AllMusic Review by

Groundnation: Indomitable Spirit Of The Rastafari celebrates the groundnation gathering, a Rastafarian ritual that features nyahbingi music and long, meditative intervals of drumming and chanting. Nyahbingi became incorporated into reggae's mainstream as Rastafari became the genre's predominant ideology, and groups like Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelations of Rastafari and Ras Michael & The Sons Of Negus grew in popularity. This album features tracks from both of these groups, as well as songs from upcoming groups like Culture and The Wailing Soul, making Groundnation: Indomitable Spirit of The Rastafari as historic as it is entertaining.
