Pupa Curly is a veteran Belizean Reggae Empressario, Singer, Producer and teacher. You may remember him as the organizer of the Caribbean Seabreeze Festivals held mostly in Long Beach that went on for years. We got a chance to catch up and talk about his return to the Reggae Arena after focusing on family and a teaching career.
Now he has 4 brand new songs out “Can’t Breathe”,”Lives R Not Games”, and “Mama” featuring Aziatic and Supa plus “Money” which is the current track distributed by Tuff Gong International.
He got started right away when he arrived in the late 1980’s spreading the message in Los Angeles. We talked about his history or writing music to dub music, working on sound systems as a youth and a lot more.
The veteran Reggae music artiste Pupa Curly has released a timely single “Can’t Breathe”. The single is the third release from the upcoming album Lives R Not Games. Released on Tuff Kruffy Entertainment label.
