Reggae Show in New York Pays Tribute to Jamaica’s 50th Anniversary of Independence

The Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music will hold its annual Reggae Culture Salute concert, featuring roots-reggae to celebrate Jamaica’s 50th Anniversary of Independence on November 3, 2012, in New York. The show stars Luciano and Mr. Vegas and features Nyahbinghi drumming and rituals, video presentations, and performances by Ossie Dellimore, Tayazawan, Major Daps, Tony Rankin, Sister Cindy, and Major One. The show will be held at Nazareth Regional High School Performance Center, 475 E. 57th St. (between Clarendon Road and Avenue D).

The event pays special tribute to Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of independence and marks the 82nd anniversary of the coronation of Emperor Haile Selassie I and Empress Mennen of Ethiopia. And there’ll be a special salute to “independence babies” — Jamaicans born, with the nation, in 1962, said CPR head Sharon Gordon, who will proudly celebrate her 50th birthday at the affair.
