SOUND OF SUMMER: REGGAELast Monday we Celebrated Brooklyn (and Summer) in Prospect Park with a concert performed by Jimmy Cliff and the Jimmy Cliff Band.
After just posting that Reggae is the sound of summer, it was an ideal opportunity to put the style to the sound.
It was great amusement being surrounded by fun loving, happy rastas and happy people in general.
Reggae style:Vivid Colors - Rasta colors are Green, Red and Gold which were prevalent but any bold, vivid colors will do. Think "happy"
Lot's of Hair - Everyone knows Bob Marley's dread locks so this is no surprise. Tucked into a big knitted top hot keeps it tame and adds a chance for color. When dread locks are not possible, long hair flowing or braided keeps the same vibe.
Smiles - Reggae's message is positive and loving. So the style is not complete with out smiles.
