Reggae, the King’s Music

I went to a unique area of the city to get this fab Reggae mural.

Artist: Adrian Hayles

When I found it, it was in a parking lot filled with cars. Yay, reflections!

I only knew basic history of Haile Selassie. However, if you are interested, as I was  you can read the BBC article: Rastafrian Beliefs Regarding Haile Selassie

Artist: Adrian Hayles

Moving on, it looks like Bob Marley leading into Haile Selassie …

    1. I went through a Reggae phase, I’m back into older rock, R&B and some of the new Rap.
      It really is a fab mural, and I did do some research about the Rastafarian movement. 😀

    1. Ah! Well, first off, I’ve never been to that part of Toronto. Toronto has cultural pockets, and they are named as such on street signs: ie Little Italy, Little Portugal, The Fashion District, The Film District, … this area would be Little Jamaica. Here you will find not just restaurants that serve up Jamaican cuisine, but music clubs, hairdressers, Jamaican food shops, Jamaican shops of many ilk. It was quite neat, and sad to say, condo development is taking over. My hope is that the cultural strip, will remain so, and flourish with all the new customers they will be getting. 😀 😀 xoxoxo

      1. Aha…. I believe most major cities have a ‘Little China’ somewhere amidst the strength of their ‘typical’ culture. But, to have many differing areas would be fascinating.
        I’ve just been reminded of the ‘Reflection’ we did for Toronto 100 years ago (actually it was in 2012) -https://abcofspiritalk.net/2012/06/20/toronto-canada-reflection/ –
        The Reflection speaks of the diversity of the city. Your explanation gives me so much more depth of understanding, which I didn’t really have…
        Well done to Toronto. 😀 😀

        1. I do remember that reflection. 😀 You were right and still are about all you had reflected upon.
          Your instinct was correct, and even though you had not included all possible understandings, you were, and remain on point. 😀
          I’m very lucky to live in a city that is a beacon for Light. 😀 xoxoxo
