Kingston, 26 January 2023 – The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, says Reggae Month 2023 will have live events across the country for the entire month of February.
“It will be one month of entertainment, constantly, every day,” said Minister Grange.
Among the activities are tributes to Dennis Brown (on February 1); Bob Marley (on February 6); the weekly JARIA Wednesdays; the Children of the Icons and Emerging Artistes series; as well as the Reggae University Series.
“And it's not just entertainment, but it's also educational because we're going to be having symposia. We're going to be doing several interviews so that the public will have a better understanding of our personalities and their lives. We will have documentaries... and we will have an exhibition of dance hall posters over the years. We will also host tributes to some of our greats who have passed on, and we will have the Reggae Golden Awards. We will be awarding a number of our artistes who have contributed to Brand Jamaica and made the music what it is.”
The activities will launch with a church service this Sunday, January 29 at Fellowship Tabernacle, Fairfield Avenue in Kingston.
“We will have our praise and worship service at Fellowship Tabernacle and I'm inviting everyone to attend. It's really going to be an opportunity for us to give thanks to God and to also pray for continued health and strength and success in the sector.”
