Tribute To Robert Nesta Marley

Only a handful of artists can lay claim to popularizing an entire music genre.
Singer songwtiter/guitgarist Bob Marley is one. His name is synonymous with the indigenous jamaican offbeat music of reggae, a local genre he took from his beloved island homeland to the world. The first reggae superstat, the dreadlocked, ganja-smoking Marley became a musical ambassador not only for the rhythmic Caribbean music that he helped create, but also for themes of peace, revolution, poverty, spirituality, love and the Rastafarian philosophy.
