Could you be loved (Bob Marley Tribute) Grammy Awards 2013

Grammy tribute to Bob Marley – “Legend”sales up

KINGSTON, Jamaica, Monday February 25, 2013 – The detractors who panned the tribute to legendary Jamaican reggae star Bob Marley at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards on February 10 now have another reason to wipe the egg off their critical faces.   Just one week after the “Could You Be Loved” tribute rocked the Grammys, “Legend”, the 1984 Best of Bob Marley album, sold over 20,000 copies.   [listen to LEGEND album below]

Quite apart from the response it generated at Los An]eles’ Staples Centre – with the audience of celebrities on its feet, many jamming throughout the set – the collaboration by the iconic musician’s sons Ziggy and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, Barbados’ six-time Grammy award-winner Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Sting has refocused attention on the music and message of the undisputed king of reggae, who died from cancer at age 36 in 1981.      [Read more]

 Mr. Frederick Alleyne  will present a paper entitled:

“Barbadian Migration to British Guiana,1840-1960: The Search for ‘El Dorado'”

Introduction

Guyanese migration to Barbados and other Caribbean territories in the 20th century is now the subject of much debate but the reverse was the case in colonial times when British Guiana was the destination of thousands of Barbadian and West Indian workers. The debate on migration during the 19th century on the issues of national economic development of the countries that sent the migrant and those that received them are not that different from the present discussion.
