Damian Marley also known as Jr. Gong has surely adopted his father’s (Bob Marley) charming good looks. Watching him seamlessly transition from a boy into manhood has been interesting to witness. His style is subtle, he maintains a very relaxed and casual vibe and possesses the wisdom and potency of a man twice his age. Marley, 36 is a gentle Cancer born on July 21, in Jamaica. It seems to us he’s been singing since he could talk. His first album, Mr, Marley was released in 1996, he was just a teenager then. He released several albums after that, giving us hits like “Welcome to Jamrock” and “Road to Zion.”
In 2012, Marley explained what he meant when he called himself a spiritual revolutionary:
A revolution is to bring on change and we’re spiritual people trying to bring on spiritual change. It might sound like I’m a dreamer, but economic models have reached their height of evolution. Technology has evolved. What hasn’t evolved is mankind’s spirituality; everything is from 3,000 years ago. With spirituality comes morals, a better way of thinking.
In Jamaica, the way rasta became popular spread a message of love and one love. But it’s a work in progress. I think after a time there won’t be anything left to be interesting for mankind. Computers are about to do everything for us. Cellphones are smarter than we are. We’ll embrace spirituality because we’ll be bored of everything else.
