Ziggy Marley 

Fly Rasta (Fly Rasta)

At 45, Ziggy is nine years older than his father, Bob Marley, was when he died in 1981. Though he does have a similar vocal style, the tone is more upbeat than uprising. Ziggy's songs dart in and out of what purists would call reggae, dangerously close to a Disney version. The title song, with a motormouth interlude by U-Roy, is best at transporting listeners to Jamaica in their minds. You can now dance to today's overused phrase, "Moving Forward." On the most topical number, "So Many Rising," he asks "Who will be above the fray?" "Get Up" borrows a phrase from dad to mark resilience as integral to defiance.
