The roots harmony vocals trio the Abyssinians was formed in 1968 by founding members Donald Manning, Bernard Collins and Linford Manning. It was in 1969 with their release "Satta Massagana" recorded on Coxson Dodd's Studio One label—a Rastafarian hymn based on the Ethiopian Amharic language, that launched them into the ranks of Reggae music greats. "Satta Massagana" became one of reggae's most popular songs; becoming an anthem that was heard on the radios, in the dancehalls and in the churches of Jamaica.
The Abyssinians vocal trio is touring America again. With Bernard Collins, Donald Mannings and David Morrison, this is a highly talented respected vocal group with deep spiritual vibrations, good intentions and a higher purpose. This is the vocal trio that produced the reggae national anthem – Satta Massagana. The Abyssinians are the roots of reggae music. "He will take us by the hand. And lead us to that wonderland. If you can't be good, be careful. And do the best you can. Yimasgan hula gize. Glory to Jah, let him be praised."
Perhaps the most “roots” and most talented exponents of reggae music historically known in the USA are the RASTAFARIANS, a group of gifted and dedicated singer/instrumentalists who have devoted their lives to Rasta music and the Rasta way of life. From The Grateful Dead to Taj Mahal, the RASTAFARIANS have shared stages with various and equally legendary acts, a testament to their once great popularity, and very promising comeback. The reunion of all five original members is indeed an exciting and positive one, setting fans old and new into a frenzy, with talks of a long-awaited new album in the works. Their collective experience spans continents and decades, yet brings them together in “One Love, One Heart, One I-nity”.
