In the end of the 1950s, Jamaicans who were influenced by independency ideas were not satisfied by sounds of American rhythm & blues anymore.

Marley had been awarded the UN Peace Medal in 1978 for his humanitarian achievements. His sociopolitical influence also earned him an invitation to perform in 1980 at the ceremonies celebrating majority rule and internationally recognized independence of Zimbabwe.

This album was a complete flop. In his teen years, he had many influences, including Fats Domino, Ray Charles, and Joe Higgs(Peake). He also loved Jamaican, Ska, and Rock Steady music(Peake). The biggest influence that anyone had ever had on Bob was Joe Higgs(Salewicz). Joe was the areas most famous singer and musically prominent Rasta, or person who followed the Rastafarian religion(Salewicz).
Reggae is the most internationally famous style of Caribbean music. Reggae, which is one of the world’s most influential music, was originated in Jamaica around the mid 1960’s. At first reggae was first performed by and for poor Jamaican’s, but quickly became popular throughout the Caribbean and around the world.

The term reggae is also applied today to reggae’s precursor styles, including mento, ska, and rock steady.

Bob Marley had a tough life but he still managed to become one of the most famous musicians ever. Bob Marley was an idol to many people because of the messages he expressed through his songs and how he did whatever it took to get those messages out, the fact that his songs helped people, and how he helped start a new genre of music.

Jeff Tyzik, a conductor for the Utah Symphony, observed that John Williams' ability to create memorable melodies and define characters has made him one of the most successful film composers (Palmer). Not only does John create memorable music, he helps to define characters. If a group of people were to think of Indiana Jones, most likely John's theme will pop into their heads. People's perception of characters in movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones is strongly influenced by music whether that is a conscious decision or not. He also has impacted many people's lives.
He inspired black musicians to continue their careers and stunned the world with his insane concets. Jimi Hendrix is by far my favorite artist of all time. His music combines all the great rhytmic kinds of music and can really speak to you. His songs are about everyday things and some not everday things that still exist today. He wrote his music to help and heal the world much like Bob Marley did.
Throughout the film Howard Shore incorporates many popular artists such as: Sia, Vampire Weekend, Muse, CeeLo Green Beck & Bat for Lashes and the list continues with a few more great bands and artists which were featured in the film. I believe the key to making nearly all movies fall in place and complete is the original score. Howard Shore did a fantastic job using original score pieces. Throughout the film there are eighteen scenes and all of which include music even if it was a original score this helped the scene flow together with the film also allowing the audience to feel the emotions the characters where undergoing as well as the character.

Kanye does... ... middle of paper ... ...ell put together. The beats of each song was very striking and captivating. I feel as though many concerts should be about the music just as they were in the classical or romantic era, then it was an orchestra or a composer with his or her instruments and all the audience had was the beauty of music and visuals were left to their imagine it was easy to listen to classical music then and appreciate it for what it actually was without the use and hype of gimmicks gadgets and over the top props. The enhancers did more than enhancing they made the concert in a way but in my opinion a musical concert should be more about the music. Kanye is a great artist and often called a lyrical genius which to some aspects I can agree with but his ideas are very over the top.
Through the centuries the Classical Period has still been honored and commemorated for its style beauty. The years between the middle of the 1700’s to the early 1800’s was a time of immense value according to many music enthusiasts today. In this era the music was considered controlled and reserved.

This era, like every other, had a unique style that has fascinated throngs of people through the ages.
