Not quite Ras Trent level of parody, I think they are being serious in their way. Plenty of these kind of dudes around coming from a dancehall/hiphop kind of angle. Saw they were from the Okanogan which is a region a few hours from here but looks like they are from the American side to the south which is similarly named, kind of a rural, sparsely populated, economically challenged area of north central Washington state between Seattle and Spokane.

I worked in that area for a few years in the late '70's for the state game department & the group looks like the youngest kids of the hippies that flocked to the Okanogon in the late '60's & later. I think they believe what they're doing. The river in the vid is the Columbia & they're heading north.

Ha ha that music is pretty bad but I guess they have as much right to try and make reggae as a couple germans sitting in front of their computer.

Everybody has their own stereotypes & no one can see what's inside a man's heart.

Does every Rastafari dress the same & talk with the same accent ?
Look the same & wave flags ?

Does every man smoke weed ?

At the end of the day we can only judge the music.
That's all that count's.

Remember these movies .......

Here's probably more than you care to know about Essential I, the lead in the vid. From a cdbaby write up on their website, it seems like his heart & head are into it: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/essentiali
