A new double disc compilation from Secret Records subsidiary label Sunrise Records featuring an overview of essential, early Caribbean folk tunes.

 

Dating all the way to the late 1920’s ‘Islands In The Sun…’ looks to give an in depth overview of fantastic Caribbean music that marked the start of Ska, Reggae, Dancehall and Rapso. Essentially Jamaican folk music, over it’s development Calypso music began incoporating elements of the various styles produced from the West Indies with topics ranging from love to enjoying life and island living. Some of the better known artists such as Lord Kitchener, The Mighty Sparrow and Count Owen all have multiple appearances on the compilation as their contribution to the genre is immesurable especially in breaking Calypso on over seas territories. For any one wanting a proper introduction to this unique genre look no further than ‘Island In The Sun: A History Of Caribbean Music’ and bask in the warm island spirit.


Release date: 11th March
