A little excursion into the earliest truly Jamaican music, mento. A fusion of EUropean, Carribean and African styles, this music was played on banjo, Rhumba box (think huge finger piano), Bamboo wind instruments and home made percussion. Reggae fans will instantly hear something that is familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. Anyway- lets play some songs:
Big Boy and Teacher- Chin’s Calypso Sextet
Ten Penny Nail- Hubert Porter and the Jamaican Calypsonians
Don’t Fence Her In- Harold Richardson and the Tickers
Miss Daisy and Brown Skin Gal- The Jamaican Calypsonians

The Naughty Little Flea-Boysie Grant & Reynold’s Calypso Clippers
Hog Inna Mi Cocoa- Lily Verona with McKenzie’s All Stars
Names of Funny Places- Hubert Porter
Melda- Chin’s Calypso Sextet
It All Began With Adam and Eve- Lord Flea & his Calypsonians
Linstead Market/Day-O- The Wigglers
Banana- Cecil Knot & His Joybell Orchestra
Doctor- Count Lasher
Rum and Coconut Water- The Jamaican Calypsonians
