Conscious crooners Lutan Fyah and Jesse Royal, reggae popster Chris Martin and “original bad gyal” Ce’cile — all exceedingly well-traveled and beloved in their concentric reggae/dancehall circles — round out the lineup.

About Bob Marley

Reggae’s most transcendent and iconic figure, Bob Marley was the first Jamaican artist to achieve international superstardom, in the process introducing the music of his native island nation to the far-flung corners of the globe.

Marley’s music gave voice to the day-to-day struggles of the Jamaican experience, vividly capturing not only the plight of the country’s impoverished and oppressed but also the devout spirituality that remains their source of strength.

Backed by his all-star band the Wailers, Marley delivered classics in the ska era of the early ’60s, all but invented roots music with ’70s albums like Catch a Fire, and offered millions of listeners an entry point to reggae with his posthumous best-of collection, 1984′s Legend.

His songs of faith, devotion, and revolution created a legacy that continues to live on not only through the music of his extended family but also through generations of artists around the world touched by his genius.
