Jimmy Cliff was one of the earlier stars of Jamaican music to gain acknowledgement outside the borders of the island at a time when reggae was very much still in its infancy.

He began in the mid- ska era with hits like "Hurricane Hattie", "Dearest Beverley", "King of Kings" and "Miss Jamaica". After successes with key reggae hits like ' Wonderful world , beautiful people ' and ' Vietnam ' in 1971 he had the opportunity to play, with great effectiveness, the lead role in "The Harder They Come ," the Perry Henzell film which played an important role in popularising Jamaica and its music all over the world thanks to a fabulous soundtrack featuring songs such as ' Harder They Come ' and ' You can get it if you really want '.

With peaks as' Reggae night ' and his cover version of ' I Can See Clearly Now " by Johnny Nash, his career is an outstanding example of artistic longevity. His 2012 album "Rebirth" produced by Tim Armstrong of Rancid won a Grammy.
