Damian, Stephen, Julian & Rohan Marley backstage in Central Park, NYC. (1996)
This photo was taken before the Marley Magic show at Central Park’s Summer Stage. I remember this show well, it was pretty amazing and featured performances by Ziggy & the Melody Makers, Stephen, Damian, Julian and Rita as well as the Tuff Gong recording artist Yvad. The free show drew a huge crowd with an overflow crowd listening all around outside the venue. The show was also recorded for both video and a double CD release which I was lucky enough to do photos for.
