Cedella Marley donates rare set of Bob Marley albums to Jamaica50 time capsule

Cedella Marley has donated a rare set of her iconic father Bob Marley's albums from her personal collection to the Jamaica50 time capsule. 
 
The capsule will be sealed at the Bank of Jamaica (BOJ), to be opened in 2062, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Jamaica's Independence.
 
The donation includes nine studio albums, as well as two live albums, including the critically acclaimed Catch a Fire, Burnin', Rastaman Vibration and Exodus, which was declared the Best Album of the Twentieth Century in 2001 by Time magazine.
 
Other items donated to the time capsule commemorating the first 50 years of Jamaican Independence are a Maroon abeng, relics unearthed from the Taino archaeological excavation at White Marl in St. Catherine, photographs of Jamaican prime ministers and governors general, posters featuring Jamaica's UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Blue & John Crow Mountains, Jamaican art and craft, as well as items of popular culture such as a poster of Dancehall Queen Carlene.
 
The process of filling the Jamaica50 time capsule is scheduled to be completed by the end of August. 
 
The capsule will be locked away following an official ceremony hosted by the governor of the BOJ.
