Join the Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music (CPR) this evening as they celebrate Black Music Month and Caribbean Heritage Month with a forum that examines Reggae’s influence on urban music in America. The forum which takes place at the 3Ten Lounge, 310 Bowery, (between Houston and Bleecker Streets) in lower Manhattan from 6:30pm to 10:30pm will also include live performances.
Kool Herc, the “Father of Hip Hop” will be on hand as a panelist, as will, Jon “FX” Crawford, award winning music producer, and publicist, deejay and radio host DJ Hard Hittin’ Harry who remains one of the most sought after party deejays in the tri-state area. Billboard contributor, Pat Meschino and educator/author Ptah Shabbaz, will lend their voices to the discussion as Commentators.
The evening’s showcase performance will feature Major Daps, Dub Poet Infinity as well as Hip Hop artist, SK of Pifstars Entertainment.
The forum is free and open to the public and the community is invited to come this evening and participate in what promises to be an exciting and well informed conversation. The forum will also be streamed live on CPRLive via www.cprreggae.org.
