Alpha Boys Home Honoured by Jamaica Reggae Industry Association

Nice story via The Jamaica Observer on The Alpha Boys Home:

"The Alpha Boys Home was on Monday honoured by the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association, (JARIA), as part of this year's Reggae month celebrations being held under the theme, To Di Root.

Present to witness the occasion were representatives of the Ministry of Culture, the opposition spokesperson on culture, Lisa Hannah and other players in the Reggae music industry."

"We have chosen to honour Alpha because here is where produced the musicians that gave us our first musical genre ska," Campbell said.

"The Alpha Boys Home is arguably the institution that has made the greatest contribution to Jamaica's popular music and has helped shape this invaluable and timeless treasure into what many take for granted today."
