Default Tale of Two Music Cities Kingston

While Kingston’s counterparts such as Bogota and Amsterdam have been similarly designated as Creative Cities of Music, and have capitalized on the designation, boosting their music tourism, four years on, Jamaica’s capital appears to be suffering from inertia.

This is the opinion of some industry experts.

Kingston was designated a Creative City of Music by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in December 2015. However, at present, musicians, performers and other players in Kingston’s music industry continue to struggle with ‘access to spaces and places’ for staging musical events, which is one of the five essential elements of Creative Cities of Music, cited by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), and which would boost its global appeal as a music tourism destination.

“Music needs a home; in fact, it needs many homes. From education to rehearsal to recording to performance, music cities require a variety of quality spaces and places to succeed. To meet this need, the first step is to take inventory so that gaps can be identified,” the IFPI researchers said in a recent global study, dubbed The Mastering of a Music City.

“For live performances, a full range of venues is essential to support artistes… everything from small basement venues to stadiums and all points in between,” it noted.
