Reggae Music Awards In Canada

Posted by Molli Fire on Wednesday, 23May07

Canada is so progressive. Just leave it to the Great Northern country to start the First Annual Reggae Music Achievement Awards, which will not only recognize Caribbean culture, but also the Caribbean-influenced culture that has developed on Canadian soil. According to Reggae Country news :

The purpose of the Reggae Music Achievement Awards is to publicly recognize, encourage and highlight the contributors and outstanding individuals within the reggae music industry in Canada. This will be an annual event to express Caribbean culture and showcase the talent of the Canadian reggae artiste and the people behind the scenes.

The award show will take place at 7pm on June 10th, 2007 at Club Paradise in Toronto, Ontario. The categories plus nominees are as follows:
