Falmouth, Trelawny, Jamaica,

Reggae sensation Gregory Anthony Isaacs (15 July 1951 – 25 October 2010) Milo Miles, writing in the New York Times, described Isaacs as "the most exquisite vocalist in reggae. His nicknames include Cool Ruler and Lonely Lover 

Ernie Smith (born Glenroy Anthony Michael Archangelo Smith 1948, Kingston, Jamaica) reggae singers, with a deep baritone voice, who had his greatest success in the late 1960s and 1970s

Peter Tosh, born Winston Hubert McIntosh (19 October 1944 – 11 September 1987), was a Jamaican reggae musician who was a core member of the band The Wailers (1963–1974), and who afterwards had a successful solo career as well as being a promoter of Rastafari.

Peter Tosh was born in Grange Hill, Jamaica, and was raised by his aunt. He began to sing and learn guitar at an early age, inspired by American radio stations. After a notable career with The Wailers and as a solo musician, he was murdered at his home during a robbery.

Freddie McGregor (born 27 June 1956, Clarendon, Jamaica)[1] has been variously a singer, musician and producer. According to Allmusic he is one of reggae's most durable and soulful singers, with a steady career that started in the 1960s, when he was just seven years old

Bob Andy (born Keith Anderson) emerged as a solo star in 1966 with the smash hit "I've Got to Go Back Home", a song which has become a much-loved anthem for Jamaicans. He had served his singing and songwriting apprenticeship with the legendary vocal group THE PARAGONS, which he founded with Tyrone (Don) Evans and Howard Barrett, later joined by John Holt. The Paragons had several hits for producer Coxsone Dodd including the Number One "Love At Last", penned by Bob.

Walk of Fame takes first steps

THE REGGAE Walk of Fame took its first seven steps with the official induction of its initial batch of seven reggae luminaries on Saturday night.

It was six persons, or in one case her two representatives, who made the few actual steps to the podium at the Talk of the Town on the Jamaica Pegasus' 17th floor, to which the induction ceremony had to be shifted after rain left the original garden location soggy.

And it was a very small, but very appreciative, gathering which Ras Astor Black greeted an hour past the slated 8:00 p.m. start, to the background music of the Reggae Walk of Fame Chanters drumming and guitar ensemble.

"It is the day for the world to see reggae in a new light, in a light where people see little Jamaica in a big, big way," Black, the creator of the Reggae Walk of Fame, said.

Before the official induction of King Yellowman, Culture, Charlie Chaplin, Tony Rebel, Barrington Levy and Cynthia Schloss, the last posthumously and whose daughter Divine and widower Winston Blake were on hand on Saturday evening while the others were all present, there were drumming tributes to Empress Menen and Rita Marley.

A representative of the seventh inductee, Third World, was said to be on his way but had not arrived when The Gleaner left the Pegasus.

The evening's guest speaker, Jennifer Nugent-Hill, vice-president, Public and Government Affairs, Tropical Shipping, after remembering the pride she felt on returning to Jamaica for the first time in 15 years, gave the example of the place she lived after she was nine years old. "About two years ago, the US Virgin Islands passed a law," she said, adding that it was a young Senator who pushed it through.

"What they did, he wanted the music of the US Virgin Islands, quelmbe, to be the official form of music and all the people who made that music would be forever honoured in US Virgin Islands history... At every government activity, the only music that will be allowed to be played is quelmbe, so it can be recognised all over the world," she said.

She expressed concern that in many commercials advertising Jamaica "I have to ask 'where is the reggae beat'?"

"I think we are embarking on a historical journey tonight," Nugent-Hill said. "There is a new horizon coming into view. It is reggae and tourism in synergy and harmony, showing the true culture of Jamaica."

It was she who handed over the commemorative awards and said the words to officially induct those who are making the first steps on the Reggae walk of Fame. The first person up was Joseph 'Culture' Hill. "I used to be a sign artist before and I know the meaning of art. This look to me like when I sweat, when I red, red red, working hard to hold up Jamaica and not let it go down like the tail of the cow, like Marcus Garvey say," he said.

"We need no coward hearted me in the reggae band, who are afraid to die. We call for valiant-hearted men, who look like men of war," Hill said, to a round of applause.

Hollywood has its Walk of Fame.

 

Now, Jamaica—long a fertile incubator of plenty notables in the world of entertainment from music to film, theatre and dance—is on the verge of birthing its own.  

 

Dubbed the Reggae Walk of Fame, the mile-long strip along the concourse leading to the Reggae Cultural Village will be lined with retail memorabilia and merchandising outlets named for the inductees.

 

It will also serve as an entertainment museum at the Bob Marley School for the Arts Institute, a proposed 200-acres sport, educational and amusement, hotel and condo complex in Trelawny on Jamaica’s North Coast.

 

A key attraction at the Institute, the Reggae Walk of Fame will be embedded with more than 2,000 stars bearing the names of reggae celebrities honored by the Institute for their contributions to the entertainment industry.

 

The Reggae Walk of Fame, like its Hollywood counterpart, will immortalize the Keepers of the Flame and
present day story tellers in Jamaican arts and culture.

Criteria: - These Reggae artists were chosen on thier impact, lasting popularity, influence, and talent in Traditional and Contemporary Reggae music.

Background: Reggae - Around 1960, in the slums of Kingston Jamaica, where the local bands were playing a musical mixture of American R&B, Caribbean, and pan-African sounds, drummers began to emphasize the afterbeat, the 2nd and 4th beats (4/4 time) in unison with the piano and guitar while the bass played walking quarter notes. The musicians called the sound "Upside-down R&B". It soon became known as "Ska". As time passed Ska slowed the beat, lost it's brass sound and morphed into "Rocksteady", performed with fewer musicians and using more harmony vocals. Around 1968 the influences of Rastafari and Africanism along with political and social unrest in Jamaica gave birth to "Reggae", with a slower, stripped-down, less "Pop-like" sound often with accents added on the 3rd beat. Today the term "Reggae" applies broadly to all the Jamaican born music that contains the original afterbeat rhythm.
