Bob Marley

Transcript: Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley, OM (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican singer-songwriter and musician. He was the guitarist and lead singer for the ska, reggae band Bob Marley & The Wailers (1963–1981). Marley is credited with helping spread both Jamaican music and the Rastafari movement to a worldwide audience. Rastafari movement Religion In 1963, Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh, Junior Braithwaite, Beverley Kelso, and Cherry Smith formed a ska and rocksteady group, calling themselves "The Teenagers". They later changed their name to "The Wailing Rudeboys", then to to "The Wailers". Bob Marley was a member of the Rastafari movement, whose culture was a key element in the development of reggae. Bob Marley became an ardent proponent of Rastafari, taking their music out of the socially deprived areas of Jamaica and onto the international music scene. Bob Marley ‘s Mother Bob Marley His father, Norval Sinclair Marley, was a Jamaican of mixed English and Syrian-Jewish descent whose family came from Sussex, England. In 1955, when Bob Marley was 10 years old, his father died of a heart attack at age 70. BY : Rafael Alejandro Logroño Feliz 2010-5994 Marley's music was heavily influenced by the social issues of his homeland, and he is considered to have given voice to the specific political and cultural nexus of Jamaica. His best hits include : "I Shot the Sheriff", "No Woman, No Cry", "Could You Be Loved", "Stir It Up", "Jamming" , "One Love" "Three Little Birds", as well as the posthumous releases "Buffalo Soldier" and "Iron Lion Zion". Bands Cedella Malcolm Marley Booker (July 23, 1926 – April 8, 2008) was the mother of Jamaican reggae musician Bob Marley . In 1966, Marley married Rita Anderson, and moved near his mother's residence in Wilmington, Delaware in the United States for a short time, during which he worked as a DuPont lab assistant and on the assembly line at a Chrysler plant, under the alias Donald Marley. Though raised in the Catholic tradition, Marley became captivated by Rastafarian beliefs in the 1960s, when away from his mother's influence. In July 1977, Marley was found to have a type of malignant melanoma under the nail of one of his toes. Contrary to urban legend, this lesion was not primarily caused by an injury during a football match in that year, but was instead a symptom of the already existing cancer. Marley turned down doctors' advice to have his toe amputated, citing his religious beliefs. Despite his illness, he continued touring and was in the process of scheduling a world tour in 1980. Health problems Biography Bob Marley ‘s Father ‘’ My father was a white and my mother was black. Them call me half-caste or whatever.’’ Marley's music The Rastafarian movement is a religious movement that believes that Haile Selassie I is the third incarnation of Jah, abbreviation of Yahweh, after Melchizedek and Jesus. Members of the Rastafari movement are known as Rastas, or Rastafari. .
