Reggae pioneers Christafari have returned to their worship roots with the release of their new album, ‘Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival’ (Lion of Zion Entertainment).
Christafari pioneered the genre of Gospel Reggae with their first album,1993’s ‘Reggae Worship Volume 1,’ which catapulted them onto the Billboard charts. On ‘Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival,’ Christafari reworks classic Hymns, reinterprets many of today’s top Worship anthems and gives us a handful of original worship songs that truly capture the band’s signature sound.
For the first part of the recording and songwriting for the project, they headed off to the Hawaiian Islands and worked with established Praise and Worship leaders that are experienced in incorporating Reggae into their worship. “Being on the Hawaiian Islands was a blast!” Said Mohr. “It’s the perfect location for inspiration. It was great working with other worship pastors and translating Christafari’s unique style into a congregational worship experience.”
Ministry Statement: “Christafari commits to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ clearly through music, the spoken word and our lives, as illustrated in the Holy Bible, in order to win souls for Christ’s kingdom in accordance with His great commission. We desire to lead a new generation of believers into worship and to edify and build up the body of Christ while providing a Biblically sound musical alternative.” -Pastor Mark Mohr
With over a half million albums sold worldwide, Christafari is the all-time top selling Gospel Reggae artist. The band continues to tour worldwide, with upcoming concert dates scheduled across the USA as well as New Caledonia, Fiji, Brazil, Belize, Guatemala and the Virgin Islands.
