Damian Marley, Tarrus Riley, Wayne Marshall & TOK – "Independence"

In honor and celebration of Jamaica's 50th independence anniversary today, Damian Marley, Tarrus Riley, Wayne Marshall and TOK released "Independence" – a dancehall play on the Jamaican national anthem that questions the true meaning of independence.

Conscious reggae music as a tool for social change is a Jamaican invention and one of the greatest gifts the tiny island country has given the world – thanks Bob Marley. In the Jamaican tradition we see its possible to be critical of your country and still be proud of your nationality. Happy birthday Jamaica!
