Jamaica celebrates reggae legend Peter Tosh with new museum
KINGSTON, Jamaica — Prime Minister Andrew Holness will be the guest speaker at the official opening Wednesday, October 19, 2017 of the Peter Tosh Museum at the Pulse Centre, Trafalgar Road, St Andrew.
The museum is opening its doors on the 72nd anniversary of Tosh’s birth, and five weeks after the 29th anniversary of his murder at the hands of robbers at his home in Barbican.
According to the chairman of Pulse, Kingsley Cooper, when the museum officially opens its doors, Jamaicans and visitors from around the world will be able to see a large collection of never-before-seen Tosh memorabilia.
“Visitors will also be able to relive aspects of the non-conformist, futuristic and abundantly creative Tosh experience, through sizzling audio and video recordings featuring the superstar, as well as iconic artefacts, including his M16 guitar and beloved unicycle that became one of his favourite means of transportation. Also available will be exclusive merchandise for sale to the public,” a release from Pulse said.
