All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Nyahbinghi was Ras Michael's second album, following the four extended tracks that made up Dadawah-Peace & Love.

Nyahbinghi was Ras Michael's second album, following the four extended tracks that made up Dadawah-Peace & Love. Michael his real name is George Michael Henry specializes in the traditional Jamaican rasta drumming style known as nyahbinghi, and is the obvious commercial heir apparent to Count Ossie, whose groundbreaking Grounation set with tenor saxophonist Cedric Brooks put this odd and moving genre on the musical map. Michael sticks pretty close to the traditional on this set, although on other releases he has grafted mainstream reggae, funk, rock and even electronica into the mix. There isn't a whole lot of stylistic variation here, but the overall effect of the slow, pronounced drum patterns is definitely soothing and trance inducing, but hardly conducive to the dancehall. The most striking track is "Rise Jah Jah Children," which builds around the refrain to "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," a big international hit for the Tokens. Trojan released Nyahbinghi packaged with the slightly more experimental Dadawah on a single disc in 1998.
