Chronixx to perform in South

Reggae superstar, Chronixx, will perform at the One Heart Caribbean Festival at Skinner Park.

Jamaica-born singer and songwriter Chronixx’s Chronology Tour will be heading to TT on November 24 for the One Heart Caribbean Festival.

The award-winning musician, whose real name is Jamar Rolando McNaughton, made the surprise announcement on his social media platforms and official website.

The Trinidad tour stop is one of only three regional stops the artiste will be making this year, as part of his Caribbean “homecoming” on the heels of his widely successful US tour. Skinner Park, San Fernando is the venue for the concert.

Following the release of his critically-acclaimed album, Chronology, Chronixx’s remarkable ascension in the international music industry has amassed supporters from all corners of the globe –all of whom have followed his call to “prepare their hearts and minds for the revolution,” said a media release.

The One Heart Caribbean concept is a mission rooted in unity, love and social awareness in TT and the region – a cause that is dear to Chronixx’s heart, the release said.

“My first concert in Trinidad was one of the moments on my musical journey where I realised how much people from around the world really appreciate our music. Trinidad was the first time where my work felt iconic to me,” says the 24-year-old reggae superstar. “Music is about love and enjoyment and bringing people together. This concert is about upliftment, forwardness, meditation and great vibes that humanity needs.”

One Heart Caribbean is presented by 432 Live, an event production company consisting of highly-skilled professionals with more than 15 years’ experience in the regional and international entertainment industry, the release said. The company’s collective wealth of experience has a proven track record, having produced concerts for some of the top names in the music industry such as Beres Hammond, Buju Banton and Morgan Heritage.

This year, the event organisers will partner with the San Fernando City under the patronage of Mayor Alderman Junia Regrello. The city will culminate its anniversary celebrations with City Week at the park (renamed Legacy Park for this event).

With this year’s theme One Heart Caribbean – Live for Love, patrons can look forward to a vibrant, quality music experience. This year’s festival will be hosted by Walshy Fire of the internationally-acclaimed music trio Major Lazer, alongside popular media personality Chinee.

Prophet Benjamin

In addition to Chronixx and Zincfence Redemption Live, there will also be performances from Freetown Collective, Marlon Asher, Prophet Benjamin and Walshy Fire.

Tickets are available online at www.oneheartcaribbean.com and authorised outlets. Fans can look out for regular updates on the One Heart Caribbean Facebook Page, as well as their Instagram account, @oneheartcaribbean.
