Jamaicans gearing up for Reggae Month 2015
As the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association gets ready to host several events across the island in honor of Reggae Month (February), Jamaicans are gearing up for what is expected to be a high energy, fun-filled series of live stage shows, dancehall sessions, panel discussions and more.
The celebration of Reggae in the month of February is an annual event in Jamaica giving members of the public an opportunity to see their favorite Reggae and/or Dancehall artists perform live at little or in most case, no cost. It is also exciting times for persons in the industry as everyone from members of the media to selectors are usually engaged in one event or another.
Reggae month is also known as a major tourist attraction inviting Reggae enthusiasts from all over the world who would want to be in the home of Reggae not just for the entertainment but for the educational benefits as well. JARIA is always sure to include ongoing information sessions that deal with the history, business and technical aspects of Reggae music.
Some of the artists that will be hitting the stage to celebrate Reggae in February are Marcia Griffiths, Esco Levi, Pentateuch, Jah9, Omari, Ritchie Stephens, Protoje, Freddie McGregor and that is just to name a few.
