Bob Marley, Middle East-style

no woman no cry

He would have been 73 today.  Somewhere in one of my files I still have the special edition of West Indian World newspaper that I helped turn out in the days after his death in 1981.  It was hard to believe he’d gone, and today it’s even harder to believe he was only 36. If you need proof that his music continues to transcend cultures, here’s an extraordinary version of his most famous song, performed by an ensemble led by the Bahraini artist Mohammed Al Bakri.  HT: On An OvergrownPath.
