Ziggy Marley is slated to be the Reggae Act at Worldfest California between July 15-18.
The five-time Grammy winning reggae superstar (including the 2010 Grammy for Best Children’s Album,Family Time), philanthropist, and political activist will share his musical love with WorldFest’s kids. His is to be backed by some of reggae’s finest musicians.
Ziggy’s commitment to family is legendary and his voice is known around the world as the rasta jelly fish Bernie in Shark Tale, singing the theme song for Arthur, and for his support of children as a United Nations Youth Ambassador. Carrying on the torch of Bob, we can’t imagine a better way to close the festival on Sunday night. Welcome Ziggy!
