Shaggy Parrot and the Reggae Band, new Shaggy album in 2009!

Shaggy Parrot and the Reggae Band
Shaggy contributed to a beautiful book-and-CD set for children, which introduces them in a fun way to reggae music and educates them about pollution! Shaggy Parrot and the Reggae Band is a book-and-CD set for children from ages 0 to 8 years old. The story is about a waterfall in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, that is polluted by people. The waterfall feels sad about the pollution, so a team of sea animals try to cheer it up. Shaggy Parrot, whose voice is read by Shaggy, and friends make reggae music while they help clean up the waterfall.

The sales will benefit two of Shaggy’s charities, St Andrew’s Bustamante Hospital for Children in Jamaica and the Tatiana McIntosh Scholarship fund based in Florida. Read more about the book-and-cd set in the Jamaica Gleaner review article. Shaggy Parrot & the Reggae Band is set to be released in November this year; it will first be available in Jamaica, after which a release in the US will follow.
