JAMAICAN reggae and hip-hop artist Ky-Mani Marley has promised a ‘high-energy show’ when he performs live in Bahrain next weekend.
The performance which will mark the Grammy-nominated musician’s debut in Bahrain will also celebrate the 73rd birth anniversary of his legendary father and international music icon, Bob Marley.
Organised by Miami Events, the show will feature the Konfrontation Band as well as DJs Teddy Jam, Riddle and Kofi Wisky.
“This will be my first time performing in Bahrain so I’m looking forward to the energy and culture of the people,” he told the GDN, from Jamaica.
“The crowds can always expect a high-energy show taking them on a musical journey of my songs along with a tribute to my father and his music.
“It feels wonderful for me to be able to celebrate my father’s life and music.
“One of the reasons I do music is because of my father; I’m inspired by his music and his positivity and legacy.”
Ky-Mani recorded his debut album, Like Father Like Son, in 1996 and several singles including Judge Not, Who The Cap Fit and Dear Dar which topped the British reggae charts, adding to his growing reputation as a master in the new generation of reggae musicians.
He also released a record in 2000 called the Journey, before releasing his third studio album Many More Roads in 2001.
In 2004, Ky-Mani went on tour and released his fourth studio album, Milestone.
One of his latest works is the album titled, Maestro, which was released in mid-2015.
Speaking of the year ahead, he said: “I’m always working on new music and hope to have an album out this summer.
“I have acquired a soccer team in Jamaica named Falmouth United which I’m excited about, along with several other projects I’m working on.”
Ky-Mani will perform on February 8 at Coral Bay and doors will open at 3pm.
Tickets are currently on sale for the event from the venue.
