“Our music continues to be an important reason why travelers visit our island and we welcome the partnership support of Ziggy Marley to give consumers a taste of what they are currently missing,” said Donovan White, Jamaica’s director of tourism. “We’ve partnered with Ziggy on similar initiatives; however, this was a special effort which saw him creating this exclusive acoustic concert series for the benefit of our followers and potential visitors.”
