Reggae Music Videos For Italists | Vegans | Vegetarians

Many of you may know that members of the Rastafari community follow a #plantbased diet, with many choosing to refer to themselves as Italists when it comes to dietary and lifestyle practices.

Some Tunes For You Vegetarians

     With this in mind, I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite conscious reggae tunes that carry a vegetarian message of some kind, as well as a couple of new tunes I discovered while putting this post together.

     As a red-head, I myself am known as a ginger, so what better song to start with than Alika & Nueva Alianza's "Jengibre." This band has been one of my favorites for many years, hailing out of Argentina, she occasionally plays shows in the USA and Mexico.

     I had never even heard of Baba Ras until making this post, having discovered him by searching YouTube for "vegetarian reggae." That search led me to "Real Vegetarian," a truly infectious song with a valid point. In many Asian countries there is no word for "vegan," as you are either vegetarian or not, making ordering at a restaurant very simple without a long convoluted conversation.

     Sidenote: As an Ital chef, I must say Baba Ras looks to be cutting those cucumbers a bit too thick.

     British-born Macka B is a legend, and "Wha Ma Eat" is a perfect example of his very upbeat positive style. I've followed Macka B for many years, and he is definitely the undisputed King of kid-friendly PG-rated reggae music. This song demonstrates the wide variety one can have on a purely #plantbased diet, but I'm left with some doubts about Macka B's jogging routine.

     Black Uhuru, a classic band with an everchanging lineup, is responsible for this tune. In my opinion, Michael Rose is the most powerful singer the band ever had, and even "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," a fairly simple song is given depth through his conviction on stage.

     I originally followed Perfect Giddimani's career with great hope for the future, and songs like "Handcart Bwoy" demonstrated his willingness not to overly embrace ego, a dangerous drug in Jamaica. The song is about his roots as a handcart vegetable seller in Jamaica, and it celebrates the allure of his simple and humble life.

     Bugle is a conscious artist with many songs I enjoy, and "Rasta Party" is a perfect example of how it's possible to have a fun party without alcohol, flesh, or foolish vibes. All drinks, drugs, guns, foolishness, and flesh, shall be turned away at the gates with respect.

     Lutan Fyah needs no introduction, and his lengthy career is testament to his appeal. "No Weapon" is one of my favorite Lutan Fyah songs of all time, and I can relate to this dream all too well of wanting a plot of land and some tools to get things started. He sings of the uselessness of weaponry when his money could be better spent on positive things.

     Macka B is back with Health is Wealth," and if don't know already, Macka likes to sing about food, and I can't blame him, but I like to cook much more than sing about food. This song carries a simple message that the Ital lifestyle is a healthy one and true wealth, and it's bangin' tune to play while your cooking up some Ital food.

Great ital selection, Bredda! And i just watched half of them videos..😀
One point of constructive criticism also for all Vegans:
Use & consume less plastic-wrapped veggies & fruits.Plastic packaging of especially fruits & veggies is unnecessary and harmful to all Life on Earth.
A paper bag should do it...or you have your own cotton bag e.g.
If the supermarket does not offer it, "inspire" them 😉
Bless Up

Good advice @luca1777 . "Health is wealth and ital is vital". Nice tune. 🎶

Respect @fruityfruitz & represent that plastic-free style 😉

Respect😃

🙏 Give Thanx 🇯🇲

Give thanks, many countries are waking up to the mess of plastic bags. Even here, when I present my cloth bag, they often put everything in a plastic bag then put it in my bag, creating an awkward situation. !ENGAGE 40

When it happens like that, i tell them directly "...no,no,i got my own bag, thanks, less plastic, please think about Mother Earth/nature/environment..."
And i say it loud (still friendly) so all the people around me hear it 🤗

I love pirate food!!!! I'll never forget picking apples from a roadside tree with Dad once . It was huge and there were sooo many apples. Dad's up the tree chucking em to me and little Jarrah, who was about 4 and kept missing them, so they were splattering over the road. He was giggling his head off and I was screaming at Dad to stop... there were apples everywhere. Now that road is so busy you can't even stop safely. A beautiful memory. My Dad is the original fruit pirate.. he'd steal fruit from anywhere to wails of us saying DAAAAAADDDDD

It's a small world after all, and my family has the same reaction, although Monkey-B has been known to encourage such behavior. !ENGAGE 50

I should stop by here more often. Some interesting reads. And I will just tune in as I became a vegetarian at the age of 14 :).

Thank you indeed for stopping by, and I hope this tracklist makes you feel even more reassured about your dietary choices. !ENGAGE 15

All excellent songs. Makes me think about going ital. I do love me some milk though. Tried the soy milk (yuck) but tried oat milk the other week and really liked it! I don't eat much red meat anyway, never cared for it. Mostly eat chicken, pork, and fish.

You have really got me thinking about trying out a vegan diet. Will have to wait until I consume all the meat in my fridge. Would not want to waste it!

Just think of all the new music you could enjoy on this new diet. We don't partake in the plant milks too much, and the only time I really crave a milk-like replacement is in my morning coffee. One negative aspect of going Ital is that you're gonna get a lot less calories out of more amounts of food.

If you're in the USA, this is a killer, because farm subsidies support meat, dairy soy, and corn, making them much cheaper than eating a veg diet. Luckily in Cambodia there are no major farm subsidies, so my Ital diet was much cheaper than that of my meat-eater friends. In fact most of the countries I've traveled to in the world have a big vegetarian scene, but only because of poverty.

Here's an approach that might work better for you, we'll call it the Cambodian approach. Cambodian people eat meat in every meal, but in very tiny amounts because it is so expensive for them. Maybe the smaller amounts of meat is a better choice for you, but unfortunately you'll find no hipster scene for this diet. !ENGAGE 40

Always enjoy listening to Reggae music, will never follow the vegan form, have great respect for those who do it is simply in choice.

Spending money on a farm and tools makes more sense than guns and rivers of blood, reggae concept of living in a harmonious lifestyle is another admired trait.

To each their own as I always say. I've always felt what comes out of your mouth is much more important than what goes in it. Self-reliance is key, and even as an Italist, I admire those who are willing to hunt or fish for their meal rather than buy it from a market. !ENGAGE 30

Going Vegan or Vegetarian is great! I have turned to vegetarian for now and will try to move to complete plan based diet very soon. You post is so motivating for those working in this direction. Great one. Cheers!

These certainly are some motivational videos, especially Baba Ras. Thanks for stopping by. !ENGAGE 20
