Look for the dancers enjoying life as they kick up to Bob Marley's message. Back in my college days, a friend tracked me down and had me listen to this new kind of sound he had discovered. It was by Bob Marley and the music was called Reggae. It was a new and different kind of music that made you think of kick'n back on the beach with a beer in one hand and toot'n some dooby with the other. I ended up collecting his albums and some other good Reggae sounds. I learned how his message was rooted in the belief of non violent change, unity for the people, One Love and One Heart. Bob Marley practically invented the idea of wearing dreadlocks. It was his signature look, wild and untamed, a connection to his religious belief, Rasta. He left us much too soon, but his unique look and sound lives on in our culture. Do you see the dancers in his dreads? There are 22.
