Abstract or Summary

Abstract This article addresses how representations and reception of Bob Marley and reggae in Aotearoa/New Zealand have changed, with special reference to recent local films. Marley and reggae in NZ have always been identified mainly with political protest and resistance to colonisation by Maori and Pasifika peoples, but this view simplifies the ways that popular music is mediated and remediated. Examples analysed here include a number of recent film and TV texts made by Maori and Pasifika that feature Marley and reggae.
