Zion Gate

"If tomorrow I was leaving to Zion, I wouldn't stay a minute more..." The biblical mountain of Zion lay close to the ancient city of Jerusalem, and somehow slowly but surely became a symbol for the 'world to come'. The rasta faith pictures it as the site of a new Jerusalem in the African country of Ethiopia, a future spot of milk and honey for righteous dreads. As an illustration, here's a sizzling roots reggae and dub ten pack about the desire to arrive there as soon as possible. Get ready to ride that lion...
