Description Burning Spear, born Winston Rodney, has been plying his own brand of roots and reggae music for nearly 40 years now. Born in Saint Ann Jamaica, the birthplace of Marcus Garvey and Bob Marley, he was heavily influenced by the philosophy of both. Burning Spear is one of the strongest proponents of Garvey's belief in self-determination and self-reliance for all African descendants and the themes of honesty, peace and love that are intertwined with his music are fundamental to the political message of Rastafarianism.While he has toured worldwide, his concerts often lasting over 2 hours, this was only the third time Burning Spear had come to perform on the African Continent.Many saw it as a kind of homecoming given that his adopted name, Burning Spear was taken after Jomo Kenyatta, the first Prime Minister and President of an independent Kenya.Organised by the Sarakasi Trust, East Africa's largest performing arts organisation, the concert was attended by over 50,000 Kenyans.
