Push A Yute Listening Party

Good day readers and fans of great literature. Welcome to Urban Vine Media and yes we are at the heart of all the cultural events and I.P. events across the island of Jamaica. We had the opportunity to be a part of a listening party on Thursday night. The Push A Yute outfit was back at it. It was a night where we had, producers, artists, sculptors, photographers, Disc Jocs, project managers and many more creatives in an intimate space. The night was about what they have been producing and curating for the past two years.

It was the opportunity to display their new acts and new venue that has been the hub of a lot of creativity over the past two years. Their acts Al’Qual, Simone Fruit Tree Dewar, had the floor for most of the night. Simone a spoken word poet and author had her new EP on rotation along with an intimate and soulful performance that delighted the crowd. Her sassy and savvy wordplay was well reciprocated by the ones who never had an opportunity to hear the beautiful poet. “Online Love” had the crowd in a frenzy asking for more. She solidified her place as one to look out for in the world of poetry.

Al’Qual is a clear star in the making. His stage presence his attire showed he is a young man who is on a mission His seems to have a calming presence on stage as he walked the crowd through his three track EP which seems to be one we would like to get. His performance was impactful and his words made it easy for the crowd to sing along.

AmlakRedSquare did a spoken word piece that had the audience thinking while asking for more. His pieces was a good reflection to say Rasta, Reggae and our culture is in good hands for the future.

The night was one of great convo, media heads, journalist and the fact that we felt it was more about the artisans than it was about anything else. Tandra Jhagroo, Dezigna, Paper Craft, all showed why the hub is filled and fueled with creativity. It was a good night and we here at Urban Vine Media appreciate your hospitality.
