Also, hear a cool ID he cut for me today– Ziggy is the man, for sure… a very nice guy. What a meaningful interview! We had the kind of conversation that is revealing, fun, provoking, and rich with new insight into the legendary Marley family dynasty, and the elder son of Bob Marley. Details on his history with the islands, his fathers unique place in Hawaii music and culture, how much time he spends in Jamaica these days, the role of the Star Of David in Rastafarian mythology and his special connection with Israel, his outstanding vision of harmonious world peace and co-habitation, the impact Rita had on Bob in terms of his own development and much more. Don’t miss him at the Kokua Festival with Jack Johnson, Taj Mahal and others April 23-24 in Waikiki at the Waikiki Shell, and coming soon in a new interview feature on Hawaii Public Radio.
Ziggy Marley is playing April 23-24 at the Waikiki Shell, and he spoke to me today for over a half-hour in a very special interview we’ll be featuring on HPR soon. He is a solid brother in every way and it was a huge thrill to speak with him. Here’s a pic from last summer hanging out with him in Waikiki, August 2009.
