Tribute to the Legend: Bob Marley
is an album by the Puerto Rican reggae band
, Cultura Profética
. The album is a live performance of a tribute the band held to Jamaican reggae
singer Bob Marley
The album was recorded on February 4, 2006, at the Tito Puente Amphitheatre
in San Juan, Puerto Rico
, and was released on May 8, 2007.
As a reggae band, Cultura Profética have always been fans of Bob Marley's music. This is noted in their performance of Marley's songs (or adaptations of them) in some of their previous albums. On their second album, Ideas Nuevas
, they performed a cover of "So Much Trouble". The song "Bieke", featured on their third studio album, Diario
, is an adaptation of "Zimbabwe".
Since the early 2000s, the band has performed several tribute concerts to Marley. However, this time they decided to record it and release it as a homage
to the Jamaican singer. The track listing follows closely the one from Legend
, Marley's best known hit collection. On previous tributes, the band had performed some more obscure songs from Marley, but this time they wanted the audience to fully join in.
For this album, usual singer Willy Rodríguez passed the microphone to the band's drummer and vocalist Boris Bilbraut. According to Rodríguez, Bilbraut's voice is closer to Marley's. Bilbraut has been the lead singer of some of the band's songs.
