It’s difficult, as Americans, to get a good bead on the cultural importance of Bob Marley in his native Jamaica and to reggae and dub as musical institutions. On the one hand, he was the genre’s great popularizer. On the other hand, “posthumous dorm poster icon” is a dubious legacy. Look, then, to his children, musicians and performers in their father’s vein, for a less historically tainted view of his music’s power. And while personally I prefer the hiphop consciousness of his youngest offspring, Damian, it is eldest son, Ziggy, who most definitely carries his father’s torch. With 18 records (one unreleased) to his name, Ziggy is as prolific as Bob, and one day may be as beloved. JOSEPH SCHAFER
