Alton Ellis’s Youngest Son Links With The Marley Brothers To Carry On His Own Musical Mission

Right after his performance with the Ghetto Youths International Crew at London’s IndigO2, Chris Ellis spoke with Reshma B about how he linked with Stephen and Damian Marley, his new music through the Ghetto Youths International crew, and his relationship with his legendary father, Alton Ellis, the godfather of rock steady. “It was like a lineage thing. It was more than that. Our fathers were in Trenchtown and Bob Marley was in Trenchtown. It’s that kind of ordained kind of angle I’m coming from. It was there.” Video after the jump.
