So u feel American, European, African and Asian reggae artists should pay for performing and promoting reggae?? So Jamaicans musicians should pay for performing jazz or classical music then? I'm sorry I just don't get it, that just goes against everything that music is about: universal artistic expression. For the business side of it, that's what royalties are there for. PS. It's spelled REGGAE.
We are the creators of those as well!!! A lot of the people who created those genres were of Jamaican decent or had some affiliations. But its not about them its just about Raggae and please don't stray from the point!!! America, Europe, Asia and countless other places are profiting off our creations and we don't get a dime, and it has to change now not latter. Thanks for your feedback and thoughts.
I have found another author here in Jamaica that I admire, I love you Yvonne Coke!!! thank you for Perspectives from the Jamaican MAP (MOTTO-ANTHEM-PLEDGE)
The blindness we suffer is not genetic; we were not created that way. We are blind because we choose to focus on achieving our narrow selfish ends with indifference to the common good;the out of many one.
Thank you again Yvonne!
We need to earn from our creation which is Raggae the genre!!! Not just from the musical works and our lyrical abilities.
How can we really get some structure? #Regulation
Lets get the everyone on board first and then we can get our voices heard, we need to be of one voice but in numbers. will be keeping you all inform with updates so I'm asking all to bare with me, this is a tedious task. Thank you!
Please everyone no need to be confused about how our structures will be set out. It won't be far off what guidelines the other societies here have in place, so we wouldn't be competing with them; just making sure we protect the genre and our Jamaicans music images.
First, I don't see a petition spelled out here, so there is nothing to sign but the title which makes No sense. Secondly, it's reggae, not raggae.
Thanks to all who signed the petition Jah love a guidance to you all!!! Rastafari!
I'll be posting a news letter soon everyone so do stay tuned. This is a serious matter and those who fight against us through this process, know that what we are saying is true. By getting the rest of the world to pay us for our works we again well needed funds to put into our country's failing economy. Thank you all for your patients.
