CaribPR WIRE, NEW YORK, NY: Over five decades of performances and more than 70 CDs later, award-winning Jamaican jazz maestro, Monty Alexander, is still thrilling jazz fans and introducing newbies to the genre with style. And this June, he is getting ready to do it all over again, as he gears up for a busy National Caribbean American Heritage Month in the United States.
Major Lazer and Busy Signal have done it again. Their combination hit Jump, which was released last year on Major Lazer's six-track EP, is featured in a hot new Bacardi TV ad that is in rotation in the US on NBC TV and other mainstream platforms.
Celebrate Caribbean American Heritage Month with the City of Miramar during a free, family-friendly event on Saturday, June 9 from 6-10pm at Shirley Branca Park located at 6900 Miramar Parkway.
