Enjoy Jamaican folk songs again

Old time Jamaican folk songs are back on everybody's mind because they are singing and hearing them again, Sing and Play the Jamaican Way is now a karaoke favorite. Remember the days of Jane and Louisa? Hol 'im Joe? Dance again to Moonshine Tonight. Yes all over the world people are dancing!

So we are now in May. Sing and Play the Jamaican Way is making waves in the music and gift shops especially the Craft Cottage , Music Mart and Things Jamaican Shops. It is interesting to note that some shops sell mainly CDs, while for others, it is the book that holds the interest of the customers. There was a vibrant celebration of Jamaican folk music again at Bookophilia and everyone sang from their music sheets and their booklets.

Guardian Life Singers made it big in song and dance at their annual awards, and last week represented the company on Television Jamaica on the Morning Time show, at the launch of activities for Child Month.

Sound of Joy shared in the anniversary celebrations of the Dunns at the Terra Nova Hotel on Saturday May 1, and has been keeping up with a few weddings and funerals.
