The Alpha Institute is pleased to announce a partnership with Lonely Whale, a global leader in ocean protection, and Ghetto Youths Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Stephen, Damian, and Julian Marley to provide aid and resources, opportunity and hope to communities in need across the globe. These three mission-driven institutions have partnered to create a ground-breaking new programme in Jamaica in which Ghetto Youths Foundation will sponsor a music scholarship and Lonely Whale student internship at Alpha.

The #ABSRSHORTLIST is a short list of Alpha music put together by our friends at Alpha Boys School Radio, a 24/7 streaming radio station featuring music by Alpha past students. Each of the four songs below has a player and links to more information. The Jamaican Independence Short List is a tribute to August 6, 1962, the day Jamaica made official its independence from Britain. Ska music was the sound track to independence and the short list starts there before moving to rocksteady, reggae and funk.
