Anyone else live there, or visit there? God I miss it sometimes.
I haven't been to Jamaica, but I wouldn't mind visiting.
Love the musical output. Saw many Jamaican acts back in the late '60's.
Loved Desmond Dekker. He ended up living in South London and died a few years ago.
Isn't Jamaica nowadays a very dangerous place? I know people who have visited and been under armed guard.
Would like to visit Golden Eye and Noel Coward's places, Firefly/Blue Harbour.
Went there years ago and down town Kingston was a tad exciting, all the police cars had 4 cops in them and 3 shotguns hanging out of the open windows (I assume the driver probably had a couple of handguns in his lap)
Isn't Brushy One String from da island?...I seldom know what he is saying but he has so much fun....reckon fun is had there.
Visited years ago. Really liked it. Would go back.
Only online image I have ... long ago and probably from a camera vs a phone ... morning coffee view. No beach view from that room, but still made the coffee taste great!
Ya, mon...I love Jamaica. I've been to Negril and Ocho Rios.
Hey, everyone, I'm from Jamaica. Very nice place to visit.
Living there is a very different. That's why the music can feel so real and bluesy, because of the feeling in the music.
Brushy one string is from Jamaica.
The country itself can be very dangerous and rocky at times. I don't recommend going to visit without some sort of concierge or guide that has a good reputation. What's lively is the live music scene which is very underground. A lot of live jams and places to play and sing music, but you have to be "in the know".
My personal favorite live music acts from Jamaica are Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Toots and the Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, black uhuru, Dennis brown, half pint, gregory isaacs, buju banton, Lee scratch perry, steel pulse, Barrington levy,
Cool! We lived in Mandeville. I liked it very much. Traveled everywhere, mostly on the west half of the country.
Haven't been yet, but I would love to go. And of course reggae is one of my favorite genres. One of my new favorite artists:
That Brushy tune is now an ear worm ......
Went there as a teen. Dudes kept trying to sell me weed. Then we got robbed and my white Okie family had to trek through the slums of Kingston to find our way back.
never been, I've consumed enough Red Stripe to have an honorary citizenship
Dennis Brown from Heartland Reggae movie featuring the Ragamuffin Man
Cool down your temper..
