Go-Local Jamaica - Jamaica & Steel Pan Music

Steel PanThe Steel band music is becoming quite popular in Jamaica. It has become part of the repertoire of the Jamaican musical landscape.

There are quite a number of steel bands operating across the island presently. One can think of the Panoridim Steel Band operating out of the University of the West Indies and the Humming Bird Steel band to name a few… The rich musical tradition of some of our schools and churches has included steel bands, for example the Holy Childhood High School in St. Andrew.

Some schools are even entering their steel bands in the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission's Festival of Arts Competition and are doing extremely well. For more click here… http://www.golocaljamaica.com/readarticle.php?ArticleID=879

Do things the Go-Jamaica Way
Listen to Live Free Jamaican Radio

Power 106Talk is of course of the primary focus during the week but on the weekends you can hear some of the best Jamaican music ever made.

  • Perkins on Line
    Time: Mon - Fri: 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
    Host: 'Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins

    ''Perkins on Line' is spirited interaction with callers on a wide range of topics. It is described by many as 'The Poor Man's University'. A typical caller will often attribute his or her widening knowledge of events happening in and outside of Jamaica to the information garnered from just listening to these broadcasts.
    Host, Wilmot 'Motty' Perkins says the underlying intent of the programme is to 'focus public attention on the gaping hiatus between what is and what might be, and to do it within a broad framework that embraces not only the history of Jamaica, but the history of mankind'.
