John Crow Say..: Jamaican Music of Faith, Work and Play

Rounds or cannons or quadrilles, European church harmony or familiar hymn melodies—these are testaments to the British contribution to Jamaican culture. African call-and-response patterns, a particular and signifying humor, and Anansi (trickster) stories speak to the African input. But listening will tell you that the cultural voice is truly unique to Jamaica.
