JAMAICA 50TH LOS ANGELES CELEBRATION


Press Release
In Celebration of Jamaica’s 50th Independence Celebration  SKAmania will be triumphantly hosting  Los Angeles First Annual SKA & REGGAE Festival,
 Saturday & Sunday, August 4 & 5  2012
Los Globos Night Club located at 3040 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles California 90026
This event will feature some of Jamaica’s legendary performers along with over 15 bands.
About JAMAICA’S Independence 50th Anniversary
Jamaica though fundamentally remained a member of the Commonwealth of Nations has been an independent nation for 50 years. This feat was achieved on August 6th 1962. It was also a year or two prior that the amazing and unconquerable spirit of the artists and musicians joined forces and gave birth to the renowned art form Ska. In later years 1966-1968 the creative and innovative drive of those same Jamaican musicians fashioned the short lived Rocksteady, that later evolved into Reggae which has since captured the imagination of people around the world.

This year’s memorable Golden Jubilee is truly a significant milestone in Jamaica’s growth and development. Jamaicans at home and abroad along with Jamaican music lovers are celebrating the 50th anniversary in varied forms and believe me, Southern California is no exception.
Case in point, the First Annual LA Ska & Reggae Festival will feature  15 remarkable and exciting bands including Jamaica's legendary performers
 
 
                   


Norma "the phenomenal Studio One Queen" Frazer, who recorded such mega-hits as “The First Cut”, “Heartaches” and “Ten Commandments Of a Woman”, backed by the superb Delirians.

Garth  Dennis formerly of “Black Uhuru and Wailing Souls will sing his signature “Slow Coach”, "Word Sound", and "For the Love of Money".

Additionally, a splendid array of SKA, Rocksteady and Reggae artist and bands from all across the Southland will be paying homage to the Music of Jamaica. Artists such as -The Delirians, The Soulutionaries, Queen P, The Debonaires, The Revivers, Lightening Flash, LA Crucial, Rancovacoco, Matamoska, Pachamama, Hijos de Sol.
Soulfool Selector, DJ Zapadru, and DJ Blazing Fire will be the featured DJs.
Additional acts will be added.
 
              


This spectacular event will be hosted by the talented singer songwriter, musician, and BENJY   MYAZ, Jamaica’s Statesman of the Arts and Reggae Ambassador.

This event  is produce by the organizers of SKAmania, a monthly showcase of SKA and Rocksteady music artist and performers, both legendary and new-school.
 Los Globos Night Club/ rubAdub Reggae Lounge  has been the hub for these events and is located at 3040 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles (Silver Lake Area), California.
Doors at 6PM~ 18 and over are welcome.
Early advance tickets are in limited quantities for $10 ~at www.laskareggaefest-eac2.eventbrite.com/ more details at 323-666-6669

The Ladies of Ska with the Skatalites featuring NORMA FRASER

March 22, 2012, 10:11 am

Norma Fraser/Skatalites Japan Re-Issue

 
It is possible that the late great Coxsone Dodd had personal reasons for doing so, but despite the legendary status of this tune among Ska connoisseurs, Freedom Sound has never once seen release on 7 inch – until now. The players and tune itself hardly need any introduction, except to say that even among the Skatalite’s enormous output, there are very few tracks that feature performances with quite the same awesome power. The lack of trombone melody suggests that this might have been recorded during one of Don Drummond’s stints at Bellevue mental asylum. Despite his absence, however, this is a Ska instrumental that is rivaled by few others. The flip side is a lovely up tempo Ska tune from Norma Fraser, who is best known for her hit version of the First Cut is the Deepest, also recorded for Coxsone Dodd.
