JAMAICA: Absolutely

Product no.: HP125

Jamaican culture has touched every corner of the globe. Whether it’s the pulsating rhythms of Bob Marley’s reggae music, dancehall patois or the pounding footsteps of Usain Bolt, the sounds of Jamaica reverberate throughout the world.

Long described as a microcosm of Planet Earth, Jamaica has been influenced by many cultures and traditions. It is a country with a rich history – admittedly of severance and suffering – but, above all, with a will and capacity for survival and achievement. When Columbus arrived, and beheld the palm-fringed beaches and lush, forested mountains, he described it as the fairest isle he had ever seen. But Jamaica is more than just beach and scenery. It is a rich diversity of cultures and traditions. It is rich in sounds and flavours. It is a feast for the senses.

Jamaica is Rasta and reggae; rum and rhythm; jerk and jazz; coffee and calypso.

Illustrated with more than 200 photographic images, Jamaica: Absolutely looks beyond the beach and gives an insight into the cultural, historical and social aspects of Jamaica.
