Backstage at Jamaica’s Joyous Bob Marley Birthday Celebrations

Reggae’s biggest stars celebrate the late singer’s life with a weekend of performances both massive and intimate

Kingston, Jamaica, paid tribute to its most famous son this weekend, celebrating what would have been the 70th birthday of Bob Marley with a series of live events that featured the singer’s sons, former collaborators and the island’s newest wave of socially conscious reggae performers. Saturday night, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley headlined Redemption Live!, a free show that attracted several thousand to Kingston’s downtown waterfront. And on Friday, the Bob Marley Museum — Bob’s former home at 56 Hope Road — was the venue for a series of informal jam sessions and performances featuring “Marley 70 ambassadors” Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid and No-Maddz.

Damian Marley took the opportunity to address this news during his performance on Saturday night, calling for full-on legalization. Read more
