Rastafari mansion, Twelve Tribes of Israel will pay tribute to reggae icons Bob Marley and Dennis Brown at and event dubbed Reggae Legends on February 4.

Staged as part of the the celebrations for Reggae Month, the event will be held at the Twelve Tribes headquarters on Old Hope Road in St Andrew.

The showcase will seek to honour the music of two of Jamaica's greatest in the month of their birth, which Twelve Tribes celebrates as the month of Joseph — the 11th of Jacob's sons, and is also the birth month of the two internationally renowned artistes.

Dennis Emmanuel brown, dubbed the Crown Prince of Reggae was born on February 1, 1957 and died following a brief illness on July 1, 1999 at the age of 42. Marley, the King of Reggae, was born in St Ann on February 6, 1945 and died of cancer on May 11, 1981 at age 36. The extensive musical catalogue of both these men forms a critical part of the reggae anthology.

According to the organisers, a special feature of the night will be the participation of songstress, Mala Brown, daughter of Dennis, as well as Jamaican football Legend Allan “Skill" Cole — a close friend and associate of both Brown and Marley, who will be sharing his favourite playlists from the catalogues of the two artistes. Guest selector for Reggae Legends will be Sun City Radio's DJ Yumi from Japan.
