We are delighted to announce the latest addition to our Songlines Music Travel trips – Jamaica. The tour, Caribbean Vibrations, takes place between January 2-13 2013 and offers a chance to experience Jamaica’s extraordinary music on the ground, or on ‘the rock’ as many people refer to it.
Jamaica, like the neighbouring island of Cuba, is a musical powerhouse out of all proportion to its size and population of less than 3 million people. There’s more to Jamaica than just reggae, although there’s a visit to the Bob Marley museum and Tuff Gong studios, but also some of the lesser-known sides of the island’s music like the kumina drumming and the annual Maroon Festival in Accompong and the gorgeous sound of old-time mento in Port Antonio. All this, plus time to enjoy the extraordinary landscape, beautiful beaches and tasty food of this vibrant island.
