Jimmy Cliff - Reggae Night

  1. We’re west Indians and also intuitively survivors. And while we take full cognizance of our successes and setbacks we don’t morbidly dwell on the latter. And Darcus Howe being the astute person that he was wouldn’t have wanted us to either.

    So let’s blend our grief at his passing with our celebratory remembrances of his life and give a characteristically rousing and distinctive West Indian send off, as this emblematic mixture of Trinidadian-Antiguan-and Bajan blood among that of other Afro-Caribbeans embarks on the final stage of the journey to his eternal Celestial Home.

    “An’ wuh bettah way tuh liff we spirit, gladden we sorrowful hearts and get we feet moving in dese circumstances dann we own distinctive West Indian reggae music, knowin’ dat you Darcus an’ de Angels up dere in Heaven are jamming along wid we too!”
