Kaya is the tenth studio album released by Bob Marley and the Wailers in 1978. The album consists of tracks recorded alongside those present on the Exodus album in 1977. The album has a very relaxed, laid back sound, lacking much of the militant quality of the Wailers lyrically and musically. They received criticism for 'going soft' as a result of the general sound of the album as well as the theme: songs primarily revolving around love, as well as marijuana.

Kaya was initially released just one month ahead of Bob Marley & The Wailers headlining the legendary One Love Peace Concert at The National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica on April 22, 1978, an event that featured 16 of reggae’s biggest acts. One Love Peace was heralded as Marley’s triumphant return to his native soil, following his long exile in London after having fled the country as a result of a December 1976 assassination attempt at his Kingston homestead.

And the palpable musical tension that simmered beneath the surface on the Wailers' earlier material gave way to a more laid-back riddim that was more comfortable but a bit less demanding. Kaya presented a gentler and friendlier version of Bob Marley & the Wailers, but it also documented Marley and his group at the peak of their abilities

Easily the best Bob Marley album on Island. Kaya", "Satisy my Soul", and "Sun is Shining" may all appear on earlier recordings made with Lee Perry, but these fresh renditions don't seem over produced, and all work wonderfully here. There are some beautiful lyrics and the mood is mellow. The big spliff on the back cover says everything. Bob Marley - Kaya 1978 Full Album 75:01. BOB MARLEY & THE WAILERS ~ Sun Is Shinning 5:04.

Bob Marley & The Wailers. Released March 23, 1978. Kaya (Remastered) Tracklist. 1. Easy Skanking Lyrics. 3. Sun Is Shining Lyrics. The Kaya album was recorded one year after the assassination attempt on Marley’s life. It has sometimes been criticized for having abandoned revolutionary concepts in favor of more light-hearted love songs. To this, Marley responded: People don't understand that we live in this earth too. We don't sing these songs and live in the sky. I don't have an army behind me-if I did, I wouldn't care, I'd just get more militant! Because I'd know, well, I have 50,000 armed youth and when I talk, I talk from strength.

The tenth full-length studio album by legendary Jamaican Reggae band. By 1978, Bob Marley was by far the best-known Reggae musician in the world and a major star in the . and Europe as well as his native Jamaica. Kaya" presented a gentler and friendlier version of Bob Marley & the Wailers, but it also documented Marley and his band at the peak of their abilities. The nuance in Marley's vocals on "Running Away", "She's Gone", and "Is This Love" showed how much he'd grown as a performer since "Catch a Fire", and his passion elevates "Misty Morning" into one of the album's highlights. Kaya" is a Roots Reggae album. It consists of tracks recorded alongside those present on the "Exodus" album in 1977.
