Hey Warriors and lovers,
I'm excited to be hosting the first Reggae Month celebration here in Singapore paying tribute to Robert Nesta Marley on his birthday. From arriving back in the Lion City 2 years ago and seeing little to no Reggae culture to this celebration - we have come a long way!
I would like to make a statement on the flyer image as I have a great respect for Bob Marley and the Rasta message he spread. We do not promote the smoking of cigarettes or Bob Marley smoking ciggys. In fact the work I have done with the Singapura Dub Club has the aim to change the stereotype that is predominant here in SE Asia of Reggae music being only related to the image of Bob smoking. Bob was a father, an artist, a footballer and a legend - yet this what the mainstream wants to portray to prevent the masses from discovering the greater message. We are working with the venue Refuge, to change this flyer image as we speak. Please come through to the event tonight and experience what Reggae Culture is BEYOND the cliches. We have Jerk chicken and corn grilling on the rooftop, a Rasta market with hand made goods as well as selectas that have curated their music just for this special occasion. Most of all, Reggae music is about vibe and community... lookin' forward to vibin' with you.
