With over a half million albums sold worldwide, Christafari is the top selling Gospel Reggae artist of all-time. After over two decades, the groundbreaking band is stronger than ever…making history in 2013 when their latest album, “Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival” (Lion of Zion Entertainment), hit #1 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart.
But Christafari is more than a group of musical trailblazers. They consider themselves “Musicianaries” -- using their unique blend of traditional roots and contemporary dancehall reggae to proclaim an uncompromising message of hope and salvation to this lost generation.
Christafari went back to their roots in 2012 with the release of their first worship album in nearly 20 years. On “Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival,” Christafari reworks classic hymns, reinterprets many of today’s top worship anthems and gives fans a handful of original worship songs that truly capture the band’s signature sound.
The unexpected result was that the band made history when “Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival” hit #1 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart -- the first time ever for a Christian project to top that chart. Speaking of the band’s chart success, Mark Mohr stated: “We care a lot more about hearts than charts. Our passion is for souls, not sales and we only do concerts as a way to make converts and fulfill the great commission.”

Christafari has always been my favourite Reggae artist. He is revolutionizing the christian Reggae scene. Some of his songs do have that amatauer produced sound to it, but still amazing.
