The “King of Soca” and the “Royal Family of Reggae” will reign over the stage at the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO)‘s Caribbean Fair at the historic South Street Seaport, in New York City on Tuesday, May 31, 2005. The Caribbean Fair is one of several consumer-focused events that form part of CTO’s annual Caribbean Week in New York.
The famous Arrow of Montserrat and the legendary Jamaican family group, Morgan Heritage of Jamaica, are among a number of popular regional performers scheduled to sweep New Yorkers and the Caribbean community off their feet during the weeklong celebration of Caribbean culture taking place from May 29 to June 4, 2005.
Arrow, whose hot, jumpy and infectious music has made him a Caribbean and world favourite, is best known for his international mega-hit, “Hot, Hot, Hot”. Over four million copies and 22 versions of the song have been recorded in 12 different languages.
The five siblings that make up Morgan Heritage are among the leading reggae acts in Jamaica today. They deliver their message with a warm, inclusive spirituality of roots reggae.
“The Caribbean artistes like Arrow and Morgan Heritage, who will perform at the Caribbean Fair have a seemingly endless supply of talent, great melodies, impeccable vocals, and great music stored in their bodies and will invigorate New York City,” said Hugh Riley, CTO’s director of marketing for the Americas.
“The CTO wishes to thank the various Caribbean governments who have assisted in helping the people of New York experience the excellence of Caribbean culture.”
