The early Rastas from Europe to Jamaica
by , , , min., ,
Memories of Ras Ibi’s life journey into Rastafari. As a young “lion” heading out of Sweden he started to visit Jamaica regularly since the early eighties. He was amongst the early European Rastafari (..if not the first one) that the Elders in Jamaica have ever met.
Ras Ibi’s experiences and testimonies are precious to over-stand those historical moments that shaped the internationalization of Rastafari. He was a regular and long-term visitor of the blessed island since 1981 to 1995 when after he Repatriated to Ethiopia.
