Sir Tropical Downbeat And Vintage Jamaican Sounds

For lovers of ska, reggae and all music Jamaican, this has to be the gig of the year. Sir Tropical Downbeat brings to you the beautiful awesome sounds of yester years. The same Jamaica that gave the world Bob Marley is the same Jamaica that gave us a great evolution of rhythms that have changed the musical landscape.

These revolutionary musical rhythms have given all of us a choice of musical styles and has influenced everyone from Europe to Africa, and the Americas to the Pacific Islands. Turn the radio on anytime and you can be sure there will be a rhythmic song that has the flavour of Jamaica – yah man!

This is a sample of the story of Jamaican music…enjoy.
