A call for more Caribbean artists to take part.

As one year finishes and another year begins in Nairobi, Kenya Africa the Beryll Foundation Trust will be presenting a 3-day music& arts festival called GreenFest from 31st Dec 2010 to 2nd Jan 2011.

The festival is an emerging annual new life festival that hopes encourage young adults and the creative industry at large to take on and address the most serious and potentially dangerous consequences to their health and well being caused by Climate Change through music, arts, culture and interactions. A spokesman for the festival said “We believe cultures cannot survive if environment on which they depend on is laid to waste or impoverished. We clearly understand our targets want a new life and better life style full of fun”. They went on to add “Artists have the power to drive and influence change. We believe music and entertainment industry has global reach and can unleash imagination and passion like few other industries. Music produces role models, dreams and questions which might pave the way into a Low Carbon Future and help our political leaders bring about the global transformation required.”

So far Jamaican Reggae artist LUTAN FYAH will lead the message to Save the Planet through music and with this in mind festival organizers are calling for more Caribbean artists including singers, magicians, comedians, artists, models, modern & cultural dance groups, vocalists, bands etc to take part. In particular they would like to see more talent from Jamaica at the event, so If you are interested in taking part event organizers have officially appointed Ra-Umi Alkebu-lan, Kemet Monomatapa of ALKEBU-LAN "SOUNDS FROM THE CONTINENT",P.O Box 5139,Liguanea P.O, Kingston 6 Jamaica, W.I. as its agent representing its business in Jamaica. Mr. Alkebu-lan will act on behalf of GreenFest Music & Arts Festival based in Africa. All applications must be submitted by November 15th, 2010 at the latest.
