‘Live for yourself and you will live in vain. Live for others and you will live again’. So declared reggae prophet Bob Marley, one of the 20th century’s most charismatic performers. His songs advocated social change and spiritual revolution, whilst allowing his listeners to forget their troubles and dance.
Redemption Songs: The Bob Marley Project features the very best of Marley’s music, from the cutting edge politics of ‘So Much Trouble in the World’ to the hymnal ‘No Woman, No Cry’ and the sweet pop of ‘Is this love?’ and ‘Three little birds’. Translated into exquisite Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock, they will be performed by Liam Ó Maonlaí and acclaimed Belfast reggae band Bréag. Margaret Lonergan has created stunning screen projections of the lyrics. Curated by Liam Carson, IMRAM Irish Language Literature Festival.
Full Confirmed Line-up:
Liam Ó Maonlaí, Bréag, Natty Wailer, Steve Cooney, Justine Nantale, Esosa Ighodaro, Zeenat Sarumi.
