Last Thursday, the second youngest of the Marley children, Ky-Mani Marley, came out to Denver to celebrate the 123rd birthday of Haile Selassie.
For those who have never been to Cervantes, it is one of Denver, Colorado’s, most talked about music venues. Located in the ‘Five Points’ neighborhood just outside the downtown center, Cervantes is in the perfect location to draw a high energy, diverse, positive crowd to any shows.
Ky-Mani and his opening acts, Major Myjah and Denvers own, Tatanka, brought strictly positive vibes from the get-go. Through their heavy bass rhythms, each group successfully rocked the crowd and together, created an environment any reggae/hip-hop lover would be proud to be at.
Ganjaology had the pleasure of attending and photographing the Ky-Mani Marley show. Below are all original pictures of the night.
We want to say thanks to everyone who came out and made the night a special one!
