Since its inception, Christafari has been a trailblazer, pioneering a new genre of Gospel Reggae in the U.S. and throughout the world. With their blend of traditional Roots, mixed with contemporary Dancehall Reggae, they proclaim a positive message of hope to this generation. Christafari (pronounced CHRIST-AH-FAR-EYE, in Greek, the original language of the New Testament, Christafari is the name given to "a group of people who collectively represent Christ.") was founded in 1989 by songwriter, producer, and lead vocalist, Mark Mohr. Raised in a Christian family, Mark strayed from his Godly upbringing and, during his teens, became involved in hard drugs and alcohol. As an answer to many prayers, the Lord delivered Mark from his addictions at a Christian camp at the age of 17. After serious prayer, God impressed on his heart to start the first Christian reggae band in America.
"The best advice I was ever given was to go to Bible College so I could be theologically and doctrinally sound," says Mark. He studied at Biola University in Los Angeles, majoring in Christian Education. During his years at Biola, the group began to take shape as Mark wrote songs for Christafari's first and second albums. Now an ordained Pastor, Mark has spent over thirteen years ministering and performing, bringing a unique brand of gospel reggae to nearly every state and some twenty countries around the world.
The popular Christafari album "WordSound&Power" is presented here in its dub form. It contains creative & ambient stripped down instrumental mixes of songs found on Christafari's "WordSound&Power" album plus a few bonus tracks. One of these bonus tracks is the never before released- complete vocal version of the Christafari Dancehall song Babylon Has Fallen. Featured here also is a completely re-mixed version of Why You Ago Look, introducing new samples of Haile Selassie speaking on sin, forgiveness and why he chose to follow the Lord Jesus Christ.
This project was engineered and mastered by the original Dub scientist himself, Jim Fox. In the last two decades Jim has proven himself to be a driving force in this genre. His mixing credits include legendary Dub albums for the likes of "Black Uhuru"," Israel Vibration", "Yellow Man", "Big Mountain" "Gregory Isaacs", "The Roots Radics" & "Culture". He mixed each of these dubs in one take.
