On Tuesday, more than one hundred students from a number of Corporate Area schols had the opportunity to witness the process of making music courtesy of Tuff Gong — the record label founded by reggae icon Bob Marley.

According to Lorna Wainwright of Tuff Gong, the initiative, under the theme Making The Music, was inspired by numerous requests from schools to tour and be informed about this aspect of the music industry.

The students were drawn from Rainbow Academy, Trinity Basic, Apex Kindergarten and Preparatory, Seaward Primary, Jebb Memorial Basic and Vineyard Town Methodist Basic schools.

Wainwright explained that the tour offered a behind-the-scenes look at the record-making process and the early days of the man who would become international music icon, Bob Marley.

As part of the tour the students were also treated to readings from two Marley-inspired children's books — The Boy from Nine Miles and the recently released One Love.
