REGGAE FEAST ON THE HILL. Food, fun and fas Entertainment with lots of reggae were found at Farley Hill National Park, St Peter. And the 14 000 people who flocked to the second staging of the annual Reggae On The Hill show took full advantage of everything. Reggae lovers rocked, swayed, danced and vibed to the clean, conscious, positive reggae lyrics served up by local acts, including KDB Band, Biggie Irie, Third Stone and ZR recording artistes who launched an album. They did the same to the five international acts – Third World, Morgan Heritage, Anthony B, Luciano and Buju Banton. Here, a section of the crowd having a good time yesterday.

Keys Unlock Hearts - Saturday 15, January-2005


Sloe-eyed beauty Alicia Keys was this photographer’s dream model as she posed patiently during an hour-long photo shoot yesterday morning on the picturesque Payne’s Bay Beach on the West Coast.

SHE’S COMING! SHE’S COMING!
That was the word on Payne’s Bay beach yesterday morning when American rhythm and blues superstar Alicia Keys appeared for a photo-shoot.

Preceded by her towering six-foot, nine-inch bodyguard, “Carter”, and with her mum Terri by her side, the petite Barbados Jazz Festival headliner strolled across the sands and plopped into a hammock, one of the props.
