Smile Jamaica/Africa Unite
Well, the back to Africa movement should be interesting in Jamaica, when the two cultures meet on the 23rd of this month. This is Reggae Month so this should be interesting. The concert at the James Bond Beach in Oracabessa.
This Bob Marley inspired concert should be not only a wonderful tribute to Bob but to reggae music on a hold. The combination of two remarkable events, this collaboration is the result of Ghetto Youths International in collaboration with the Rita Marley Foundation.
Some of the performers on marquee include, The Melody Makers (which includes the sisters Cedella and Sharon). the seminal, The I Threes ( Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths and Judy Mowatt), The Black Uhuru, Capleton, Taurrus Riley, Richie Spice, Spragga Benz, Lutan Fyah ,Cococ Tea , Alborosie, Etana and IFrica, Dean Fraser, Ernie Ranglin,, Javaughn and Sound Systems Stone Love and Gully Bank. Mutabaruka and Rihanna should also bring a wonderful addition to this concert.
