Folk Music of Jamaica

Various Artists
Folk Music of Jamaica

This compilation provides a glimpse into the secular and religious musics of Jamaica. Work songs sung to occupy and energize manual laborers are placed side by side with "ring play" which consists of spontaneous song-games played in a circle in the moonlight, sometimes during wakes; Christian cult music of Revival Zion and Pocomania is juxtaposed with "Afro" magico-religious cult music kumina.
