Hello People !
Still a few months to go before Rototom Sunsplash will start again, so why not bringing it closer by sharing a nice interview from last year's edition ?!
Here we are with the interview we had with Julian Marley, yes one of the legend Bob Marley's son. Fun fact : Julian has been the first artist coming from outside Finland we interview, during his europen tour in 2016, in Sweden ; is fun to look back and see how far we have come.
So here it is ! Enjoy !
Bless Julian ! How were the vibes tonight ?
Great vibes ! Overwehlming vibes of joy !
Was this your first time here in Rototom ?
-It was the first time here in Spain, we played already in Rototom when it was in Italy.
How it was to perform again in Rototom after such a long time ?
-I enjoyed it like any other time. I played some new songs and it was so nice to see people react to them.
We met two years ago after your gig in Stockholm. What happened since then? Have you been working on a new album ?
-Yes ! The new album is finished and it is called " As I am ". (E.d. the album was released on the 25th on January).
What inspired you to make this album ?
-Well, inspiration comes from the love of the music, the love of life, the love of the world and of the people. "As I am " I think describes itself, whatever gives inspiration, what I am giving people through music. " As I am " has got a lot of different songs, like Cooling in Jamaica or Broken Sails, which is about how the world it is today. Today the world is like a ship without sails, just flowing and we can't get to know the destination. So now we're gonna need some sails.
How was to perform these new songs tonight ?
-Oh! It was nice, beautiful. We enjoyed it.
Thank you Julian for taking your time to answer our questions. Bless !
