Maybe the caption for this post is too blatantly bias.
I will admit I have not listened to all 10 finalists in the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) 2010 Festival Competition but from the moment I heard this song on television it became a personal favorite. It’s catchy, it has that old time Jamaican mento vibes to it.
This is a simple video showcasing simple Jamaican culture. The lyrics are about encouraging Jamaicans to appreciate and embrace our own culture a little more.
