24 January 2017 Blogroll


Niyabinghi chanting[1] typically includes recitation of the Psalms, but may also include variations of well-known Christian hymns and adopted by Rastafarians. The rhythms of these chants were eventually an influence of popular ska, rocksteady and reggae music.

Niyabinghi chants include:
“400 Million Blackman””400 Years” (its lyrics influenced Peter Tosh’s “400 Years”)”Babylon In I Way””Babylon Throne Gone Down” (arranged by Bob Marley to “Rastaman Chant” in 1973)”Banks of the River”
