This year “Bob Marley Day” includes the reggae band One Drop Band that will cover Bob Marley as well as other classic songs, while reggae singers from China, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean will also bring powerful performances. Furthermore, we invited the famous Jamaican reggae artist “BUSHMAN” as a special guest coming straight from Jamaica to Beijing. He will deliver the most exciting performance for that special evening.
We also introduce an after party with four of the best DJs taking turns to bring Reggae / Dancehall / Afro Beat and Soca vibes. Your favorite MC Freddie, former Radio and TV host, and COO of Segrace Entertainment will be your host all night long. The Caribbean food stalls will be set up as well. You can taste authentic Caribbean food. The embassy will also be setting up a booth to promote Jamaican culture.

Born Dwight Duncan in Prospect Beach St Thomas Jamaica in 1973, he was raised as a Rastafarian.
As a teenager he worked as a selector under the name Junior Melody (sometimes Junior Buckley) for the Black Star Line sound-system
With talks of an album Steely wished to change the name Junior Melody to Bushman. Initially Duncan was unhappy with this name, he thought it somehow derogatory to him coming from the country, until he researched the name only to discover that ‘Bushman’ was an African name for ‘Medicine Man’.
Nyah Man Chant, his debut album was described “as good an example of modern cultural singing as you could hope to find.”
Bushman then moved on to work with King Jammy, who produced his next two albums.
Despite the ever-increasing recognition of his talent Bushman remains a humble, down to earth figure, who still lives in St. Thomas with his wife and children, follows a strict ital diet, and bathes in the hot water springs of St. Thomas.
When asked who was his mentor’s in the reggae music industry he said Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh and Luciano.
More recently Bushman was featured on Playing For Change, Playing For Change is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music. The idea for this project came from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.
No matter who you are or where you come from, we are all united through music.
