Summary note:
For more than half a century, a small Caribbean island has written its name in letters of fire on the map of world music history. With ramifications as extensive as those of jazz or blues, Jamaican music has transformed its African legacies, resulting from the sufferings of slavery, over time and contacts with the European colonizers. Deejay, sound system, remix, dub: as many daring inventions, tinkered since the 1950s in the ghettos of Kingston, which are the sources of contemporary urban music. Sacred music or secular music? Rural or urban? Militant or light? Voices of rastafarian or rude boys of the ghetto? Analyzing the cultural, historical and political context of Jamaican music, the authors of this book unveil the mechanisms that led Jamaica to produce the most popular music in the world. -- Publisher.
