was born Robert Nesta Marley in a small rural village in Jamaica and rose to become the most popular and beloved reggae artist in history. Standing a mere 5' 4" Marley was a charismatic sensitive soul who had a gift for translating the pain and politics of suppressed people into uplifting songs of deliverance. Like a messiah from the third world, he delivered messages of love andunity and pushed the underground sounds of reggae music onto the world stage.
Born of mixed heritage - his father a Jamaican born white man of British nationality and his mother a black Jamaican - Marley was ostracized as a child and struggled to come to terms with the duality of his racial identity. His conversion to the Rastafarian religion, a faith originating from early Christianity and Judaismin Egypt and Ethiopia, helped him find truth in a world filled with injustice and racism.
Influenced by popular African American groups like Curtis Mayfield's "The Impressions," Bob Marley joined with childhood friends to form The Wailers, singing "ska" and slow tempo "rock steady" songs. The group dressed in matching suits and maintained the clean-cut look reminiscent of Motown groups of thatera. After becoming a Rastafarian and reforming the group years later as "Bob Marley and The Wailers" Marley began to emerge as a prophetic musician promoting peace and higher consciousness.
At 32 years old, Marley was diagnosed with skin cancer on his toe and refused amputation because of his religious beliefs. In just four short years, cancer had consumed him, spreading to his brain, liver, lungs,and stomach - killing him at the age of thirty-six.
Bob Marley is one of the most successful artists to come from the Caribbean and is revered as a legend of reggae music and the Rastafarian faith.
