The Dennis Brown Celebration on Sunday, January 30, again proved that Orange Street and its outskirts (downtown Kingston) organically generates a uniquely Jamaican 'artical' vibe which, at its dawn, had a profound impact on our pioneering artistes and entrepreneurs, stimulated and informed the creation of what has become our great musical legacy and, given the right conditions, still permeates any cultural event or project implemented in the area. During the load-in, (other-wised called set-up) period, the residents came out in droves to contribute in skills, time, effort and ideas to make it work, and did the artistes deliver to the 6,000-strong audience which eventually gathered to celebrate the life and works of Dennis Emmanuel Brown. To close the show, Beres Hammond and Freddy McGregor on stage together, totally captivated the assembled throng, doing song for song, and each other's too. Before that, and to the amply expressed appreciation of the patrons, Dillinger, Trinity, Tinga Stewart, George Nooks, Ken Boothe, The Mighty Diamonds, Skully, Jimmy Riley and Horace Andy all gave us performances, specially dedicated to Dennis. The electrifying performances of the inimitable Leroy Smart and Bob Andy, the

prolific songwriter/singer (foundation member of the Paragons), received the loudest, most sustained applause from the audience. These were all friends of Dennis, and along with him, the above artistes have taken our music 'from di root, to di world'. They have each played a big part in keeping 'The Fire Burning' throughout the decades.
