In the midst of Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of independence, HBO and Flow will host a private screening of the HBO Special, Where the Music is Always Alive: Jamaica Jazz & Blues 2012.
The program, debuting in the Caribbean August 4th and throughout Latin America in September, showcases an important musical event of the region, which this year includes artists such as Celine Dion, Shaggy, Damian Marley, John Holt and Jully Black.
“We are thrilled to be sharing in this celebratory moment, together with Flow, here in Kingston,” said Javier Figueras, corporate VP of Affiliate Sales for HBO Latin America Group. “By investing in local productions, we continue to bring Jamaica’s cultural wealth and natural beauty to a forefront throughout both the Caribbean and Latin American regions.”
In addition to celebrating Jamaica’s musical tradition, the HBO Special also brings the emblematic landscapes and scenic views of Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Dunns River Falls and the Blue Mountains into sharp focus.
While capturing the rhythmic beats of Reggae, Ska, Mento and Rocksteady, Where the Music is Always Alive: Jamaica Jazz & Blues 2012 also highlights the island’s appeal as a sunshine paradise.
