Vibe with J Perry at “Taste the Islands Experience”

The melody of Haitian singer J Perry’s infectious song Dekole (ole-ole-o) has been seared into the minds of fans since its 2011 debut in Haiti. Its remix became the promotional tune for the 2014 World Cup broadcasts, and now fans can hear this and other J Perry music in fitness studios around the world on Zumba soundtracks.

After a day filled with cooking and mixology demos from some of the Caribbean’s finest, he’ll bring his unique brand of catchy, high energy music to close out the night on the main stage Saturday night.

Guests will enjoy the music of DJ Fergie and Sir Rockwell throughout the day.

More About Julian Marley at TTIX 2019

Marley’s Juju Royal extra-virgin olive oil is made from freshly harvested and organically-grown olives, and comes in two herbal flavors, rosemary and basil. And, of course, both include the brand’s high quality CBD distillate, the all-natural chemical compound extracted from marijuana. Significant research suggests CBD can provide a myriad of health benefits without creating the classic ganja buzz.

Juju Royal CBD-infused oil can be used like any other olive oil. It makes the perfect final finish on salads, pastas and crusty artisan bread. In addition, part of the proceeds of all Juju Royal products goes to the Weed for Warriors project, a non-profit that provides holistic rehabilitation for war veterans.

Marley’s first solo album project in 10 years, (since 2009’s “Awake”), “As I Am” premiered No. 1 on the UK and USA Reggae iTunes charts. Produced by Ghetto Youths International, the 17 tracks also boast star-studded collabs, including Shaggy, Beenie Man and Spragga Benz.
