Bob Marley and the Wailers: Zimbabwe 1980

In April 1980, Bob Marley and the Wailers traveled to Zimbabwe (former Rhodesia) to perform before honored guests, including Prince Charles, and the people of Rhodesia to celebrate Zimbabwe’s Independence from British colonial rule.

It was a concert which endured a riot, and it is the first and only time that Marley will play the recently penned anthem ‘Zimbabwe’ for the new nation’s citizens.

Included is a short AP video clip which describes the celebrations, and includes a short glimpse of Marley performing at the 6:46 minute mark.
