‘One Guyana’ concert showcases musical diversity

The Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport’s ‘One Guyana’ virtual concert officially kicked off Saturday night and has so far garnered more than 50,000 views on social media.

It was also broadcast live on the National Communications Network (NCN), HJTV, LT Rock, and E-Networks and aired on 94.1, 98.1, and 93.1 FM radio stations.

The hit concert included performances from Jumo Primo, Timeka Marshall, Saiku, Samuel Medas, Bunty Singh, Steven Ramphal, Vanilla, Vanita Willie, Poonam, Calvin Burnette, Brandon Harding, Professor, Alabama, and Whiz Phillips.

The organisers also acknowledged the tragic loss of Isaiah and Joel Henry and Haresh Singh and honoured their memory with a painting of the three displayed on stage.  

Meanwhile, Minister, Hon. Charles Ramson Jr. said the event was the first step in the Ministry’s effort to promote love and unity among Guyanese. The concert also presented an opportunity to display Guyana’s diverse music culture.

This is the beginning of where we are going. We can only do this together, but make no mistake that we must guard against anyone or any movement that wants to sow the seeds of discord and disunity that can destroy our national treasure, which is our culture,” the Minister said.

Minister Ramson reminded the nation that Guyana belongs to all Guyanese and that remains at the forefront of His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali’s leadership.
