Speaking of Bob Marley, let's take a quick look into his influence with Reggae Music and how his music influenced social-political change.
Robert Nesta Marley was a Jamaican songwriter and musician that lived from February 6, 1945 to May 11th, 1981. "Bob Marley" is known throughout the world for making Reggae Music popular and spreading the Rastafari movement. His most notable band was called Bob Marley & The Wailers (1963-1981). They played not only Reggae but also Ska and Rocksteady styles of music.
Bob Marley's music covered social and political issues that had a big influence in his homeland of Jamaica. Everyone who has ever heard Reggae Music has certainly heard some and all of his music whether it was from the man himself or a cover from a multitude of popular music artist. Just to name a few of Bob Marley's famous songs: "I Shot the Sheriff", "No Woman, No Cry", "Get Up Stand Up", "Jamming", "Redemption Song", "One Love", and "Buffalo Soldier".
