Jamaica, Jamaica

This is not a post on Kymani Marley’s 2006 summer smash, ‘Jamrock,’ nor does it have anything to do with the tiny Carribean island or its popular cultural export, reggae. I would simply like to pay tribute to one of my favorite summertime drinks, the refreshing Mexican chilled hibiscus tea, Jamaica (prounced ‘ha-MY-kuh). K&L’s resident Michoacaner, Jorge Valencia, makes a terrific Jamaica and has been sure to keep our Fridge stocked for the past few weeks. Nothing like fresh, tangy hibiscus tea for a mid-afternoon pick me up. Thanks, Jorge.

I believe the song "Welcome to Jamrock" was written by Damien "Jr. Gong" Marley. Kymani Marley is the son of table tennis champion Anita Belnavis. He has achieved much success as a musician with a cover of Eddy Grant's "Electric Avenue", in collaboration with The Fugees' Pras. He currently stars in BET J show Living the Life of Marley. Which I will now be calling my Comcast representative to immediately subscribe to.

You are correct, sir. I ran this post without proofing it, and the editorial staff at OWOS apparently dropped the ball here as well (heads will roll, believe that). Thanks for the additional info on Mr. Kymani Marley.
