In 1975 Bob Marley and the Wailers made their first and everlasting appearance at the Lyceum in London Marley and the Wailers sung their way into the hearts of many people with their peaceful fun-loving messages Bob Marley promoted a peaceful Utopia where people werent separated by differing demographics In contrast to African-America Artists of today Marley used more feminine overtones to spread his reggae music style and left a legacy of social activism His fame and the subculture that follows his life and music is completely opposite of the business minded African American Icons of today Some details of Marleys lifestyle and the Rastafarian social culture reflect the roots of the Rastafarian religion Through his music he displayed ideals of how life should be lived and how the world could be The connotations of the culture hairstyle dreadlocks show an interesting representation of the feminine overtones of the religion The dreadlocks themselves are dirty and grungy which has multiple meaning It can be a reference to the dirt of the earth and back to naturalism message However it can also be a message to those inner city dwellers who mush push through the dirt and grunge of the cities They hairstyles conformity also conveys the message of unity within the lower social class of repressed peoples Probably the most famous of Marleys attributes is the use of marijuana openly In an act of social taboo breaking Marley publicly admitted he was an avid user of marijuana The populace of Americans at the time usually associated marijuana use with the stoner or hippie culture But why would Marley want to associate himself with these subgroups When asked what the pure ideals of theses culture groups are most would agree that the movements promoted peace love and tranquility Thats exactly what Marleys belief system was based on and he thusly embraced the connotations that came with he use of marijuana Some critics in the past
