 News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Nov. 2, 2018: The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), is currently mulling over whether to include reggae music on its Intangible Cultural Heritage Representative List.

UNESCO officials say they will release its decision later this month.

Jamaica’s Culture Minister, Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, recently announced that UNESCO technical experts are in the process of examining Jamaica’s reggae submission. Grange said her Ministry has been mandated to establish an inventory of intangible heritage unique to Jamaica, which is also one of the criteria required by UNESCO.
