Holding On To Jah details the history of Jamaica, Reggae music, and the Rasta movement, bringing into focus the critical roles played by Marcus Garvey, and the 225th Emperor of Ethiopia, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie, Reggae music, and the Rastafarian culture. Candid interviews with some of Reggae's greatest singers and Musicians, tell a collective story of the merging of the Rasta ideology with music that combined island and African rhythms and how songs from people like Bob Marley, The Congos, Israel Vibration, Culture, and others, have brought forth a positive message and spread the "Rastaman vibration" throughout the world.The film is a testament to their faith, which for them often meant being disowned by family, shunned by friends and dispossessed by society. We embark on a journey to the heart of the Rasta movement and learn how against great odds, a message of salvation and redemption was born. With courage, tenacity, and faith, the Rastafarian movement emerged, struggled, and continues to thrive. Through all their tribulations they continue to stand firm in their convictions, HOLDING ON TO JAH.
