If anybody can incite change through song, it’s GRAMMY® and EMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, humanitarian, and visionary Ziggy Marley. For as much as he upholds a family tradition that began with his father Bob Marley, he’s blazed his own trail as an acclaimed artist. After eight records with The Melody Makers and three GRAMMY® Awards, Ziggy kicked off his solo career in 2003 with Dragonfly. He garnered the GRAMMY® Award for "Best Reggae Album" in 2006 (Love Is My Religion), 2013 (In Concert), 2014 (Fly Rasta), and 2016 for the self-titled Ziggy Marley—which marked his fourth consecutive debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Reggae Album Chart. Ziggy infuses the spirit of revolution into his seventh full-length solo offering, Rebellion Rises (Tuff Gong Worldwide).
Raised in Rio de Janeiro but residing in Paris, Flavia Coelho is a Brazilian singer delivering a fresh cocktail of samba, bossa nova, Brazilian rap, reggae, and ragga with a playful confidence. Flavia’s latest recording, Sonho Real, glows with hints of forro and ragga, frenzied ska rhythms, and a dub nonchalance. Flavia’s voice and harmonies are at once sensual, joyous, and unforgettable.
