We have selected magnificent Jamaican Christmas tracks for you this year from 1936-1977 from Toots and The Maytals, The Gaylads, Bob Marley and The Wailers, Lord Creator, and many more. There are many Christmas traditions that celebrate the holiday in Jamaica and this year, we’re going to focus on a Christmas time tradition that has seen a little less prominence recently but has a rich history that deserves some attention: Jonkonnu. With its origins from Africa, the Jonkonnu has transformed over the centuries that it has been performed. It is mentioned in Jamaican history accounts as early as the 18th century. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas! PLEASE ADD THIS SHOW TO YOUR PLAYLIST ON MIXCLOUD or SHARE IT ON FACEBOOK. XO, Generoso and Lily
