The Jamaican Love Song Wedding Cocktail Hour

September 14, 2015 by Gregg Hollmann

dunns-river-fallsWarm up your Winter with this all-Jamaican wedding cocktail hour playlist compiled by Ambient’s Caribbean Music Specialist, Music Mixologist Teshna C., aka “DJ Jazz.” Jazzy was born and raised in Negril, Jamaica. While she formerly danced professionally in reggae dancehall competitions, Teshna’s true passion lies with conscious reggae music, also known as “roots” reggae. The playlist that follows contains what Jazzy terms as Jamaican wedding music or “romantic reggae,” incorporating talented artists like Barrington Levy, Beres Hammond, Gregory Isaacs, Marcia Griffiths, Carlene Davis and many more.

For a signature cocktail, DJ Jazz selected “The Hummingbird” which is a popular local cocktail in Jamaica featuring fresh fruit and rum. Jazzy’s favorite rum for mixing is Wray and Nephew Overproof Rum. To learn how to mix a Hummingbird and other popular Jamaican cocktails, click here.
