Son of Bob Marley announces album to commemorate 30 years since the death of his father

Stephen Marley, a son of Jamaican singer Bob Marley, announced the launch of their new album when today marks the thirtieth anniversary of the death of the greatest exponent of reggae. Marley is spreading the name of his father by announcing the album "Revelation Part 1: The Roof of Life", which will be released on 24th May and returning to the roots of reggae.

The producer and songwriter, five times Grammy award winner, will present another album, "Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life", which he describes as an eclectic sound sensation. In the first album, the single "Jah Army", involved his brother Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley. The single was recorded by the Marley brothers in a studio in Kingston (Jamaica) and other songs in Miami (USA).

The musical production is disclosed when the Caribbean country and elsewhere is reminiscent of the reggae legend who died in Miami on May 11, 1981 because of terminal cancer at the age of 36. Stephen Marley said it will hold an international tour in July to promote his album "Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life", and continue paying homage to his father.

Bob Marley, singer of "Stir It Up", "Get up, stand up", "Satisfy My Soul" and "No Woman No Cry," among many songs, born in 1945 in the midst of a poor family in Nine Mile, in the north of the island and became known as a musician in 1972 with his first album recorded with The Wailers, "Catch a Fire." His album "Legend" which was released in 1984, remains the best selling album in the history of reggae.

Robert Nesta Marley Booker, his real name, was known for helping spread Jamaican music and the movement called Rastafari worldwide.
