NEWS & NOTES: The Abyssinians to tour Australia + Sean Paul wins at MOBO Awards + Kick off Xmas at Jamaica Epicurean Escape

FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD: Scheduled for December 1-2 at Richmond Estate in St. Ann, the Jamaica Epicurean Escape (JEE) is the perfect way for family and friends to kick off the Christmas season. According to organizers, this food-and-foodie extravaganza promises to provide patrons of all ages with a wide range of delectable dishes, exciting entertainment and the warmth and camaraderie of the JEE extended family. “The food will obviously be the centre of the festival, as it is with any family celebration,” notes Lorraine Fung, food consultant to the JEE. “We have organized the festival to represent a variety of styles of cooking to satisfy every palate. The venue will be transformed to represent a village with different zones focusing on different types of cuisine.” 

AWARD WORTHY: Dancehall-pop megastar Sean Paul is the 2012 winner of the MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act. The 17th annual awards took place last Saturday evening in Liverpool, England, but Sean was unavoidably absent, as he is presently on tour in India.

While Down Under, the band will participate in the Australian Worldwide Music Expo (Nov 15-18), which is bringing together “the finest roots music and musicians from around the world” for four days of showcase concerts, film programme, and conference sessions in Melbourne.
