Marley Africa Road Trip

A friend recently turned me on to the six part series Marley Africa Road Trip. The mini series follows brothers Ziggy, Rohan, and Robbie Marley as they ride motorcycles through Africa during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The journey, inspired by their fathers vision of African unity, gives a great window into the Marley legacy in Africa as well as the lives of 3 of his children as they attempt to hold a free concert to celebrate Bob's music 30 years after his own expedition to Africa to play at the Zimbabwe Independence Concert. So far I have really enjoyed the show, and especially getting to know Ziggy beyond his music. Also cool to see some of the lesser known Marley son's doing their thing outside the world of music. I highly recommend for anyone interested and must admit that I now have a desire to roadtrip on a motorcycle as well.
