ALBUMS by Ziggy Marley and Snoop Lion have made the preliminary list for Best Reggae Album at next year's Grammy Awards.

The Grammys are scheduled for February.

According to, Marley's Ziggy Marley in Concert and Snoop Lion's Reincarnated are likely frontrunners to win the award.

Ziggy Marley in Concert was released last December, but like most of Marley's work, little has been heard of it in Jamaica.

Marley is a multiple Grammy winner as a solo act and with the Melody Makers which included his sisters Sharon and Cedella and brother Stephen.

Reincarnated was released in April and reflected a change in sound and faith for the former 'gangsta' rapper known as Snoop Dogg.

An interesting inclusion is California band Fortunate Youth whose It's All A Jam album also made the preliminary list.

Bands from the American west coast including Rebelution and Grounation are among the most popular reggae acts in the United States.

The National Academy of Recordings, Arts and Sciences will name the five nominees for Best Reggae Album on November 11.
