Transcript: Bob Marley background Bob Marley was born in the Northern Jamaica just outside of a small town named St. Ann, in an area named Nine Miles. Bob was brought to kingston by his father who said he was going there for an education. He was found living with an elderly couple and not in school. He started a band called "The Wailers", with Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh and Junior Braithwaite. The first recording the band produced together was,"Simmer Down."They were very succesfull, 80,000 copies were sold of the first track. While working in Amarica he saw the evils of capitalism. when he returned to Jamaica, he began practicing the religion of Rastafarianism from then on he wore his hair in dreadlocks. Rastafarianism was apparent in the music of the wailers. Marley and the band wrote about how Africans had been oppressed. This is shown in lyrics of two of Marley's songs, Buffalo Soldier and Could You Be Loved. political philosophy The song One Love was written based on Marley's idea that every one sgould just stop fighting and come togather in one love. It is also suggested that within the song there is a deeper meaning. He talks about how evil will come to those who sin. He had strong and deep beliefs for Rastafarianism and would go to great lengths to abide by the religion. what is Rastafarianism ? Some people see rastafarianism more as a way of life than a religion. The movement is belief in the divinity or even messiahship of the Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie I. there is aslo an influence of Jamaican culture, and a strong pride in African heritage. Another key factor is the resestance of opression. The rosta way of life usually includes the ritual use of marijuana, avoidance of alcohol, dreadlocks, and bieng a vegitarian. Marley argued that there needed to be some sort of a revolution, one that would have to be pragmatic to work. One that would take place from within only the working class. Bob marleys music mostley reflected three things: * the need to demand justice and fairness from power elites. * a belief in going back to Africa. * he believed in tolerance rather than trying to change and judjung other individuals. There was alot of political unrest which was taking place at the time, this found its way into the lyrics of ’Get up, Stand up’ which urged people to rise and stand and fight for their rights and to no longer just go with the flow of things but to change things to what they needed to be. impact He has fought racism and urged poeple to be proud of there heritage. He encouraged people everywhere. Marley made people think about how they were treating each other. obtained recognition from political powers and changed the politics of Jamaica for forever. He encouraged people to stand up and fight againt the wrongs of this world http://www.oppapers.com/essays/Politics-Oppression-Lyrics-Bob-Marley/101607 http://www.rasta-man-vibration.com/jamaican-politics.html http://newsone.com/newsone-original/casey-gane-mccalla/top-10-most-politically-significant-bob-marley-songs/ http://www.oppapers.com/essays/Politics-Oppression-Lyrics-Bob-Marley/101607 http://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmasters/episodes/bob-marley/about-bob-marley/656/ http://www.religionfacts.com/a-z-religion-index/rastafarianism.htm is important too had stong political views that he showed in his music
Transcript: Bob Marley On Feb. 6, 1945, Robert Nesta Marley was born in Jamaica in Nine Miles within the Parish of St.Ann. His mother, Cedella Booker, was 18 years old when bob was born. Bob's father was a 50 year old English captain, Norval Sinclair Marley. Bob lived in St. Ann most of his childhood, then during his teen years they moved to Kingston, the capitol of Jamaica, in Trench Town. Bob childhood was filled with poverty and violence. After attending the Stepney School in Kingston, Bob spent some time training as a welder. Bob always loved singing as a kid and was part of his church choir. Bob was raised a christian by his mother but later converted to the Rastifari Movement Marley was introduced to Leslie Kong, the producer at Beverly Studios and Jimmy Cliff, an already successful singer, through a good friend, Desmond Dekker. This was when he recorded his first track, "Judge Not" in 1962, which was accidentally released under the name "Bob Morley". It was rumored that Leslie also tried to pursuade Bob into changing his name to Haddam for a stage name. eventually Bob and Kong split up after Kong refused to pay him. Shortly after, Bob formed the Wailing Wailers in 1962 (Bob Marley, Bunny Livinstone, Peter McIntosh, Junior Brathwaite as lead vocals, and Beverly Kelso and Cherry Smith as back up vocals). they called themselves this because, as bob said , "In those days we were always crying". At the end of 1963, the Coxsone Dodd label released the Wailing Wailers' first single "Simmer Down". This was also the first time for Bob and the group's popularity to reach outside of Trenchtown. He moved to America because he was having some trouble with his group. In America Bob earned some money working at a Chrysler car assembly line. He lost his job and applied for welfare but was refused. As a final push, Bob was drafted into the U.S. army for service in Vietnam. Bob did not want to so he went back to Jamaica. On Feb. 10, 1966, Bob married Alpharita Anderson who he was dating for almost a year. Alpharita (or Rita) was a nurse as well as a singer herself. She later became a singer in a the back up group for the Wailers. The day after their wedding, Bob left to visit his mother in America for a few months. Together Bob and Rita had their children Sharon, Ziggy, Cedella, Steven and Damian who are all muscially talented, and make up the Melody Makers. Ziggy is our personnel favorite. On Monday, May 11, 1981 Bob Marley died at the age of 36. Bob originally went to the hospital for a toe injury he got playing a soccer game. He was later diagnosed with cancer in his liver, lungs, and brain. He spent his last year in several hospitals where news of his health were closely watched by all. Finally, four days after he passed away, the world was given notification that the Rasta prophet had died, and a state funeral was held in his honor. We chose the song One Love, because it is applicable to what the world should be like today. One Love! One Heart! Let's get together and feel all right. Hear the children cryin' (One Love!); Hear the children cryin' (One Heart!), Sayin': give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right; Sayin': let's get together and feel all right. These lyrics are Bob saying that there is too much hate in the world and that people should all love each other (one love) One love, one heart Let's get together and feel all right Hear the children crying (One love) Hear the children crying (One heart) Sayin', "Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right." Sayin', "Let's get together and feel all right." Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One love) There is one question I'd really love to ask (One heart) Is there a place for the hopeless sinner Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own? Believe me One love, one heart Let's get together and feel all right As it was in the beginning (One love) So shall it be in the end (One heart) Alright, "Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right." "Let's get together and feel all right." One more thing Let's get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One love) So when the Man comes there will be no, no doom (One song) Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner There ain't no hiding place from the Father of Creation Sayin', "One love, one heart Let's get together and feel all right." I'm pleading to mankind (One love) Oh, Lord (One heart) Whoa. "Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right." Let's get together and feel all right. "Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right." Let's get together and feel all right. We chose the song Buffalo Soldier because we enjoyed the deep meaning of the song as well as the metaphorical speaking. Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta There was a buffalo soldier in the heart of America Stolen from Africa, brought to America Fighting on arrival, fighting for survival I mean it when I analyze the stench To me it makes a lot of sense How
