It turns out that that braid’s relaxed figure is stronger than the force exerted by the rude boy pie on the street where he lives.
Mexico City- Gangs and poverty surround the community of Kingston, Jamaica, where Bob Marley grew up, but there is no hatred or pain there. He decided to write to Smile, Love, Sunshine and Birds.
The musician died at the age of 36. Although thin and without obvious power, 40 years after he left another dimension, the relaxed figure of that braid proved to be stronger than the power exerted by the rude boy pie on the street where he lived.
Marley is the biggest representative of reggae music, combining ska, rock, pop, R&B, soul music and Rastafarian songs, which seems to be his own blood: his father is a white captain, he attracted the woman of color Cedella, is A descendant of the Cromantee tribe, which rebelled against slavery. When she had to take care of her little child by herself, she was only 18 years old, and the man immediately abandoned her and decided to move to Kingston to create a better future for herself.
Marley knows how to adapt to a neighborhood full of poverty and get along well with all his neighbors, and even has a nickname: Tuff Gong. That is what he called the future record company.
But this kind of intimacy did not lead to violent or illegal activities, but to artistic expression, which began when he discovered his love for ska, which was the popular music on the island at that time.
He formed a vocal group with his childhood friends and even recorded some original songs, such as “Simmer Down”, which immediately connected with his slum dwellers and infused his band The Wailers with vitality.
By 1966, Marley, who was only 21 years old, had been admired by local producers, and his life was going well because he fell in love with his wife Rita Anderson. However, his mother (who has moved to the United States) insisted that he follow in her footsteps.
In the United States, people of color have limited opportunities, and this does not persuade Marley, who has returned to China, to look for something that will change his life: God visited him.
The myth says that the activist Marcus Garvey urged his African-American followers to look to Africa and told them that the coronation of the black king would be a sign of the Messiah on the road.
In 1930, many people crowned the last emperor of Ethiopia, Ras Tafari, as a sacred symbol, and in his honor established the Rastafarian sect, which has thousands of people in Jamaica. Obtained extraordinary power a mile away. This is why his wife Rita visited the country in 1966. After returning to China, she guided him to adopt the religion, which was related to her beliefs and theories about political criticism and social justice.
He also adopted aesthetics, which indicated that his followers should have their hair cut before they saw the decay of Babylon. Cannabis is an herb that leads to insights. Therefore, it is sacred.
His homeland is no longer interested in happy music, and let reggae playing replace reggae music, which makes the rhythm that Marais dreams of is widely spread around the world.
The weepers succeeded in arousing interest in the Caribbean islands and even fascinated Johnny Nash, who took them to the UK tour as the opening performance, but they were by no means a safe choice.
One afternoon in 1972, they appeared with producer Chris Blackwell. They spent all their money in London before returning to Kingston. They proposed that if he recorded an album for him in advance .
The founder of Blackwell (Island Records), Blackwell (Island Records) powered U2 and gave them £4,000 to leave him alone. Unexpectedly, four months later, he received a legendary album: “Catch a Fire”, which is considered to be a reflection of Marley’s brilliant performance in the new type of merger.
Although the organization has made adjustments to influence the American public, the idol readily agreed to this, but at the time, the material was ignored by the popularity list and only 14,000 copies were sold. It’s time to give it value.
Reporter David Sinclair pointed out: “He did the Beatles’ first album “Please, Please Me” for the Reggae Band ten years ago, and did it for pop music.”
This solid reggae music material has continuity in Burnin’ (1973) and shines internationally: “Stand up, stand up” and “I shoot the sheriff”. The latter was covered by Eric Clapton, and unexpectedly, the British rock star won his first championship in the United States.
Natty Dread (1974) and Rastaman Vibration (1976) followed closely, but as Marley became the most influential Jamaican, he was also seen as a political threat. Because of his disdain for power, he became the target of an attack in 1976 before the free “Smile Jamaica” concert organized by the government. Although they both survived, he was shot in his home and his wife and manager were also injured.
After the attack, Marley decided to get up and walk onto the stage to show that no one could subdue him, but after being injured, he left Jamaica for a period of time until he played in the peace show again in 1978.
The last years of the interpreters for “Satisfy My Soul”, “Sunshine” and “Exodus” were full of creativity and debauchery: he slept very little, looking for all the women he wanted, as if he felt himself ‘S life is about to end. To the end.
The religion that exalted his artistic beliefs shortened his lifespan because it did not allow him to follow the recommended treatments for cancer that attacked him. He does not allow amputation and continues to tour the United States.
After fainting in that country, the doctor told him that the cancer had spread to the lungs, liver and brain, so it was no longer treatable and could only survive for a few weeks. He died on May 11, 1981, but his music and body became eternal.
Not everything is love
Marley even received the recognition of the UN Peace Medal, but in recent years there have been controversies questioning his honor.
Many people appeared in his ex-wife’s book “No Woman, No Cry: My Life with Bob Marley” (2004), in which he described many of his adventures and a little respect for marriage . It is said that Cindy Breakspeare, Miss World of Jamaica, is the last lover in his life.
Among his recognized children, several are also excellent in music, such as Ziggy, Stephen and Damian.
The singer also fell in love with football, no matter where he travels, he is practicing football.
