Subject: RE: ADD: jamaican folk music
Louise Bennett is one of the leading lights of Jamaican music.
She has a lovely song called "Evenin' Time" which someone could find and post.

Mento is the Jamaican folk jazz. Banjo is a principal instrument here.

Mention must be given to Bob Marley, an important influence.
