Abstract:

"More than a listener's guide, this book reveals the rich historical development of a regional music that is now embraced worldwide. Packed with incisive essays, bios, reviews, ratings, photos, and more, this guide captures the allure of reggae and other evocative styles of the entire English-speaking Caribbean region past and present." "From Trinidad to the Bahamas, Guyana, Jamaica, the Virgin Islands, and beyond, you'll discover the myriad geographical, cultural, and artistic ingredients inside the Caribbean melting pot - where the infectious sounds of calypso, chutney, dancehall, pan, rock steady, soca, and more are still bubbling."

"Reggae & Caribbean Music explores in depth the enduring carnival traditions of each island, 100 influential performers and their recordings, devoted record producers who gave the music a voice outside the region, the early single releases, and more."--Cover.
