Bluefields School of Reggae
It is undeniable that Bluefields, Nicaragua has strong cultural traditions. However, due to a turbulent history and a lack of resources, these traditions are being lost. The Bluefields School of Reggae pairs local, veteran songsters with young, talented Bluefields artists in a studio setting. Older musicians are employed as instructors, while younger musicians receive music classes free of charge. This program is designed to bridge the gap between generations, and to nurture the Bluefields traditional Maypole style while paving the way for a new Bluefields sound.
