UK five CD set. Since celebrating it's independence from British rule on August 6th 1962, Jamaica has grown into a proud nation with a strong identity of it's own. Nowhere has this been more apparent than in it's music, from the joyous up tempo rhythms of Ska through to the sounds of contemporary Dancehall. This set highlights the leading performers, producers and studios that over the past half-century have shaped Jamaica's national sound, with the 100-plus recordings showcasing a diverse range of musical styles and topics that range from strident proclamations of freedom, hope, pride to songs of love and everyday life on the island.
