Ziggy Marley to Host Free Children’s Concert to Benefit the Hawaii Children’s Discovery Center


In support of the non-profit organization Hawaii Children's Discovery Center (HCDC), on Saturday, August 15, Ziggy Marley brings family time to Hawaii!

(I-Newswire) July 22, 2009 - On Saturday, August 15, Ziggy Marley brings family time to Hawaii! In support of the non-profit organization Hawaii Children's Discovery Center (HCDC), he will be hosting a free children's show at the center and will be performing songs from his newest children's albums, "Family Time" and "B Is for Bob." Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis, no reservations will be taken for the event.

Growing up, music was a significant part of Ziggy's childhood. And now, he hopes to share it with Hawaii's children. "I know how important music can be in a child's growth and development, and in a parent's connection with their children," he says. "Music helps children to grow with open minds and open hearts and this is my message."
"We are thrilled to be hosting Ziggy's children's concert at the Discovery Center," said HCDC President and CEO Loretta Yajima. "It is a wonderful way for families to connect through music, and we're excited to be a part of this wonderful event."

The children's concert at HCDC will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a performance by local ukulele master Roy Sakuma. He will be joined by a few of his students, including a child who has learned to play the instrument with one arm. Sakuma is revered as Hawaii's foremost ukulele teacher and has been teaching for more than 30 years. He currently has 4 studios opened throughout Oahu.

Ziggy will then take the stage at noon and perform until 12:30 p.m. After the show, he will be available for autographs.

"Family Time," Ziggy's first children's album, offers a collection of family-oriented reggae tunes and features the likes of Willie Nelson, Paul Simon and local Hawaii singers Jack Johnson and Paula Fuga. In this record, which was released in May, he shares with families his love of music through themes of love, unity, freedom and fun. Ziggy says that this record represents his daily family life and was inspired by his four-year-old daughter Judah and baby Gideon. Judah even lends her voice to the album's title track. For his second children's album, "B Is for Bob," Ziggy re-imagines a collection of classic tunes of his legendary father, Bob Marley. This album was just released in late June.

Seating for the children's concert will be limited in a courtyard at the HCDC on the grass and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations will be taken for this event. Space is limited to about 200 people. While the concert is free, entrance to HCDC activity galleries requires paid admission.
