Denmark should be involved in this event because reggae music and Jamaican culture is growing to a great extent in Denmark with popular reggae artists like Natasja, Bikstok, Eaggerstunn, Pharfar, Kaka, Wafande Klumben, and Raske Penge also during the 1980s, the Danish group Laid Back released the now world known reggae hit Sunshine Reggae, Tösedrengene and Gnags also released reggae influenced songs, in addition we should not forget the still talked about performance by Bob Marley at the 1978 Roskilde Festival which was a milestone in the history of the festival.
Jah Cure: the headliner for this event is at the forefront when refers to high grade reggae
entertainers, a household name for music lovers of the Diaspora. As an internationally acclaimed singer and songwriter.
Jah Cure is recognized today as “The High Priest of Reggae.” Born in Hanover, Jamaica on October 11, 1978, the young man with the voice of a canary. Was heard by the Jamaican music icon Beres Hammond who subsequently took Cure under his wings and began mentoring him in the studio and producing him.
Cure recorded and released several records, many of which topped the charts as # 1 singles. Two songs, “Jamaica,” produced by DZ Productions and “Longing For,” produced by Don Carleon, both hit # 1 on the Jamaican reggae charts and were international hits. Cure’s first album, “FREE JAH’S CURE,”
Beres Hammond produced Cure’s second album, “GHETTO LIFE,” which featured the single “Divide and Rule.” This song was voted the best song of that year.
As Jah Cure’s records saturated the airwaves globally and in 2007 Jah Cure has topped the music charts with three # 1 singles. First, it started with Call on me featuring his label mate Phyllisia, followed with you’ll Never Find, and presently the # 1 smash, Unconditional Love. His new single, Like I See It, featuring Rick Ross, and the re-mix with dance hall king Mavado, are starting to rock the international clubs and dance halls across the reggae Diaspora. This record is destined to be his fourth # 1 consecutive single.
Cure’s new album, “WORLD CRY,” with the first single off that album, “Unconditional Love,” recorded with his label mate, recently shot to the top of the charts and became the # 1 Reggae single worldwide. That collaboration was the first of many for Cure on the upcoming album. The album contains collaborations with Tupac, Keri Hilson, Mavado, MDMA, Rick Ross, Jazmine Sullivan, Shyne and several others, crossing the reggae, hip-hop, Latin, Pop and R&B genres.
Celebrating Jamaica 50 years is an indication of the strength of a people and the eternal legacy of the ones before who fought for great achievements with the motto out of many we are one.
