Broward County’s Centennial celebration welcomes the inaugural ONE Caribbean Music Festival, set for Dec. 13 & 14 inside Central Broward Regional Park, Ft. Lauderdale. Top performers from Reggae, Soca, Ska, Compas, Jazz and Salsa will create a fusion of Caribbean culture to reflect Broward’s multiplicity. As an official BROWARD 100 event, companies, local governments and business leaders are encouraged to reward employees, clients and customers by purchasing bulk festival tickets now.
For more than 20 years, festival founder Walter Elmore of Art of Music Productions has been producing and co-producing world-class events, from Montego Bay’s renowned Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival to St. Lucia Jazz Festival and Turks & Caicos Jazz & Blues. “This festival,” Elmore says, “will bring cultures and community together with music, food, art, craft, and an opportunity to give back through its ONE Toy campaign.”
ONE Caribbean Music Festival will present legendary Jamaica Reggae stars Sean Paul, Maxi Priest, Ritchie Stephens, and Queen of Reggae Marcia Griffiths, who will be honored for her 50 years of singing and performing; Puerto Rico’s Nestor Torres and Kat DeLuna; Haiti’s Kompa duo T-Vice with the legendary Tabou Combo; and Trinidad’s Ragga Soca King Bunji Garlin and his Soca star-wife Fay-Ann Lyons, and many more.
Scotchies, well known throughout Jamaica for its succulent Jerk chicken, pork, fish, and roast yam, is the festival’s title sponsor. Just in time for the holidays, patrons are being asked to bring one new, unwrapped toy for the ONE Toy Drive to benefit SOS Children’s Villages in the U.S. and the Caribbean.
