Capítulo de la muestra:
We came from Trenchtown
Bob Marley, The Wailers and the political violence in Jamaica
The marks of violence end up transforming the guitar shaped into the form of a machine gun in one of the symbols of reggae music at the time as well as an icon of rebellion and militancy. Originally created and used by California-based guitarist Bruno Coon from the Prairie Fire rock group, it becomes notorious in the hands of Peter Tosh, who bought it for USD 550 after a show in Los Angeles in 1983. This instrument is one of the flagship pieces of the exhibition.
