Kingston, Jamaica (PRWEB) January 18, 2012
As the excitement builds leading up to the 16th staging of the JAMAICA Jazz and Blues Festival, HBO will tonight re-broadcast the special documentary feature One Love: Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival 2011. The feature can be seen on HBO on Flow Channel 518 at 7:30pm. In addition, the feature is available for viewing at any time on HBO OnDemand until Wednesday, January 25th.
When HBO first broadcasted the programme in September 2011, Jamaica was once again placed in the international spotlight with exposure to millions of homes in countries across Latin America and the Caribbean. HBO’s partnership with Flow and the Ministry of Tourism served as a boon to the Festival and also to the island, highlighting the features of Jamaica as a business and tourism destination.
For 2012, HBO will again team up with Flow and The Ministry of Tourism to create another documentary to capture the history making event when the JAMAICA Jazz and Blues Festival celebrates 50 years of Jamaican Independence next weekend, January 26 to 28 at the Greenfield Stadium in Trelawny.
This year’s festival will see legendary Jamaican performers such as Marcia Griffiths and Yellow Man performing on the same stage as international musical sensations Celine Dion and Cee Lo. The exciting line-up also includes Head of State, Destra Garcia, Shaggy, Chris Martin, Earl Klugh, Ritchie Stevens and Tami and Tessanne Chynn.
