Tuff Gong Worldwide is proud to present 1 World Chorus: Celebrating Bob Marley. Children from Portland, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, Bogata, Kingston and Nine Miles, Jamaica sing and play all of the instruments parts on this ground breaking collaboration. The rich musical legacy of Bob Marley transcends age and time. The Reggae music legend would have been 70 this year. We pay tribute to Bob with this collection of songs, performed by some of his youngest fans.

This ten-track collection was performed entirely by Aaron Nigel Smith’s 1World Chorus – a collaboration of children 7 to 15 years of age, from Kenya, Colombia, the United States and Jamaica. Judah Marley, granddaughter of the late reggae icon, also makes a guest vocal appearance on ‘Bend Down Low’. These budding musicians performed everything from the first drumbeat to the last vocal take, tracking the album over 18 months in studios around the world. During the production process, the children strengthened their own musicianship and learned basic recording techniques.

Bob Marley had an affinity for sharing music with children – teaching his own, guiding them to form Ziggy Marley & Melody Maker’s, and penning their first song ‘Children Playing In The Streets’. Marley’s love for sharing music with children also shines through in the timeless ‘Is This Love’ video. ‘Celebrate Bob Marley’ reinforces how deep Marley’s musical imprint and message of ‘One Love’ continues to reach, resonating with kids of all ages.

In addition to providing free music workshops to schools participating in this special project, a portion of sales will benefit these music programs. Further, 1World Chorus has partnered with some of the nation’s leading companies to provide on-going support to the project. Remo Drums, Martin Guitars and Guitar Center have all donated musical instructions to the schools, with Keen Footwear donating socks and shoes to the students.
