The first Rasta Leonard Howell and the rise of Rastafarianism by Hélène Lee( )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Going far beyond the standard imagery of Rasta?ganja, reggae, and dreadlocks?this cultural history offers an uncensored vision of a movement with complex roots and the exceptional journey of a man who taught an enslaved people how to be proud and impose their culture on the world. In the 1920s Leonard Percival Howell and the First Rastas had a revelation concerning the divinity of Haile Selassie, king of Ethiopia, that established the vision for the most popular mystical movement of the 20th century, Rastafarianism. Although jailed, ridiculed, and treated as insane, Howell, also known as the Gong, established a Rasta community of 4,500 members, the first agro-industrial enterprise devoted to producing marijuana. In the late 1950s the community was dispersed, disseminating Rasta teachings throughout the ghettos of the island. A young singer named Bob Marley adopted Howell's message, and through Marley's visions, reggae made its explosion in the music world

Trench Town sehen und sterben : die Bob-Marley-Jahre by Hélène Lee( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dieses Buch erzählt die mythische und dramatische Geschichte des berühmt-berüchtigten schwarzen Ghettos Trench Town. Aus diesem Vorort von Kingston, Jamaika, kamen der Reggae und Bob Marley, die Rasta-Bewegung nahm dort ihren Ursprung. Als Schlafstadt im Westen von Kingston in den Dreissigerjahren gegründet, wurde Trench Town Ende der Fünfziger zur Bühne heftiger politischer Kämpfe. Zu jener Zeit tauchte Bob Marley in Trench Town auf und fand dort seine Inspiration: Er entlieh sich seine Texte bei den Leuten auf der Strasse, und manchmal bezahlte er sie sogar für einen Satz oder einen flotten Spruch. Die Kraft seiner Musik speiste sich aus dieser ganz besonderen Beziehung, die er zu Trench Town hatte. Heutzutage verschlechtert sich die Situation in Trench Town von Jahr zu Jahr. Hunderte von Morden machen für die vom Terror eingeschüchterten Bewohner ein normales Leben nicht mehr möglich. Die Überreste des Kolonialismus, der Kalte Krieg, das komplexe Geflecht des Drogenhandels, die CIA und der Einfluss gewisser Machthaber auf der Insel - all dies sind Gründe für die lebensgefährlichen Verhältnisse, die heute in Trench Town herrschen. Die finsteren Mächte, die die Welt beherrschen, haben mit ihren Spielen um Macht und Reichtum die unschuldige Bevölkerung als Geissel genommen. Die französische Journalistin Hélène Lee begab sich auf der Suche nach dem Mythos des Reggae und von Bob Marley nach Trench Town; sie erlebte ein Ghetto der Dritten Welt voller Gewalt, Drogen und Tod, fand dort aber auch Liebe und Frieden der Rasta-Philosophie

3 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bien inscrit sur le territoire de Barbès et dans la communauté maghrébine dont il est issu, ce groupe de onze copains algériens, marocains et français est lancé en 1995 et sort son premier disque chez Virgin, l'année suivante. Il mélange différentes musiques populaires du Maghreb à des influences rock ou reggae. L'ONB sait articuler animations de fêtes de quartiers et tournées de concerts. Ce groupe de musiciens est à géométrie variable : au Zénith, il se nomme Le Diwaan de Béchar, avec Michel Pétry (batterie), Ahmed Bensidhoune (percussions), Alain Debiossat (saxophone), Olivier Louvel (guitare), Kamel Tenfiche (percussions/chant) et Fathellah Ghoggal (guitare). Mais on peut aussi le retrouver sous forme de trio avec Aziz Sahmaoui (chant), Jean-Baptiste Ferré et Toufik Mimouni (claviers), ou encore en duo : Fateh Benlala (chant) et Youcef Boukella (basse) en compagnie d'un maître du Chaâbi, dans un restaurant. Parfois, il prête la main aux chanteuses berbères, les B'net Houariyat
