I just watched Marley Africa Roadtrip on Netflix. Be warned this is not a motorcycle documentary. At the end of the day the five episode series did not have to be a motorcycle filled bananza on two wheels. It has substance and character which propels the story forward with real thought-provoking content and becomes a wonderful tribute to Bob Marley’s heritage. The show revolves around three of Bob Marley sons (Ziggy, Rohan, and Robbie) who travel to South Africa. Along with taking a few motorcycles on their journey, they endeavor to set up a free concert in an effort to promote African Unity and Culture. The documentary is directed by David Alexanian, the same director of Long Way Down and Long Way Around. The documentary gave me a chance to immerse myself into unfamiliar territory while at the same time feeding my passion of cycles with morsels of Ducati bliss. The music of Bob Marley has never been my genre of choice but after watching this documentary, I did get my hands on some of his albums. In many ways I enjoyed Marley Africa Roadtrip better than a Long Way Round and a Long Way down. It felt more real and had more depth of scope.
