Cover
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 28.08.2014 - 241 Seiten
Vibe Merchants offers an insider’s perspective on the development of Jamaican popular music. This rare perspective focuses on the actual details of music making practice, rationalised in the context of the economic and creative forces that locally drive music production. By focusing on the work of audio engineers and musicians, recording studios and recording models, Ray Hitchins highlights a music creation methodology that has been acknowledged as being different to that of Europe and North America. The book leads to a broadening of our understanding of how Jamaican Popular Music emerged, developed and functions.
