Rohan Marley was 9 years old I didn't want to believe in the death of dad Bob. If I listen to it, it seems to me that I might weep

"I Was on a football field, as always, for the rest, at the time. It was a guy and he said to me: “Your dad is dead”. Instinctively, I laughed and said "don't joke, my dad is a superhero, can't die"". L’11 maggio next each (re)live the mourning in his own way: why forty years each, to all the latitudes of the Planet, has its Bob Marley staff. And a superhero is the right word, because superheroes never seem to age: for all, yes, the Bob Marley of years, one will always have 36, the ones that only had when he left that on may 11, 1981 of cancer is devastating. The superhero was safe for Rohan, the fifth child of eleven natural Bob (the other two would be adopted by his wife Rita, Rohan is instead the son of Janet Hunt) that on that day he was only nine years old.

"my older siblings Ziggy and Stephen were not there, they went to Miami with him — he tells his own from Miami, where he lives today. When they returned without him, I realized finally that dad was no longer there and I cried hard. Stephen I took the head and said, "Stop crying, dad is just gone the other way"". Already then, as today, the Marley family is a monolith: eleven, coming to the fourth generation, the tribe now numbers seventy people: "there are No grandchildren, those of my brothers and my sisters are all our children so we bring forward the message of dads, inspired by the love and respect". Rohan is one of the few tribes that are not dedicated to music and today is the entrepreneur, after a past as a player of american football that has seen it be as team-mate to none other than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson: "I didn't know to sing," he jokes. And continues: "I didn't know, however, even "mow" as you do in football: so, after trying to play football, I finally stopped with the sport".

Devoting so the cultivation of sustainable coffee, but also of marijuana curative), strictly watermarked Marley: "The music, they are my children: Joshua is dedicated to electronics, Selah has tried the way of songwriting. Thanks also to my mother". Already, the mother of his five children is the greatest Lauryn Hill, already diva of the Fugees, with which Rohan was left in 2009, but with which it maintains good relations. And of course, the good blood of his grandfather, Bob don't mind. Why, then, 40 years his legend never dies? "Because every thing he said and sang was true. And he looked just the world, but he knew he had to imagine" try to explain Rohan. Who remembers Bob "as a father extremely tolerant and inclusive". And if you had to choose a song for his extensive production would choose a "side", but he is very important on an emotional level: Smile Jamaica, 1978 "I Feel that his soul while he sings, his love for our Country. And while it invites us to smile, it seems to me that I might weep".

From Jamaica to Italy, the step is short. Rohan, together with his brothers, Julian, Damian and Stephen, supports Music, for Love, disk with several Italian artists (such as the trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso), made together with the friend and colleague of the entrepreneur Franco Nannucci, and the proceeds will go to charity projects in contexts of extreme poverty in different parts of the world. Of legendary concerts at the San Siro Bob in 1980, and also Rohan has heard: "I Know that the magic of those show has touched the souls of many of you, marking their fate forever." And if Bob were alive today, as he had no way to say also the older sister Cedella, "Surely you would put at the head of the movement, the Black Live Matters — confirmation Rohan — : he was a voice for Africa, he wanted his redemption. But he also supported a yellow, a red live matters: it was for the equality of all, the positivity was his word". And today, that of positivity, but there is little in this world the gloomy marked by the pandemic, if crowed, Bob what intonerebbe? The item is certainly not the same, but Rohan tries too: "Let's get together/and feel all right...". One love, already: "Only through love can we get out of it, he concluded. I don't know if my father was the perfect man, but his words, those yes, yesterday and today, are always perfect...".
