Abu Dhabi: World of Music, Art and Dance (Womad) organisers have announced that Damian Marley, son of Reggae legend Bob Marley and acclaimed musician in his own right, will not be performing as part of the festival's closing line up due to illness.

The highly anticipated artist's inability to perform is sure to disappoint many who were looking forward to watching him perform live Saturday night.
