As an occasional fan of the world music category, I’m more than a little intrigued with Ziggy Marley newest CD, Family Time, that is self-described as music for young people. For myself, I’m looking forward to exposing my daughter the the unique rhythms of reggae, just as I’ve watched her enjoy the Brazilian-influenced mixes of Sergio Mendes’ Timeless CD.
"Growing up music was an important part of my childhood, Marley says. I see it being just as important in my children and all children growth and development. Music helps children to grow with open minds and open hearts and this is my message. This record represents my daily family life and is inspired by my three-year-old daughter Judah and baby Gideon. It was a joy to make and opened up new avenues in my creativity. Family Time is for all families and especially the world family."
