Born in 1948 in Jamaica, reggae musician and actor Jimmy Cliff took the world by storm with the movie The Harder they Come in 1973. From the time of its release, reggae was on the cultural map.

Other early iconic songs were Many Rivers to Cross and You Can Get it if you Really Want. Here he sings No Woman no Cry in tribute to the late Bob Marley.

Jimmy Cliff's latest opus is Rebirth. This album celebrates his fiftieth year working in a studio, and 40 years since the historic album The Harder They Come. He is  currently scheduled for tour dates in Japan, the US, the UK and several European countries.
