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.

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

Calypso Medleys (Solas Market/Water Come a Mi Eye)- The Wrigglers with Earnest Ranglin
Hill and Gully Rider/ Mandeville Road- Lord Composer and the Silver Seas Hotel Band
Dry Weather House- George Moxey & His Calypso Quintet & Hubert Porter
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
Sampson and Delilah- Chin’s Calypso Sextet

As always- ENJOY
