Grange, who was making her contribution to the Sectoral Debate this afternoon, announced that in March Jamaica submitted a nomination dossier to inscribe Reggae on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural organization’s (UNESCO) Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage for Humanity.

She said only last week, UNESCO confirmed that it had received Jamaica’s nomination file dubbed: ‘Reggae Music of Jamaica’.

According to the minister, UNESCO has indicated that Jamaica’s Reggae music could be inscribed in 2018.

“This international protection instrument will ensure that the origins of Reggae and its derivatives are appropriately documented and safeguarded for present and future generations,” Grange said.
