Born in 1945, Bob Marley would’ve turned 75 in 2020. Unfortunately, the reggae legend passed away from cancer in 1981.
His family is paying tribute to him this year. They’d planned a number of live events to celebrate him, but the Covid pandemic prevented that. However, that hasn’t stopped Ziggy Marley from playing his dad’s music in a socially-distanced setting.
This hour-long, 11-song performance features Ziggy’s band on a soundstage equipped with plexiglass dividers. Several of the musicians don masks.
Marley’s first son Ziggy is inspired, channeling his famous father from beginning to end. “Exodus” is particularly timely with its calls for justice and equity.
