Musical pioneer Jimmy Cliff will be taking the stage for Reggae Night, July 20th at the Hollywood Bowl. A music legend for half a century, Cliff brings heartfelt soulful roots sound to any platform. Such as reggae, much of Cliff’s music voices important consciousness and socio-political awareness to his listeners, like in the cover song “World upside down” from his new album.
Cliff, one of only two reggae artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the other being Bob Marley, starred in the 1972 Jamaican cult classic, The Harder They Come. The films soundtrack, 6 songs written and performed by Cliff himself, including the title track, gained much enthusiasm and was said to put reggae on the world map.
Be sure to check out the Grammy winner’s latest album, Rebirth, which Cliff describes as being not only about his “rebirth as an artist and as a man, but also about the rebirth of the world.”
