i had posted aswad's "rainbow culture", a tune i just love, but quickly deleted it as i don't think it actually mentions every tribe...

adam, i'm at work right now so i can't take a listen, but the ones i can't remember hearing in the tune are Levi, Judah, Dan. i think they mention the prophet Gad but not sure. it is quite likely you are right though--i'll have a listen when i get home. been too long since i pulled that vinyl out.

either way, i have always really liked this tune!

great! it's always a bit embarrassing when i find i've been hearing the wrong lyrics; i've always heard it as : purple--the color of the priestly men/priestly one.

can you help any with where they mention Levi, Judah & Dan?

i'm sure this would be easier for me if i knew the relations of the colors to names, etc...

tia, ras!

wow--yeah, thanks so much ital kemar.

again, i was hearing things like "the judges dem" and "yahuda/jahuda rastafari"...should have known better i guess. i'm laughing at myself now that i see the lyrics written out. you live & learn, and hopefully, love.
