We are pleased to announce that Flag Up Scotland Jamaica has been awarded a £10,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund to enable Jamaican artists to participate in the forthcoming Glasgow MELA multicultural festival at Kelvingrove Park on Sunday June 15th. It will also help to fund planning for a ScotJam event which will take place in August 2016.
The Jamaican artists who will be coming are Yasus Afari and Claudius ‘Supa’ England. Yasus Afari is well known as a dub poet, reggae artist and ambassador for Rastafarianism. A fine example of his work is ‘My Mother who Fathered me’

Claudius England’s music is a fusion of reggae, dancehall and R&B with a hip hop flavour. His music can be heard at https://soundcloud.com/claudiusengland and also on his website http://claudiusengland.webs.com
Yasus and Claudius will be available for other gigs and for schools workshops before and after the festival and if you would like to find out more please contact Graham Campbell – firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07855 303604.
