Ziggy Marley

This 2011 summer has definitely been a “Marley” summer for Europe! Many of the Marley brothers in fact have toured all over Europe performing in concerts and festivals. Italy too has been blessed with the presence of the Marleys, starting from Damian and Julian, than Stephen and Ky-mani, and least but not last Ziggy, that performed in Bologna at Estragon Club in a hot summer night, August 26th.

Ziggy is the oldest of the siblings, he was the founder and leader of the “Melody Makers” and if you talk about the son of Bob Marley everybody in the world identify him as Ziggy Marley…

The last time he performed in my country it was in 2007, and the fans were really missing his music and his vibes. This show in Bologna has been the only Italian date for this 2011 European tour, and even if it was a crazy hot summer night, hundreds of fans came from all over Italy.

Ziggy MarleyTemperature and excitement were really hot, and finally Ziggy came on stage singing one of his latest album track Welcome To The World a song written for his newborn Abraham Selassie Robert Nesta, followed by Mmmm Mmmm from the same new album 'Wild And Free'.

The show was a great mix of new and old tracks of his career as Melody Makers and solo production, such as Tomorrow People, Love Is My Religion, True To Myself,  with some great Bob’s oldies like Jammin', One Love, Pimper’s Paradise, but he also performed many songs of his new work: some of my favourites like Forward To Love and Changes, this last one together with Tracy Hazzard, the wonderful backing vocals that sang doing the part of Daniel “Bam” Marley, the eldest son of Ziggy that features this tune in the album.

It has been a two hours concentrate of great vibes and great music! Blessed Love…..
