Britain’s Got Reggae, too, says UK promoter
Contrary to the belief that Jamaica’s reggae music is being appropriated by entertainers across the globe, especially in the United States and Europe, Leicester resident and founder of Britain’s Got Reggae, Cyrlene Braithwaite, told The Sunday Gleaner that this is not the case. “Sometimes it is not about people stealing or earning off another country’s culture. For example, in the United Kingdom (UK), there are actually a lot of talented people of Jamaican heritage or who have migrated from the Caribbean, while a few are just passionate about reggae’s influence and presence,” she said.
