MONTEGO BAY, St James —

Dancehall artiste Beenie Man is to perform at the Jamaica Festival of Colours, scheduled for the Aqueduct in Rose Hall, St James, on Sunday, December 16.

Jamaica Festival of Colours is a colour-powder throw party with a fusion of electronic dance music, soca, and dance music suitable for the entire family.

“This is where people come together for a fun-filled event. Food and liquor are inclusive,” Luton Lewin, promoter of the event told the Jamaica Observer West.

“For the colour-throw it is a time when people come in unity, love, happiness...just enjoyment.”

He explained that each colour has its own meaning, red is purity and love; green is vitality and new beginnings; blue is the colour of Krishna; and yellow is the colour of turmeric.

“The colours are simply a representation of that (Holi) story and have become an expression of love,” Lewin said.

With roots in ancient India, the Festival of Colours (Holi) announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter.

The vibrant tradition has spread to North America and New York City.

Music at the event, which is scheduled to run from 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm, will be provided by Kurt Riley, Jazzy T, ZJ Liquid, DJ Tippy and Stone Love.

Admission, which includes food and selected liquors, is $4,500 for students with ID; $5,500 pre-sold and $6,500 at the gate.
