Happy Birthday to Mr. Robert Nesta Marley OM, (1945-1981). Today we celebrate a legend, a life cut short quite early, at the age of 36 but to us, to me he still lives on. He brought Reggae music to the world and I’m glad I 

Expression Wednesdays: Reggae Mecca

Hi Everyone 🙂

In Jamaica, February is Reggae Month, and so today my second favourite month begins; also today is the Birthday of a legendary Reggae icon, Dennis Emmanuel Brown. The theme for Reggae Month 2017 is “Reggae Mecca.”

Reggae Month, the celebration of not just a genre but a culture, I look forward to February every year for the festivities, the liveliness, and the free concerts. Some key Reggae Month activities are the Reggae Wednesday concerts at Mandela Park in Half Way Tree, Kingston, the first one is tonight. As well as JaRIA’s Reggae Open University sittings, every week, where topics relating to Reggae music and the industry are discussed by a panel of qualified persons. Apart from those, the Reggae month calendar will show you most of this month’s activities. Come out to the concert tonight! The theme is “Di Root.”

We celebrate you Dennis, thank you for the great music, to us you still live on. Take a listen, and enjoy because I ended up making a small playlist 🙂

Reggae Month Whiteboard Series

Hello Everyone 🙂

I’d like to highlight how Kulture Shocked celebrates Reggae Month, this only goes to show you don’t have to be in Jamaica to celebrate.

“I would post a quote from a reggae song on the whiteboard outside my room along with the singer’s name and song title. Feel free to join in the Reggae Month Whiteboard Series. It doesn’t have to be on a whiteboard, it could be a tweet or a status update.”
