ALESSANDRO SIMONETTI - I & I

$60.00
Through expansive storytelling and presentation — including a limited edition hardcover book, exclusive digital elements, and live programming — the I & I project examines how the Rastafari faith is being expressed through young, modern cultural leaders such as Addis Pablo, Jah9, Donisha Prendergast, Yaadcore, Kabaka Pyramid, and I-Nation. And I & I serves as a meditation on the Rastafari faith: "the livity" (way of life), the music, the spiritual practices, and the philosophy as expressed in a contemporary form set against the current backdrop of Jamaica and that nation's history. The title originates in Rasta semantics whereby the pronouns you and me are replaced by “I and I” to express oneness among people and a means of signaling a direct connection to God.
