034 – Ska Jamaica’s Way

The Prizefighters are a Minneapolis band who really studies Jamaican music. This has led them to be picked to back living Jamaican legends including Stranger Cole, Patsy Todd, Roy Panton, Yvonne Harrison, Charlie Organaire, and “King of Ska” Derrick Morgan. Aaron, Tony, and Courtney from the band join us to discuss the nuances and particulars of playing Jamaican music and the ways it has and hasn’t been done since the 1960s.
