Bunji Garlin and Damian Marley Team Up to Deliver The Message

Trinidadian soca star Bunji Garlin and Jamaican Grammy-winning reggae artist Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley team up on The Message, a passionate forward-thinking song fighting for the souls of our youth and the future generation.
 
The two Caribbean artists merge soca, dancehall and reggae into a universal sound on this world cry anthem, produced by Philip "Jr. Blender" Meckseper. They go verse for verse addressing society's illls and Marley delivers a powerful hook aspiring for change. "There is music in your soul, minerals in your soil, children full of beauty worth way much more than oil. While history unfolds, don't let the good things spoil, oh no."

Bunji Garlin gives more insight behind the collaboration."We recorded this song at Gong's studio in Florida. It was a 4am studio session after we spent about an hour and a half just talking and getting a vibe off of each other's knowledge, views and energies. I appreciate the project and artist because we were able to let both our musical backgrounds work for us to execute this. It is almost a fable to see the son of reggae legend and also a legend in his own right and artist of the soca genre meld so effortlessly." 

Marley is slated to perform in Garlin's homeland on Friday, October 30 in Tobago at Pigeon Point and Saturday, October 31 at Hasley Crawford Stadium in Trinidad and Tobago.
