Once you go, you know!

Most of us who’ve gone to Jamaica over the years have certainly gotten to know its beaches, resorts, reggae, rum, and fun – de irie vibes! I know I have during my many trips to Kingston, MoBay, Ocho Rios, and Negril.

Still, I wouldn’t say that I KNOW the place… not the real Jamaica.

Not this…

The video for Get Free, another Major Lazer favorite of mine, captures many aspects of the wildly dynamic local milieu in a way that excites me about returning to Jamaica way more than any promotional commercial.

Gritty, sensual nightlife, slammin’ bones outside a rum shop, ruggedly ferocious amateur boxing, cooling off under a waterfall up in de bush – THIS is the Jamaica I long to know!

If you know this side of Jamaica and have some suggestions on how best we might experience it, get in touch.
