REDEMPTION SONG GETS MUSIC VIDEO

 

To mark Bob Marley’s 75th birthday this year, a music video for his hit Redemption Song was released on his YouTube channel. The animation features 2747 original drawings inspired by Jamaica from artists Octave Marsal and Theo De Gueltzi. Produced by Fabien Moreau, the video also includes insights from his family to illustrate the imaginary world to stimulate self-reflection and highlight his contribution to the empowerment of black civilization. 

 

Other MARLEY75 celebrations include all things music, fashion, art, photography, technology, sport and film, special live events, exclusive digital content, recordings and exhibitions that will give fans unprecedented access to archives from Marley’s estate.
