SCOOP: TALLAWAH dishes culture/entertainment news from Kingston to Florida

Old time sinting come back again! As part of this year's Independence celebrations, the Heart of Ska Festival, is set to enter the scene as the newest addition to the festivities. "We have lost widespread engagement with the form here in Jamaica. The festival's name speaks to the genesis of the genre, rooted not just in the musical form but in fashion, movement and discourse," explains Dahlia Harris, Principal Director of Culture in the youth and culture ministry. "Ska is a way of life and we felt it was important to begin the process of re-establishment," she adds. The Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre will play host to the event on August 12.

> SportsMax has joined forces with the producers of Miss Jamaica World to broadcast the 2014 pageant live to Jamaicans in the Diaspora this summer.

> Jamaicans and other Caribbean nationals in and around Florida's Pembroke Pines area are expected to turn up in their numbers for this year's staging of the Anancy Festival at the South Regional Broward College Library on Saturday, June 28. The family-friendly event is making its return with short-film screenings, storytelling sessions, and performances galore.

> Still in that neck of the woods, the Wolmer's Alumni Association's South Florida Chapter will host its annual banquet on Saturday, July 19 at the Renaissance Hotel Plantation, with Dr. Barbara Gloudon being flown in as guest speaker. Wolmer's is all of 285 years old this year.

> WHAT'S HOT RIGHT NOW: Brand new records from Raging Fyah (Destiny) and Prodi (Voice of the People); Live World Cup action at the SportsMax Zone; Kingston On The Edge's diverse schedule of events 
WHAT'S NOT: Too little time to soak it all in
