New York Caribbean Carnival Week kicked off Thursday with "Reggae Unda Di Stars."

The event was a funky reggae party with Cocoa Tea as the headliner and several other artists to begin the festivities.

There was a special appearance by Grammy-winning artist Stephen Marley, who paid tribute to his father, Bob Marley.

Marley commemorated his father's visit to the same stage at the Brooklyn Museum, where the late Marley debuted his album "Uprising."

Brass Fest will be held at the museum on Friday.
