This is not just another voice in the wilderness.

Ras Daniel, is a controversial figure within the reggae world. First time listeners automatically, mistakenly assume he is from the islands.

Ras Daniel is an American Born, Jewish, Rastafarian of Eastern European Decent, currently living in Massachusetts.

His musical stylings stem from a growing frustration within the current trends of global domination by greedy, corporate interests. Being in the "belly of the beast" illuminated many insights into the true spiritual nature of mankind.

His music reflects these insights and calls out for a rising up of all peoples of the earth to stand firm in consciousness, positive action, and upright living.
