If you are into reggae music, then you are in for a treat. On Wednesday, 31st May Bob Marley’s youngest son, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley will be bringing the house down at the Carnivore. The two time Grammy award winning artist will be performing live at the “Street Fusion 2017” as part of his African tour which commences in Johannesburg and ends in Ethiopia.
Damian goes down in history as the only Jamaican reggae artist so far to win two Grammy Awards on the same night. This was at the 2006 Grammy Awards when he won Best Reggae Album and Best Urban/Alternative Performance for “Welcome to Jamrock”. He is also the only reggae artist to win the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category at the Grammy Awards.
Last month he released his latest album “ Sony Hill” in which he collaborated with his brother Stephen Marley under the family’s Tuff Gong record label. His ability to blend reggae with other genres of music like R&B, Hip Hop and dancehall has seen him work with a variety of artists including Mick Jagger, Bobby Brown, Bruno Mars and Nas.
Damian will be joined on stage by Kenyan artists like Wyre, Juacali, Khaligraph and leading Dj’s so you can be sure it finna be lit. This will be the first time Damian will be performing in East Africa so you better make your way to Carnivore.
