Of all the Jamaican traditions, what's your favorite? Is it the food or the drinks?...the music or the dance?...the sports or the fun?...which is it? I got to tell ya, I love them all!
Foods, drinks, reggae music, dancing, sports, singing, celebrations, fun...it doesn't matter...we treat them all with the same respect.
We celebrate our reggae icons such as Bob Marley and Wailers, the I-threes (Judy Mowatt, Rita Marley, and Marcia Griffiths) Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, John Holt, Beres Hammond, Gregory Isaacs, Shabba Ranks,...to name a few.
