Griot Music launches live music campaign
Guitarist Seretse Small, CEO of Griot Music Publishing, will continue his dream when on Tuesday, August 5, 2008 he launches his Live Music Nation (LMN) campaign, an effort to provide live music in Kingston, the Jamaica capital, 7 nights a week at different locations.
According to Small, a veritable jazz and reggae guitarist, Griot Music launching of LMN will bring 7 days a week of high quality performers in Kingston. " This will lead to the development of strong artists who can effectively tour the world with the newest sounds out of Jamaica".
"This is just the beginning of a much needed change in the Jamaican music industry for these artists will move on to record albums, promoting their albums though touring and Griot Music will grow a valuable and diverse catalogue", says Small via the Griot Music website http://griotpublishing.com/

The musicians/performers to make the rounds are aspiring vocalists, Bijean Gayle, Bridgez, Janine Cunningham, Luke Dixon, Mario Evans, Nina Karle, and Ricardo Suave, reggae bands, Chalice and Gas Money, jazz pianists Dennis Rushton, Dr. Kathy Brown,
Ozou'ne, and Kamila Hamilton, and trumpeter Ian Hurd
