The band is featuring special guest Perry Robinson, the Traveler. Sony Rollins wrote "Perry has a reputation for being a person who plays the music he feels in his heart, and it is not the standard types of music that are easily accessible. Among musicians he is known for having real musical integrity." (clarinet and whistles). Perry and Jerry play often together in New Jersey and Perry plays with Village Drums of Freedom in the U.S.Trinidad and Germany. Dancing will be Mama Luna. Mama Luna has danced with Village drums of Freedom in Trinidad and Germany. Other friends will also join in.

Gerry says: Music makes us One, each day celebrating
One Love, One Aim, One Destiny. Music-Dance-Poetry
is One Art of Love. Teach the children Art and Culture,
Respect Your Mother and Father, Jah is Love.
Blessings, One Love.
