Sons of reggae legend Bob Marley - Damian, Stephen, Julian and Ky-Mani - will headline 10th staging of the Trench Town Rock concert which is free to the public. The concert is being coordinated by The Trench Town Festival Committee, and heavily supported by Ghetto Youths International.

Starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, the Boys' Town Community Centre will be the epicentre for the concert in honour of the birth place of roots, rockin' reggae Trench Town.

This staging is symbolic, as the four brothers are joined by Ghetto Youths International artistes Wayne Marshall, Black Am I, and Christopher Ellis, along with Kelissa and Kabaka Pyramid. Roots rockin' reggae lovers can expect a mystical delivery from Sizzla, Richie Spice, Christopher Martin and Nittie Kutchie, and a militant showcase from dancehall generals Capleton, Agent Sasco, Junior Reid, and Bounty Killer.

 

Symbolic

 

Junior Lincoln, Co-Chairman Trench Town Festival Committee believes that the rich cultural background of Trench Town and the endorsement from the Marley Brothers is symbolic for this staging of the event.

"The event started quite small for the people of Trench Town. Five years ago we moved from Vin Lawrence Park because of the growth in numbers," he said.

"Trench Town is an international brand and this event helps to reinforce to community members the rich legacy of music and the cultural heritage of Trench Town in an atmosphere of unity and love. The Marleys have assisted us over the years on this project and this year their unified support speaks volumes."
