With the rise of digital platforms like Reggaenorthca.com and Reggaenorthradio.com, Reggae North has become a beacon for promoting and amplifying the voices of Canadian reggae and dancehall artists. Now, with the launch of the Reggae North Music Awards, this commitment to showcasing talent reaches new heights.
Mark ‘Tony Anthony’ Bennett, president of Reggae North, says the awards aim to address the gap in recognition and platforms for Canadian reggae and dancehall artists. Reggae North vision is clear: to provide a stage where emerging and established artists alike can shine, transcending barriers and reaching audiences both locally and internationally.
The significance of the Reggae North Music Awards extends beyond mere celebration; it’s a platform for education and appreciation. By honoring the contributions of Canadian artists to the global reggae and dancehall landscape, the awards spotlight the cultural impact of these genres. Moreover, they serve as a call to action, urging audiences to recognize and support homegrown talent.
The event promises an evening of elegance and celebration, with up to 20 awards set to be presented to artists, producers, sound systems, and selectors. Live performances by Canadian reggae and dancehall artists will captivate the audience, while the presence of an international reggae star adds an extra layer of excitement to the festivities.
One of the highlights of the evening will be the presentation of the elite Icon Award, honoring a living legend of Canadian reggae or dancehall. This prestigious accolade recognizes the lifetime achievements and enduring influence of an individual whose contributions have helped to shape the genre for decades in Canada.
As the countdown to the Reggae North Music Awards begins, anticipation is building within the Canadian music community. Through their online platforms Reggaenorthca.com, Reggaenorthradio.com, and social media channels like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, fans can stay updated on the latest news and announcements surrounding the event.
