Five-time Grammy-winning musician, actor, activist and humanitarian, Ziggy Marley performed hits from his extensive catalogue at the Howard Theatre on Wednesday, June 13.
Marley released Wild and Free his fourth solo album on June 14, 2011.
"The thing that makes [Wild and Free] special is that Ziggy has embraced the more traditional and familiar textures and rhythms of reggae, while further defining the unique artistic vision that sets him apart," said Marley's friend and producer Don Was. Wild and Free carries themes of freedom, responsibility and love and blends rock, reggae and soul masterfully.
Marley won his fifth Grammy in the "Best Musical Album for Children," for Family Time, a 2009 collection of family-inspired, reggae driven songs. The album included collaborations with Rita Marley, Cedella Marley, Judah Marley, Jack Johnson, Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, Laurie Berkner, Elizabeth Mitchell and Jamie Lee Curtis.
