Ziggy Marley’s Fly Rasta Tour Live on Yahoo!

Throughout the years, Ziggy Marley has built an impressive resume – which helped to keep his dad’s flame alive. Ziggy is a six-time GrFly Rasta Tourammy winner, Emmy winner, humanitarian, singer, songwriter and producer.

His fifth and most recent album, Fly Rasta, came out in April 2014. Shortly after, Ziggy embarked on a worldwide tour that, according to him, has enabled him to reconnect with his Rastafarian roots.

“For the past few albums, I haven’t spoken about Rasta in that sense,” Ziggy explains. “But it is something that is deep within me. It’s very common for people to use that word — Rasta this and Rasta that. But I don’t use it that much. For me, Fly Rasta is like lifting up the banner again. It’s a celebration of my philosophy.”

To promote it, Ziggy made dozens of TV appearances across the US and Europe, including performances/interviews on Conan O’Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman, Real Time with Bill Maher, The Queen Latifah Show, The Arsenio Hall Show, and many, many others.
