rocks and mountains into the rivers paying tribute to the Father of Creation, Mother Nature and all humanity.
