Bob Marley took reggae to its highest heights and was one of the greatest performers the world has ever known. At the peak of his career, he sang out to the oppressed and downtrodden and became a powerful inspiration to anyone who believed music could change the world. Even today, the message and music of Bob Marley continues to uplift people around the globe.
The Marley story doesn’t end there. Inspired by their father, the sons and daughters of Bob Marley carry on his work in their own unique ways.
The earliest sign that music would play a major role in the lives of the Marley children came by way of the Melody Makers, a group that included a young Sharon, Cedella, Ziggy, and Stephen Marley. Later, after Ziggy and Stephen embarked on solo careers, other Marley offspring took to music and other ventures, further promoting the Marley message of justice and freedom. Sons Damian, Julian, and Ky-Mani Marley have made their mark in reggae and hip-hop. Cedella Marley moved on to become CEO of her father’s estate while publishing numerous children’s books. Sharon continues to advocate for the principles championed by her father.
Marley: A Family Legacy tells the story of a new generation of Marleys, each an artist in his and her own right, and each with the same commitment to telling the truth through music the Marley way.
