“Jamaica In My Head” Flash Mob in Union Square

10 May 2011

The Jamaica Tourist Board and Flash Mob America teamed up to give New Yorkers a taste of sun, sand and sea at the Jamaica Reggae Flash Mob in Union Square, NYC on May 9.

Featuring an exclusive dance remix of Ziggy Marley’s “Jamaica In My Head” the flash mob commemorated Marley Week and the 30th Anniversary of the passing of Jamaica’s music legend Bob Marley.

Over 200 reggae enthusiasts performed to a choreographed routine, which included Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt’s signature “Bolt to the World” dance move. The crowd also witnessed surprise appearances by notable Jamaicans, including Devon Harris, a member of the first Jamaican bobsled team, which inspired the movie Cool Runnings, members of the Jamaican national women‟s basketball team, Jamaican chess master Maurice Ashley, among others, who walked down a Jamaica-branded runway.

The event took place in New York City’s Union Square on the south side at 14th Street.
