Reportage | Rastafari | Rainer Waelder Fotografie | Fotograf & Fotojournalist Freiburg
Meet Sidney 'Joseph' Clue, 69, percussionist and founding member of the Rastafari religious group Twelve Tribes of Israel. He is one of the few Rastafarians who has actually lived in Ethiopia for a short period - until he was kicked out of the country due to his illegal status. It was very touching hearing his stories and seeing the tears running down his cheeks when he talked about the promised land and the odyssey and struggle of wanting to live where he says he belongs. Unfortunately he was never able to return to Ethiopia. Before I left, I asked him what his biggest wish in life was: „I want to go home!“ Joseph also worked with Bob Marley on Exodus in 1976.
