Words of Our Mouth, Meditations of Our Heart : Pioneering Musicians of Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, and Dancehall Paperback / softback

Description

This is the first book devoted to the studio musicians who were central to Jamaica's popular-music explosion.

With colour portraits and interview excerpts, over 100 musical pioneers-such as Prince Buster, Robbie Shakespeare, Sly Dunbar, Lee "Scratch" Perry, and many of Bob Marley's early musical collaborators-provide new insights into the birth of Jamaican popular music in the recording studios of Kingston, Jamaica, in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

Includes a listening guide of selected songs. A wonderful read aloud for K-3rd grade, this uplifting story is recommended for nature and science centres, children's museums, and school and public libraries to support science and social studies sections.

Author lives in Massachusetts and Missouri.
