Channel O series Jamrock 5 â€“ the only place in Africa to get a taste of the sights and the music of Jamaica , all delivered in crazy African_style!
Broadcast on Thursday 7 January 2010 at 21:00, Jamrock 5 is essential viewing for anyone who has a feeling for Reggae and Dancehall and wants to get connected with the artists and songs that are big on the Jamaican scene right now. Boom! (as KB would say!).
Music from the likes of Richie Spice, Courtney John, Voice Mail featuring Busy Signal, Dâ€™Angel, Sean Paul, Chuck Fenda featuring Cherine Anderson, Vybz Cartel, Assassin, Bugle and Raine Seville are hot on the Jamrock charts, as KB and Naeto C countdown from five to one during each episode.
There are also interviews â€“ watch out for Raine Seville talking about her video â€˜Slippery When Wetâ€™ and being the first lady of DASECA and many more.
KB and Naeto also go toe_to_toe in their bid to bring viewers the most interesting and best spots in Jamaica â€“ both hot and deeply historic.
Viewers can get a glimpse of the Bob Marley Museum, the Half Way Tree Transport Centre, and the Sabina Park Cricket Stadium in Kingston as well as Rickâ€™s CafÃ© in Nagril, a 17th Century British Naval Base and the Old Court House in Lucea, the legendary Techniques Recording Studio and much, much more â€“ all courtesy of Jamrock 5 tour guides KB and Naeto C!
Viewers can also see if KB and Naeto Câ€™s dream of making music with some Jamaican hotshots comes true.
As KB said at the start of Jamrock 5â€™s recording, â€œThink about it this way, two guys from Africa coming together to put Africa on the world map by working with Jamaican artists. On One Drop, I did a track with Mr Vegas so I am going back to get my cut!â€
