Synopsis

We wrote Island Voices Reggae & New Jamaican Music for the tourist and visitor to Jamaica who uses a smartphone or digital reading device. It links to over 300 songs and 200 artists so the reader/listener can sample the song or buy immediately via the Internet. We promise you'll have more fun during your visit if you explore using our book as your guide.

The book features short biographies & explanations of songs from many other reggae & dancehall artists. Links to their Facebook, Myspace and other websites are provided. You’ll be able to follow your favorites and get current information about their tours and music releases.

We explain the language, metaphors and idioms of modern Jamaica in an easy-to-read fashion. It’s like a whole course about Jamaican music in your hand which you can explore as you like. Co-author, Fureus chose the songs with care according to his experience of the music. Love songs and reggae music are balanced with new Jamaican music about the culture and politics of the day. The reader/listener will learn about Jamaican rap and dancehall - the origin of the American dance craze "twerking" popularized recently.

For people that love Jamaica or who are visiting, it is a perfect way to be introduced to the culture and help you really connect with the”heart” of Jamaica - the people through their music. You are helping many artists when you listen and buy their music.

We are open to PRIVATE LABELING for your wedding, resort, conference or other event or business in Jamaica.  We can tailor the e-book to include your logo or other information for your specific audience. The e-book will help people deepen their experience of the island and provide memories for their  lifetime. Fuse your “brand” to their memories and they will be repeat guests and customers.
