“Won’t you help to sing These songs of freedom? ’Cause all I ever have, Redemption songs, Redemption songs.” Singer-songwriter Jes Ebrahim covers Bob Marley's Redemption Song at #Buskstop, on Nelson Mandela International Day. Redemption Song is perhaps one of the most influential songs from the Jamaican music industry, and parts of its lyrics are borrowed from politician Marcus Garvey's speech (the first two lines of the following verse): “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, None but our self can free our minds. Have no fear for atomic energy, ’Cause none of them can stop the time. How long shall they kill our prophets, While we stand aside and look? Some say it's just a part of it, We’ve got to fulfill de book.” #throwback #iammandela #time2serve #bobmarley #nelsonmandela
