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.
Members of JARIA (meeting for Reggae Month)
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 for little or in most cases, no cost. It is also an exciting time for the industry as the media and entertainers alike 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, Exco Levi, Pentateuch, Jah9, Omari, Richie Stephens, Freddie McGregor and that is just to name a few. For a list of scheduled events check out JARIA’s website.
Maria Jackson Entertainment will be providing updates on Reggae Month every week until March 1st via www.mjent.net & www.mjmagazine.org.
Etana – I Rise – Artwork
Congratulations to Etana on the release of her 4th studio album ‘I Rise‘ which is quite simply a masterpiece – the best work thus far from this talented singer. Etana’s captivating vocals shine as listeners are taken on a journey to musical heaven.
Songs like “Emancipation,” “I Rise,” and “Stepping Out of Babylon” rally the righteous troops. There is encouragement offered in “On My Way,” while the social commentary laden “How Long” poses serious questions to the powers that be about their disregard for the underprivileged.
The sweet melodies of Etana’s powerful voice mesmerize with sultry delivery on “Love Song,” and reassuring confidence on “By Your Side.” On the black women’s anthem “Jamaican Woman,” we are reminded that the meaning of Etana’s name itself is the strong one, while “Selassie Is The Chapel.” and “Jah Jah,” are food for the soul.
All 15 tracks were produced to perfection by the living legend Clive Hunt together with internationally acclaimed instrumentalists including the great Sly and Robbie. I Rise would not disappoint as a gift for this holiday season and is an essential pick for and reggae collection.
