The Pompano Beach Cultural Center Presents David I. Muir’s Reggae Reel - Moments in Music: A Photographic Exhibit of Reggae Masters

Gallery, Painting, Reggae, Photography
The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is proud to present a dynamic exhibit that celebrates the music, message and masters of reggae. David I Muir's collection of 26 iconic reggae-music performance photos will be on display at the venue from August 10 through September 30, 2018. The collection, appropriately entitled Reggae Reel - Moments in Music features stunning images of reggae royalty including Marcia Griffiths and Buju Banton, today's hottest artists including Tarrus Riley, Mavado and Chronixx, plus rising stars like Koffee and Sevana. The experiential exhibit will also feature a video installation and graphic montages featuring select lyrics. In addition, the Center is presenting a concert by Rootz of Music entitled, The American Roots of Jamaican Music on August 26, 2018. For more information, www.ccpompano.org. “I am thrilled to bring this collection to The Pompano Beach Cultural Center,” said Muir, whose photographs have been featured in national and international exhibits as well as the coffee table book, Pieces of Jamaica. "I've had a love affair with reggae for as long as I can remember. I took most of these images for my own, selfish gratification. Now, it's a welcome pleasure that I'm able to share them in this way.” Muir, a former disk jockey, manager of music talent and concert promoter, had a unique vantage point when taking these photos, and his love of the genre and its messages are evident in every shot. “The lyrics in reggae music are a path to the truth,” he said. “They teach us how to love and unite. Through this music and through the strength of the Jamaican culture, we can learn many lessons. That is why this exhibit, especially at this time, is so important.” Reggae originated in Jamaica in the 1960s as a rhythmic language giving voice to a voiceless people. At its origin, its lyrics shared messages of peace, unity, and the protest of injustice.

American Roots of Jamaican Music

Reggae
Rootz of Music will present its 4th Annual fundraiser, a musical extravaganza entitled American Roots of Jamaican Music: The Legacy at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center. This show chronicles the development of popular songs that were the foundation in both Jamaica and the Americas starting from the mid 1940’s to present time. The event will also honor some of the legends of the genre with the presentation of the Jamaican Music Excellence Awards. “Jamaican music has been a world-wide influence and through this Legacy event, we will take audience members on spectacular musical journey to experience the evolution of the art form,” said Felica Grey, President of Rootz of Music. Led by world class Jamaican born guitarist, composer, arranger, music instructor Eugene Grey, the show will also feature renowned percussionist Larry McDonald as well as singers Lady Tasha, Yishka, Gershi, Tedman Greaves, Endel I and Sabrina Williams along with the Radiance Major dancers performing the music of the popular artists of each era such as Louis Jordan, Harry Belafonte, Byron Lee and the Dragonaires. Special guest artist will be Sultan Ali, son of Prince Buster who recorded the classic song “Hard Man Fe Dead.” This innovative and entertaining musical presentation is staged to demonstrate the interconnectivity of American and Jamaican Music and how the two separate elements of two genres merged and became what is now known as Reggae and Hip Hop. The event will also feature the presentation of the 2nd Annual Jamaican Music Excellence Awards to music legends Mighty Sparrow, Lord Creator, Bobby Aitken, Billy Vernon, Patrick McDonald, Brian Atkinson, Fred Crossley, Fred Campbell, Trevor Lopez and Merritone Sound System. There will be a VIP reception starting 90 minutes prior to the performance for the awardees and VIPS to enjoy free Jamaican cuisine by Mama’s Kitchen and wine.
