As most of the world is at home amid the global coronavirus pandemic. The Jamaica Tourist Board is sending out some positive vibes with a new Spotify playlist aimed at helping to lift our spirits.
Called “Every Little Thing Is Gonna Be Alright,” the Spotify playlist features a broad spectrum of Jamaican classics, from fresh artists like recent Reggae Grammy-award winner Koffee and Tessanne Chin to music icons like Bob Marley, Burning Spear and Big Youth, among others.
The “Irie Vibes” playlist of course gets its name from the lyric of the Bob Marley song, “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.”
All of Jamaica’s musical greatness is here, whether you like dancehall, ska, roots reggae or conscious reggae or a little bit of everything.
“The island of Jamaica hopes to ease your worries and virtually transport you to Jamaica with a specially curated Spotify playlist. Featuring the best of the island’s musical legends,” the Jamaica Tourist Board said in a statement. With melodies from Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Beenie Man and more.”
“It reminds us to keep our heads high and attitude bright.”
With many of us staying in our homes and distancing ourselves, it’s a refreshing dose of escapism. Something we all need a bit of right now. It’s a reminder of why the Caribbean is more than a destination—it’s an idea and a dream. Even if you cannot get there right now, you can take a journey in spirit.
