This month we take a look at the incredible musical heritage of the island of Jamaica. There are so many musical developments that can be credited to Jamaican producers and musicians that are the fundamentals of modern dance music - sound systems, bass-heavy productions, remixes and MCing to name but a few. Expect to hear mento, ska, rocksteady, roots, dub, dancehall and more.
