On Wednesday night, I found myself laughing, hugging, cheering, sipping on Brugal Rum cocktails, and jamming to some serious tunes by The Sattalites, Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene and Cookie Duster. Ah Sey One is part of the Sceneopolis TO event series, and was hosted by Cameron Bailey, who I’m told is ”reggae aficionado,” however most of you know him as the artistic director of the Toronto Film Festival (TIFF).
Sweet sweet reggae music!
It was truly an awesome evening, the Sattalites gave us a lesson on the basics of reggae music from ska to dancehall, and they even touched on how rhythms differ, dub technology and the context of every genre in between songs.
I don’t normally drink rum… BUT… I will gladly sip on some Brugral Rum!
There seemed to be an endless supply of delicious Jamaican inspired food and drinks provided by Harlem Restaurant, I mean mini-rotis, jerk chicken quesadillas, sweet potato spring rolls… yum! But what’s good food without good drink? We sipped on tasty Brugal Rum cocktails while eating, and rocking the night away, t’was wonderful!
Can you tell that I was having FUN…
