Greetings Idrins and Sistrens! Today I want to share with you some music. One of my Japanese friends usually had an event called “Caribbean Festival”, the first time I went to this event I was the cook. The next time I went I was among the performers. It was a relaxed setting and the vibe always Irie.
The sight and sounds of steel pans and various Japanese reggae artistes and bands was always something to marvel at and enjoy. I’m using the past tense because this friend has since moved back to Jamaica for two years on an exchange programme. I hope to interview her someday and allow her to share her reasons for her love of Jamaica with the community.
To the music : a few of our band members couldn’t make it but we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to share in the cultural exchange so we did what we could. Here you go :
