February 2021 is Reggae Month
It’s reggae month in Jamaica – online. ‘Come Ketch Di Riddim Virtually’, is the official line on a completely different festival for reggae. Covid-safe for global guests.
Jamaican Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, said that the virtual celebration will enable people to “get together and feel alright, even from a distance”. Bob Marley would approve.
What’s On – Reggae Month 2021
New training opportunities and master classes in publishing and copyright for songwriters, musicians and artistes will be a feature of this year’s Reggae Month.
Reggae Month 2021 kicks off on Sunday, January 31st, with a church service and continues throughout February with a string of virtual events.
They include the discussion series, Grounation, organised by the Jamaica Music Museum; Reggae Films Online; and Reggae Tune Fi Tune, a virtual sound clash.
While we’re all staying inside more, it’s a good month to catch up with the greatest documentary about British reggae and ska ever made. With special guests including Pauline Black, Jerry Dammers, Paul Weller and Don Letts, Reggae Britannia is a great way to catch up with the British side of music, flying the flag for the reggae and ska story.
