Jamaican Youth Empowerment through Culture Arts and Nationalism (JAYECAN) is not
hesitant in paying homage to those who are doing great things in the different art forms. One of
our awardees from last year’s staging of the Youth Empowerment Awards, are the members of
Pozitive Vybrationz band.
Founded by musical genius, builder of steel drums, tuner and music arranger Clive White in
2015; what started out to be a one-man form, quickly blossomed into a 9 piece band.
The unique style and interpretation of music, has captured the hearts and attention of all age
groups and has open doors of opportunities both locally and abroad. The Jamaican Prime
Minister and Opposition have also been thrilled by the music of Pozitive Vybrationz and they
have also had the pleasure to serenade and captivate a wide variety of tourists islandwide.
In 2016, Pozitive Vybrationz entered The World Championships of Performing Arts, held in Los
Angeles California. Bringing international attention to their unique concoction of Jamaican
melody, the band now had a point to prove and a mission to accomplish. After competing against
sixty (60) countries from around the world with nearly Five Thousand (5000) contestants,
Pozitive Vybrationz made their way to the top and was awarded Twenty (20) Gold Medals, Three
(3) Plaques and a Trophy. The Pozitive Vybrationz band proudly returned home as the 2016
Instrumental Grand Champions of the World.
Their creative skills and dynamic techniques of this group of young performers, draw influence
from the likes of the great Robert ‘Bob’ Marley, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder. Never
missing an opportunity to give credits to God, Pozitive Vybrationz aims to show their true love
for music and how it can be expressed positively through performance. They believe that
Jamaica can see affirmative change through positive music and endorse their belief in their
slogan: Pozitive Vybrationz ‘Healz The Nation’.
Pozitive Vybrationz Received the 2016 JAYECAN Youth Empowerment Award for Outstanding
Artistic Presentation in Music and Musicianship.
The JAYECAN Youth Empowerment Awards seek celebrate the role of young people as nation
