Ziggy Marley Q&A + Music

Ziggy Marley made a brief stop through the Bay Area recently to promote the release of the new feature-length Marley documentary film.

ForwardEver was invited to moderate a Q&A with Ziggy; you can watch the video for it here.

David Nesta "Ziggy" Marley -- Bob Marley’s oldest son -- is executive producer of the new documentary on his father's life, directed by Kevin Mcdonald. 
Ziggy is also 5-time Grammy winner, author, musician and human rights advocate. In 2011 he released his fourth solo album, Wild & Free, which was nominated for a 2012 Grammy. In 2009 Ziggy played at the White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll event, only the second reggae artist ever to appear at an American Presidential event. 

During our interview we touched on the new album, which was co-produced by Don Was (Miles Davis, B-52s), and his recording with late great hip-hop MC (of Jamaican heritage) Heavy D. Marley also spoke about his role in shaping the new movie and shared some memories of his famous father.
