Jamaica music and dance Reggae music

Reggae music is said to be uniquely and original Jamaican and was born in the 1960s right after the short lived ska and rock steady which are also Jamaica’s more recent traditional music and dance.
Reggae is said to have its birth in Western Kingston by the late super star Bob Marley who put reggae music and Jamaica on the world stage.

Some what slower than the rock steady it has a characteristic heavy repeated bass. One of its most prominent features is the off beat unlike any other musical form. The lyrics gave messages from the poor and centered around political, economical, social and religious oppression all intended for the powers that be to awake their consciousness.

Mento is a traditional dance in Jamaica that is still played in some North coast hotels in Jamaica. It is said to come about somewhere in the time of the early slavery and Plantocracy system and remained dominant up to the 1950s.It came out of a mixture of British and African music.

Mento is a type of music that the slaves used to jeer their Owners.It also address their struggles , politics ,social ,environment , sexuality and their hopes. Songs that were too sexually explicit were banned.

Mento music was found in every parish in Jamaica and was recognized just as how the calypso is recognized in Trinidad.The instruments that accompany mento dancing are usually the rumba box, fiddle, maracas, banjo,flute,guitar and drums.

Jamaica music and dance Kumina

Kumina is one of Jamaica traditional religious dances said to have its origin in the Congo.
It is believe to come with the slaves from Africa in the 1800s and has three basic characteristics singing,drumming, and dancing.

The drums are seen as the most important instrument since they are used to control the spirits. The practitioners believe in the existence of three spirits, the powerful God, or the sky and air spirit, the earth spirit, and the ancestral spirit.

When they dance the dancers can reach such a state that they become inhabited by one of the spirit who help to solve problems they may encounter. The sky air spirit is the most powerful and one is said to have that spirit during a kumina session if he seems to be leaping uncontrollable . He has to be guided by the other dancers to prevent him from getting hurt. If one dances very near to the ground he is said to be possesed with the ground spirit .

However kumina dance is really to ask the ancestral spirit to abide. To give health , prosperity and protection. Kumina is danced to celebrate achievements as births,and weddings. It is also danced at wakes for the dead to give speed and good passage to the other world.

JAMAICA TREES

DUPPY FLY TRAP
<

This is a climbing vine that bears the largest flower to be found in Jamaica. The flower is a spotted yellow-brown and purple colour, and has a habit of trapping carrion flies. Many persons believe that the Duppy Fly Trap feeds on insects but this is not true. The flower just traps insects inside for a while until they are totally covered by pollen and then it lets them go



.


 Jamaica trees CALABASH
This tree is small and spreading. The calabash fruit is large and is not only found on the branches of the tree but also on the trunk. It is known by several names in Jamaica – gourdi, goadyi, goadi and packy. Packy is the most popular name.
Large calabashes are used as containers to carry or store food and drink, while small ones are made into musical instruments by filling them with pebbles. Green calabashes are often decorated and made into attractive craft items.
The tree is native to the West Indies and Central and South America.


Jamaica trees PIMENTO
The pimento tree is Jamaica’s only native spice tree. It grows to an average height of 5 metres. Its bark is silver grey in colour and tends to peel easily from the trunk. There are male and female trees. Both produce blossoms, but the female tree also produces small berries that are green when harvested but turn black upon drying. These berries are called allspice. This is because the flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pepper are said to be combined in the berries.
<

Although pimento is found elsewhere in the Caribbean region, Jamaican pimento is thought to be the best and is highly desired on the world market. The spice is used in meat processing and to make confectionery and medicines.
Pimento berries that ripen on the tree turn dark purple. By soaking the berries in rum, a beverage called pimento dram or pimento liqueur is made. This is a popular Christmas drink.
Both the berries and the leaves are used to make perfume. For “jerking” meat, pork, chicken and fish, done over a wood flame, pimento wood is preferred.

Jamaica trees FERNS
Over 500 species of fern are grown naturally in Jamaica all over the island .They vary in size, from tree ferns that are more than 9 meters tall and wispy ferns as thin as tissue paper. Their appearance is also quite different ,with walking ferns that send out new plants wherever the fern tips bend over and touch the ground and the shoestring fern that looks just like the object that it was names after.
Apart from land ferns there are also water ferns. Water ferns include the water clover that looks like a floating four leaf clover.. Fern gully is a place to take a visit on the island because it has an abundance of fern.. Fern gully is in the parish of St Ann. .On your trip to Kingston driving through Ocho Rios, it is about 5 kilometres long and is darken even on the brightest of days because the ferns partially block out the sunlight.

Soy Criada Jamaican author

Jamaican Author

There are numerous Jamaican authors. individuals who have written many books, some living a broad while many still reside in Jamaica all making up the prestigious group of Caribbean writers.At the western part of the Island of Jamaica in the district of Sandy Bay lives the author,poet and inspirational writer Juliet Christie Murray who also goes by the pen name Soy Criada.
<
Soy Criada books including a number of your favourite books can all now be loaded and read with a simple pocket size wireless device called a Kindle electronic reader which you take anywhere.
Kindle Reader
  Born to Panamanian mother and a Jamaican father the blend has produce an author with an intriguing mind and an interesting personality,quite a powerful yet unassuming lady.

She grew up for the first 5 years with her mother’s mother in the small rural district called Roslyn, a district now dead. It has lost its glory and fame of years gone by as the liveliest district in Hanover before the 1950’s.

Fame gained from the many young men who once visited from adjoining districts especially on Saturdays and Sundays because it is said that the district had the prettiest girls found no where else in Hanover. For this reason many cricket matches were hosted in Roslyn up to the early 50’s.

<
Soy Criada was christened Juliet Christie but later added the name Murray When she married in her late twenties and moved to Sandy Bay.

She left Roslyn in 1956. At age five her grandmother who was ill and felt unable to take care of her brought her to a cross road and gave her the choice to choose any she wished.

One would have taken her to the town of Lucea to live with her Father’s mother ,the other to Johnson Town to her mother’s uncle. She said she chose Johnson town; because the house was huge, but her other grand mother lived in one room in a tenement yard. The house where she live before had five rooms and a big very yard.

<3>The Jamaican author says making that choice was easy but later she realized that she had walked into a dreadful situation when she lived with this couple and their two grand daughters. She had a near almost Cinderella experience with the exception of the Prince charming to the rescue.

Her prince charming did materialize at age 19 with the missing” live happy ever after ending". By then she was a single mother with all the responsibilities of a single parent.She was determined that her child should not suffer as she did ;never knowing her father and not knowing her mother until age 28.


Soycriada a born Jamaican

 She said she is still proud she had made that choice that day and believed it to have been the right one. She learned a number of skills including cooking baking and sewing, as she had to sew her own clothes at an early age of 14 and took over the chores of cooking and house management very early. She said that these, laid the foundation of her becoming a Home Economics teacher in later years.

You will be so inspired that you will not hesitate to get the next
Journey to Enlightenment As a young woman she had good manners respect to her elders and a strong love for God . These opened many opportunities when as a single mother things got rough and she needed help. She worked as a clerk in stores and got holiday jobs in a few government agencies all because of these.

One of the most rewarding jobs for this black jamaican author was when she worked for one year as an apprentice in a photo shop where she took and cleaned pictures. Pretty soon she became so good at it that one day the boss commented “ Gal you a get betta than me.”

With the determination to make something worthwhile of her life she left that job when her evening classes paid off. She took up her first teaching appointment 1970 at Lucea Primary. She continued to upgrade herself by working and studying. She has worked herself up to the position of Vice principal in a prominent Jamaican school and is the proud recipient of certificates, diplomas, degree and awards both in education and poetry.
The latter she ventured in 2002 In January 2008 she acted as Acting Principal of The Sandy Bay Primary and Junior High while the principal was on Vacation leave.

The Jamaican author now gives back to Jamaica and Jamaicans in the form of two of the greatest inspirational Jamaican books ever written,which can be added to Jamaica's literature collection.

To Peace

Quietly nestling in a tree
Branches hurling in the breeze
Raging river tossing below
A little bird sits at peace
And yet the big wide world blows

True peace comes from deep within
And not by world leaders defined
Now war rages on every side
As prophesied in Mathew’s lines
As natural signs of the end time.

Light now all a candle of peace
Born within the heart of every man
If I be at peace with myself
And he is at peace with his self
There can certainly be no war

How many houses can I live in
. How many cows can I consume
How much land can I be buried on
How much oil do I need to light
An eternal flame to peace and love.

ARE THEY REFFERING TO A JAMAICAN

Saw this on face book .Thought I would republish it here.Are they referring to us Jamaicans?
Help prove them wrong! Read and pass on.

Please Note:

For those of you who heard it, this is the article Dee Lee was reading this morning on a New York radio station. For those of you who didn't hear it, this is very deep. This is a heavy piece and a Caucasian wrote it.

Dee Lee

THEY ARE STILL OUR SLAVES
We can continue to reap profits from the Blacks without the effort of physical slavery. Look at the current methods of containment that they use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.

Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once said, 'The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in a book.' We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the opportunity to read any book on any subject through the efforts of their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are numerous books readily available at Borders, Barnes &Noble, and Amazon.com , not to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid blueprints to reach economic equality (which should have been their fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all..

GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their disposal. Last year they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas, out of their 450 billion dollars in total yearly income (2.22%).

Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture we care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it. Being primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed. They continually want more, with little thought for saving or investing.

They would rather buy some new sneaker than invest in starting a business. Some even neglect their children to have the latest Tommy or FUBU, And they still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house gives them 'Status' or that they have achieved their Dream.

They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty because their greed holds them back from collectively making better communities.

With the help of BET, and the rest of their black media that often broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue to see huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike. (Tommy Hilfiger has even jeered them, saying he doesn't want their money, and look at how the fools spend more with him than ever before!). They'll continue to show off to each other while we build solid communities with the profits from our businesses that we market to them.
<

SELFISHNESS , ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the major ways we can continue to contain them. One of their own, Dubois said that there was an innate division in their culture. A 'Talented Tenth' he called it. He was correct in his deduction that there are segments of their culture that has achieved some 'form' of success.

However, that segment missed the fullness of his work. They didn't read that the 'Talented Tenth' was then responsible to aid The Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life.. Instead, that segment has created another class, a Buppie class that looks down on their people or aids them in a condescending manner. They will never achieve what we have.. Their selfishness does not allow them to be able to work together on any project or endeavor of substance. When they do get together, their selfishness lets their egos get in the way of their goal Their so-called help organizations seem to only want to promote their name without making any real change in their community.

They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels, and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best speakers, not to the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness? They steadfastly refuse to see that Together Each Achieves More (TEAM).

They do not understand that they are no better than each other because of what they own, as a matter of fact, most of those Buppies are but one or two pay checks away from poverty. All of which is under the control of our pens in our offices and our rooms.


Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to read, continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are 'helping' their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little other than hold lavish conventions in our hotels. By the way, don't worry about any of them reading this letter, remember, 'THEY DON'T READ!!!!

(Prove them wrong. Please pass this on! After Reading

I recently went to St.Thomas and on my way to Morant Bay I came up on this body of foal smelling large brown water.
It looked to me like the sea and and the pond were one.The water had a sulfuric smell and all the plants near by were dead.
See Photo of Yallas pond 

VISIT JAMAICA AND GO TO THE POND : FIND A HOTEL NEAR BY


The most interesting thing about the Yallas pond. Is. The water is different from any other water. Sometime it has three colours  some times at the same time. If you look  you will see it has a brown colour and if you look further up it has a purple colour. By evening it is red like blood. Something is really  strange  about  this water.It is believed  it  is because two brothers  who kill off each  because of  it.  
<
It. Is believe  it was God  who sent a sign for  people to see
  his diapleasure.
 .
There are many versions to the said story but the fact is it surrounds a vast piece of land that was left by a father for 2 sons to share since he made no will. Here is one version told by an old citizen  of the area in his dialect.
 
There was a man who had two sons  di man was very rich and one day him go doctor and di doctor tell him dat him was very sick. Anyway, two twos di man tek sick and dead. Yes sah. Him never leave nuh will so when him dead  him di two sons start argue over di piece of land.

<
 Di two a dem did want fi himself and him family.  So dem argue fi months. Di whole town get fi know bout di two man argument. Well, one day di bredda dem start fight and one tek knife and stab di edda one. Well, him him see seh  him dead  di edda bredda go home an go kill himself.

 Dem say dat when dat happen one loud rumble start come from outa di sky and di earth start shake. When people look dem see water start come from outa di ground and by di next morning  it cover di whole a di land wha di two bredda dem was fighting over. Well, ever since dat day, we have a pond right  there so.
