Analogue Gallery Lends its prints to 5th Annual Bob Marley Birthday Tribute - February 6th, 2010
Saturday, February 6th, 2010
A Concert Fundraiser to benefit the Yonge St. Mission!
On Saturday February 6th, 2010, International music star Bob Marley would have been 65 years old if he had not succumbed to cancer on Monday May 11, 1981 at the young age 36-years-old, a special cast of Toronto Musicians, Djs and MCs, celebrate Bob Marley's legacy of music, peace and love.
Today almost anywhere in the world when the name Bob Marley is mentioned,it is recognized by old and young. He remains enormously popular and well known all over the world. Reggae's most transcendent and iconic figure, Bob Marley was the first Jamaican artist to achieve international superstardom, in the process introducing the music of his native island nation to the far-flung corners of the globe.
Marley's music gave voice to the day-to-day struggles of the Jamaican experience, vividly capturing not only the plight of the country's impoverished and oppressed but also the devout spirituality that remains their source of strength.
