‘A Reggae Music Journey’ , Pop-up Exhibition at the Jamaican Consulate in New York

Published

A large number of Jamaicans and friends of the island turned out on Friday evening to witness the opening of the “A Reggae Music Journey” pop-up exhibition in celebration of the Reggae Month of February, at the Jamaican Consulate in New York.

The exhibition is a historical display documenting the history of the Jamaican musical genre, and is being held in collaboration with producers VP Records.
The pop-up features artifacts including historic vinyl records from Van Pelt’s collection, and a platinum sales award for Sean Paul’s Dutty Rock LP presented to company President Randy Chin.
In declaring the exhibition open, Jamaica’s Consul General to New York, Alsion Wilson said the Consulate of Jamaica was honoured to join with the rest of the world in celebrating Reggae Month.
“This exhibition over the next three weeks, will afford Jamaicans and friends of Jamaica the opportunity to view and to have a better understanding and appreciation of the genesis and evolution of Reggae music,” Wilson said.
“From its birth, Reggae music has given voice to the voiceless and has provided numerous opportunities to Jamaicans of various socio-economic backgrounds to leave a lasting legacy both in Jamaica and around the world,” the Jamaican Consul General declared.
She pointed out that “Reggae music has left a significant mark globally. This is evidenced by the designation by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to add Reggae music to the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2018.”
She highlighted the recent success of the “young sensation Mikayla Simpson, also known as Koffee, who last Sunday, became the youngest and first female Reggae artiste to cop the Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. This is testament to the determination and strong willpower which we as Jamaicans have for success”.
“Reggae Month was first launched in 2008. Here we are 12 years later, hosting the first Reggae Music Exhibition which I know will certainly not be the last,” she said.
In her remarks, co- founder of VP Records, Patricia Chin, told the large audience that the exhibition chronicles the over 40 years that the company has been operating in the United States and its over sixty years of operation in Jamaica.
She said her that family thought it was very important to give Jamaicans an opportunity to view VP’s contribution safeguarding and nurturing Reggae music.
An eight-panel display tells the label’s history dating to its origins as Vincent and Patricia Chin’s Randy’s Record Mart in Kingston in the late 1950s, extending to the present and featuring its 40-year run in Jamaica, Queens, New York. The story of the company’s global impact and sustained relevance is woven into the story of Reggae itself.
Some of the genre’s most admired artists, including Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Beres Hammond, Barrington Levy, Garnett Silk, Lady Saw, and Freddie McGregor — who either had key releases distributed by VP Records or were signed to VP Records — are featured in the exhibit as well.
The exhibit includes the work of photographers David Corio, Anders Jones, Wonder Knack, Jonathan Mannion, and Martei Korley.
On February 6, the birthday of Reggae icon, Bob Marley, the consulate will live stream the birthday celebrations from the Bob Marley museum on Hope Road in Kingston.
On February 21, The Reggae Music Journey exhibit will move from the consulate to the newly refurbished VP Records retail store in Queens.

In 2013, the match for the Super Cup of Europe was particularly interesting. “Bayern” and “Chelsea” determined the fate of the trophy. By the way, fans can watch live soccer with these clubs on the sports statistics website.

Both teams changed their coaches in summer 2013. Therefore, the match for the Super Cup was not just a struggle for the trophy, but also the next round of the legendary confrontation between Josep Guardiola and José Mourinho. And the meeting fully met all expectations.

“Chelsea” opened the scoring. As early as on 8 minute Fernando Torres scored. In the opening stages of the second half, Arjen Robben evened it up. The main time ended with the score 1-1. In the extra time both teams scored again. “Bayern” managed to equalize the score only on 120 +1 minutes. As a result, the score was 2-2.

The match went into a penalty shoot-out. The Munich side was victorious in it. All Bayern’s players converted their shots, while Romelu Lukaku was the only one to not score.

As a result, Josep Guardiola began his way at “Bayern” by winning the Super Cup. You can watch soccer matches involving this club live on the sports statistics website. Such a persistent confrontation is not always characteristic for Super Bowl matches. Therefore, the meeting between “Bayern” and “Chelsea” was a real highlight at the beginning of the European soccer season.

Why did Munich beat their opponents?

The Munich club was initially considered the favorite. However, it was clear that there would not be an easy walk for the team. The match was so hard fought. If you are watching the confrontation between the clubs now, but missed the livescore yesterday, the actual data can be found on the sports statistics website. 

So, if highlighting the main factors of the victory of “Bayern” in that fight, we can not go past:

  2. The team’s chemistry. All the interactions between the players were smooth. Thanks to this, their passes were virtually without errors, inaccuracies and faults.
  3. Vivid performances from leaders. For example, Ribery. Franck scored during the game and regularly created chances for his partners. It was he who was recognized as the best player of the meeting.

So, the Munich side deservedly won the trophy, although they encountered serious resistance.
