According to the Mayor of Kingston, Senator Councilor Delroy Williams, planning for Reggae month is now in high gear, and a number of different activities are set to take place.
“February is Reggae Month, and we are looking at a series of activities to celebrate the Month. We will update the Council by way of communication of these activities so that, by the time we get to February, we will be far advanced in planning,” said Williams.
The Mayor said the annual celebration, which is an important line item on the Council’s calendar of events, will again seek to showcase the best of Jamaica’s culture.
On January 9, 2008, the Government of Jamaica officially declared February as Reggae Month to highlight and celebrate the significant impact of the music genre on the country’s social, cultural, and economic development.
In addition, the birthdays of two of Reggae Music’s late icons are commemorated during the month.
The ‘Crown Prince of Reggae’ – Dennis Brown, is celebrated on February 1, and the renowned ‘King of Reggae,’ Robert Nesta Marley, on February 6.
