Reggae and Dancehall music and culture have travelled far beyond the shores of the tiny island of Jamaica to find their respective places as new genres of music and lifestyle. In Reggae from Yaad, Donna Hope pulls together a remarkable cast of contributors offering contemporary interpretations of the history, culture, significance and social dynamics of Jamaican Popular Music from varying geographical and disciplinary locations. From Alan 'Skill' Cole's lively and frank account of the Bob Marley he knew and David Katz's conversation with veteran music producers Bunny 'Striker' Lee, King Jammy and Bobby Digital; to Heather Augustyn and Shara Rambarran who both explore the role of music in the relationship between Britain and Jamaica in the post-independence 1960s, the contributors bring a new dimension to the discussion on the impact of Jamaican music. Drawn from a selection of presentations at the 2013 International Reggae Conference in Kingston, Jamaica, Reggae from Yaad continues the ever-evolving discourse on the meaning behind the music and the cultural and social developments that inform Jamaican Popular Music. Contributors: Heather Augustyn - Winston C. Campbell - Alan 'Skill' Cole - Brent Hagerman - Patrick Helber - Donna P. Hope - David Katz - Anna Kasafi Perkins - Shara Rambarran - Jose Luis Fanjul Rivero - Livingston A. White
