On this day, we celebrate the #Earthstrong of Jamaica's first national hero and our 'John The Baptist' of the Rastafarian movement, Marcus Mosiah Garvey. . I'n'I continue to pursue his immortal decree: "We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery, because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind." #RedemptionSong
"Until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all, without regard to race..." #War . #DidYouKnow: The lyrics from "War" are originally from a speech made by HIM Haile Selassie I before the United Nations General Assembly in 1963.
As part of our #ProjectMarley reforestation efforts with One Tree Planted, each #BuffaloSoldier BT headphone purchase from The House of Marley helps plant one tree 🌲 Join the movement @ bit.ly/hom_buffalosoldier
"I was finding stuff all over the place when looking through the tapes. I found some synth parts that were really funky and I was like, ‘let’s make this be a lead.’ I love that part so much, and I couldn’t believe it, because in those days it was unheard of to hear stuff like that." – Ziggy Marley on #Exodus40
On 10 August 1979, which was the International Year of the Rasta Child, Bob performed at a charity concert alongside THIRD WORLD, Burning Spear, Jacob Miller, Black Uhuru Official and others! Proceeds from the event went to fund a school and training center in Trench Town. #todayinbobslife
“I hafta laugh sometimes when those scribes say I’m like Mick Jagger or some superstar thing like that. They have to listen close to the music, ‘cause the message is not the same. The reggae is not the Twist.” #bobmarleyquotes
We are proud to announce #ProjectMarley 🌲 A partnership with One Tree Planted to support global reforestation. The purchase of any product from The House of Marley helps plant one tree. #MaterialsMatter
