Jah cure

Jah Cure, one of reggae’s most revered voices and artists will be among the acts performing at Dominica’s 14th Annual World Creole Music Festival, which will take place October 29 – 31, 2010.

Iyah Cure, known as Jah Cure, is a Jamaican reggae musician who was given the name Jah Cure by Capleton, who he met while growing up in Kingston. His first hit debuted in March 1997 when he released the single, “King in this Jungle” which was a duet with Sizzla. He continued to release a steady stream of singles that won him popular acclaim. His top hits include, “Longing for Love,” and “True Relections,” plus he is the distinctive voice on Jason Maraz’s “I’m Yours (Remix).”

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Jah Cure to Dominica’s World Creole Music Festival,” commented Colin Piper, CEO/Director of Discover Dominica Authority. “Securing the appearance of such a popular reggae artist as Jah Cure raises awareness for World Creole Music Festival and his unique style of reggae will complement the traditional Creole music which this event celebrates.”

Highly anticipated by fans of this style of music throughout the world, the 14th Annual World Creole Music Festival will be held October 29 – 31, 2010. A well-established Caribbean and international platform for artists of the genre, the festival is widely seen as one of the only truly indigenous music events in the Caribbean. Over the years, the festival has attracted some of the most renowned musical groups and soloists from the Creole-speaking World.

Past performances included premier acts such as Exile One, Kassav, Gramacks/New Generations, Tabou Combo, Swinging Stars, La Perfecta and others as well as solo artists like Sean Paul, Ophelia, Tania St. Valle, Sakis, Franky Vincent, Sweet Mickey and Maxi Priest.

Disappointed in the organizers. I am not seeing the diversity that makes the festival truly World Class. Its the same old performers recycled, apart from what looks like more reggae acts. By the way what is the definition of Creole? On another note, you would think that with the official launching this week, that their website would be up to date. Nope. Its the same one from last year. After 14 years we are not there yet. I still cant tell online what the line up is. We won’t even broach the subject of online ticket purchases yet. Thats too World Class for this.
