In Jamaica, them always have throwback riddims, recycled old beats, and the hardcore reggae scene is always present. You have faster stuff like the more commercialized stuff, but you always have that segment of music that is always from the core, from the original root of it.Damian Marley
I like singing all songs, really, but I find that writing social commentary comes naturally.Damian Marley
I can remember the first time I ever recorded my vocals on to a beat. Cat Coore from Third World – a legendary Jamaican band – had a little demo set up at his house. I’m very good friends with his eldest son, Shiah, who plays with me now. So we were rhyming over a track by the dancehall artist Peter Metro. I’ve still got it somewhere.Damian Marley
The U.K. is one of the places that has always been an advocate of my music and I spend a lot of time touring here. I’ve got family and friends over here, but more than that, there’s a large Jamaican community and the Jamaican culture is very widespread in the U.K. which I love.Damian Marley
The whole world is set up so that for places like Switzerland to exist, that are crime-free and with the best care for everybody, you have to have places like Sudan, or Jamaica. But really, there’s enough to share, when you check it. It’s not that complicated, really. It’s probably less thinking and more feeling that’s required.Damian Marley
