Music is all about performance and the enjoyment it brings. CPR got started when a group of reggae lovers set out to produce a special event to mark a very special occasion, the 75th anniversary of a coronation. That was in 2005 and that journey has morphed into this organization anchored by the hallmark event Reggae Culture Salute.

Reggae Culture Salute. Reggae Culture Salute marks the anniversary of the coronation of Emperor Haile Selassie I and Empress Mennen of Ethiopia. Emperor Haile Selassie I is central to the Rastafari Movement which informs the roots reggae and the multimedia Reggae Culture Salute underscores the unique relationship between reggae Rasta Emperor Selassie and Jamaica. The family friendly event typically showcases veteran roots reggae artists and emerging artists as well as nyabinghi drumming, dancing, a video tribute, award presentations and delectable Caribbean cuisine.

International Women of Reggae. This performance presentation is devoted to honoring the contribution of women to reggae and showcases women from around the world. The artists hail primarily from the Caribbean, North America and Europe but may be from wherever reggae can be found. As with Reggae Culture Salute (RCS), veterans as well as newcomers are reflected in the mix and whereas anywhere in and elsewhere RCS is partial to roots reggae, International Women of Reggae is more diverse in the flavors of reggae that are presented.
