Jamaican musician who was the lead exponent of reggae music in America. By age 17, he was writing music and thanks to a recording break, was on the charts by 19. Marley remains the most widely known and revered performer of reggae music, and is credited with helping spread both Jamaican music and the Rastafari movement to a worldwide audience. Marley's music was heavily influenced by the social issues of his homeland, and he is considered to have given voice to the specific political and cultural nexus of Jamaica.

He was diagnosed with liver and lung cancer in 1980 and died on 11 Mai 1981, Miami, FL.
