Barrington Levy “Teach The Youths” Live

Win Tickets To See Barrington Perform Tomorrow
ROCK_BARRINGTON (1)Actions speak louder than words, and when it comes to teaching the youths, Barrington Levy  is a man of action. His 80s dancehall classic on Witty’s digital lick of the “Mr Bassie” riddim expressed Barrington’s hearfelt desire to see music “teach the youths them how to live, teach the youths them how to survive.” At the same time Mr. Levy’s song was a rebuke of artists who choose to use the gift of music to spread slack irrelevant teachings: “No put it deh no put them no weh / No bend down just keep them to the ground,” he sang with righteous indignation. “Can’t you see the time we’re living in, the people are suffering?” This Thursday June 6th Barrington Levy will continue his mission to teach the youths by performing live to benefit the Rockhouse Foundation. The foundation transforms the places where Jamaica’s children learn and supports the people who teach them. 2013 marks the Rockhouse Foundation’s ten-year anniversary. To date, the Foundation has entirely transformed and modernized four schools – Negril All Age School, Negril Basic School, Little Bay All Age and the Bunch of Stars E.C.I. – along with a complete renovation and expansion of the Negril Community Library. All projects combined, the Rockhouse Foundation directly impacts the lives of thousands of young people and their families. You can win free tickets to the show (and why not use the money you save to make a donation?). Video And Contest Details After The Jump… Read more »

Win Tickets to See Femi Kuti Live in NYC

The Afrobeat Legend Will Rock Webster Hall this Saturday—Don’t You Want To Catch Him Live?
Femi Kuti was born in London and grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. He is the eldest son of Afrobeat pioneer and revolutionary icon Fela Anikulalpo Kuti. Femi inherited a gift for music and became a member of his father’s band, and later formed his own band, called Positive Force with Dele Sosimi, who formerly played keyboards with Fela. Like his late father, Femi Kuti plays an infectious style of music known as Afrobeat which fuses elements of jazz, funk, and traditional African music. Femi has been signed to major labels and nominated for Grammys, but like his father, he believes that “music is the weapon of the future.” In other words, he uses his music fearlessly as a means of speaking out on issues of social and political justice. He will be performing in New York this Saturday at Webster Hall, one of the city’s greatest music venues. Because we know this is a show that Boomshots readers will not want to miss, we’ve reserved a pair of tickets—and you’ve got a chance to win.  Video & Contest Details After The Jump…
