The genesis of the idea for Bob Marley & The Chineke! Orchestra came via the
acclaimed cellist and 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year Sheku Kenneh-Mason
OBE. Although now a full-time solo artist and no longer an active Chineke! member,
it was Kenneh-Mason pioneering and original arrangements of Marley, No
Woman, No Cry and Redemption Song that initially captured the attention and
appreciation of Tuff Gong and the Bob Marley estate. So the Chineke! musical
journey, via Abbey Road Studios, had begun.
Chineke! founder Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE explains, "As a purely trained classical
musician, the idea of being involved in a musical collaboration with the legendary
Bob Marley was truly mind-blowing. I ardently believe that all  genres of music
should be open to absolutely everyone, so it was wonderful for Chineke! to be able to
bring new orchestrations to these iconic tracks."
The Chineke! Orchestra was founded in 2015 by music professor and double bassist
Chi-Chi Nwanoku OBE. Under the motto of championing change and celebrating
diversity in classical music the ensemble made their debut performance at the
Queen Elizabeth Hall on London Southbank Centre in September 2015, and they
are now the resident orchestra there.
Tirelessly working to create opportunities for established and up-and-coming
ethnically diverse musicians and nurturing new talent by providing role models and
celebrating diversity in classical music, Chineke! were honoured at the 30 th
anniversary of The Royal Philharmonic Society RPS Awards with the inaugural
Gamechanger Award in 2019. Chineke! continue to be covered extensively by
national and international press and broadcast media, most recently by The Times
(UK) and The New York Times.
Bob Marley remains one of the 20th century most important and influential
entertainment icons. He has the second-highest social media following of any
posthumous celebrity. His Facebook page draws more than 70 million fans, ranking it
in the Top 20 Facebook pages and Top 10 among celebrity pages. In addition,
LEGEND is the 17 th  best-selling album of all time in the UK, having spent 1019
consecutive weeks on UK Official Album Chart.
