WEST INDIAN MUSIC APPRECIATION SOCIETY
by ERIC DENHAM
Back in the mid-60's I heard a record by The Skatalites titled "Guns Of Navarone" and it opened my mind to a new sound from Jamaica. It was then that I heard "007" Shanty Town by Desmond Dekker and from this time I was hooked on the music. I decided it was time for me to start running the West Indian Music Appreciation Society covering the Jamaican music scene on both the island and in the UK. The society ran until the mid-70's and then due to financial problems it had to be closed down.
In March 2013 I decided it was time to reserect the society and to this day I produce a newsletter containing articles and information about Jamaican music around the world both past and present. Details on how to purchase the newsletter are available from email@example.com
