Students, colleagues, friends and fellow musicians who have taken my Music and Life of Bob Marley class and many who have followed my posts/BLOG covering many of my trips to the island, have asked and sometimes screamed at me; “WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE ME/US TO JAMAICA!”
Finally, I’ve teamed up with my good bredren and master percussionist Maroghini (who’s toured with Jimmy Cliff, recorded with Damian and Stephen Marley and worked with just about every reggae legend you can imagine) and a fantastic, socially conscious tour company called “Travel To Do Good,” to offer:
This is a 9-day trip to Kingston, JA (February 2-10, 2019) where, hosted by myself and Maroghini, you will get very deeply inside reggae culture from the absolute source of this music. We will take you to jam sessions and large and small concerts. We will take you to a Rastafarian encampment high in the Blue Mountains to experience real Rastafarian Nayabinghi. We will take you into some of Kingston’s most notable recording studios. We will take you to the Bob Marley Museum on his birthday and partake in the all day/night musical celebration put on by the Marley foundation filled with performances by reggae stars and up and coming artists. We will interview some of the biggest names in reggae as well as side musicians who play in their bands. We will take you to the gorgeous Portland coast for some beach and R&R time. And all of this with commentary and lively progressive discussions lead by your hosts who have committed their lives to overstanding reggae music from deep passion.
If you’ve pursued your interest in playing reggae and are looking to quadruple the depth of understanding of this incredible musical art form, this trip is for you!
