Time to Reggae at Summer Jam

Date Posted: 1999-09-18

The 4th Reggae Summer Jam, produced by the King Ryukyu Crew, great supporters of the reggae music scene on the island, will be held at the Human Stage this Friday. This event is open to all reggae lovers and promises to be one of the hottest late summer jams where Ackee and Saltfish, twin dance hall kings from Nagoya and also event organizer Turner, the crew’s main man DJ, will thrill you and chill you.

Over the past few years, Japanese hip hop and reggae have enjoyed enormous successes and equally large followings. This year Ackee and Saltfish, visit Okinawa as part of their Japan Tour ‘99.

But are you saying you don't understand Japanese ? Hey, that don’t matter none, as these boys know all languages. The twin dance hall kings entered the music scene as punk rockers during their high school days, but quickly turned to reggae. After that they moved to Brooklyn to live with the Jamaican community, then later to Jamaica itself, living the real Jamaican dream for 4 years, where they absorbed the culture and picked up a Jamaican accent. In 1995 they returned to Japan and recorded Hit in Japan. English, Japanese - hey, didn’t you know music transcends all boundaries!

The show kicks-off at 9 p.m. Tickets to the 4th Reggae Summer Jam cost ¥3500 in advance, ¥4000 at the door and are available at Reggae record shop Blue Beat near KAB. Call 936-9530.
