SORT BY Relevancy
Every Sunday the mood was set for a Nostalgic Simmer Down Sunday where neighbors played all the Aged Hits from DooWop to Country to Downbeat to Lovers Rock and R&B styles. It was a unsynchronized Sunday Sernde. My relatives 120 miles away in Montego Bay were no different but they added Standards and Rock n Roll Classics.
Here on Ensom Vibes we will have Throwback Jamaica Sundays in memory of my Spanish Town and Mobay heritage.
On Talk Jamaica this Sunday:
We will review the findings from the CDA report on the JFJ’s Sex Education Programme. First, we speak with Attorney at Law Kenyatta Powell and President of the Jamaica Association of Guidance Counsellors in Education Kayson Jones

We speak to Jamaica Observer Karyl Walker (in his first interview since the walk out at CVC press conference), Coordinator of Carimac West Jamaica Steffon Campbell, Journalist and Member of the Press Association Board Janet Silvera
This Sunday on Talk Jamaica we discuss the Jamaicans For Justice controversial sex education programme. Was it appropriate? Should they have consulted the government before introducing this programme? At what age is it appropriate to teach children about sex?
Join us this Sunday at 4pm as we discuss this issue, we will also have 'the week that was' and feedback.
On Talk Jamaica this Sunday we will look back at the massive Jamaica CAUSE rally in Half Way Tree and the arguments presented. We will also examine the arguments from Human Rights advocates along with a representative from CAUSE. Can there be consensus in the matter?

LIVE MUSIC :Jamaican Mento and Folk Songs Before Reggae
Mento is a style of Jamaican music that predates and has greatly influenced ska and reggae music. Mento typically features acoustic instruments, such as acoustic guitar, banjo, hand drums, and the rhumba box a large mbira in the shape of a box that can be sat on while played. The rhumba box carries the bass part of the music. Lord Flea and Count Lasher are two of the more successful mento artists.Mento is often confused with calypso, a musical form from Trinidad and Tobago.
Genres of music from Jamaica:Kumina Niyabinghi Mento Ska Rocksteady Reggae Sound systems Lovers rock Dub Dancehall Dub poetry Toasting Raggamuffin Roots reggae Reggae fusion Ska Punk
Sound System: Mobile sound systems that played American hits became popular in the 1950s in Kingston, Jamaica. Major figures in the early sound system scene included Duke Reid, Prince Buster and Clement "Coxsone" Dodd. In 1958, due to a shortage of new material, the first local rhythm and blues bands, most influentially the duo Higgs and Wilson (Joe Higgs and Roy Wilson), began recording to fulfil the local demand for new music.
Ska is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the late 1950s, and was the precursor to rocksteady and reggae. Ska combined elements of Caribbean mento and calypso with American jazz and rhythm and blues. The first ever ska recording was made by Count Ossie, a Nyabhingi drummer from the rasta community. It is characterized by a walking bass line accented with rhythms on the upbeat. In 1960s, ska was the dominant music of Jamaica .

The discussion segment begins at 5 p.m. Today, we look back on a call made by former Jamaican Prime Minister P.J. Patterson that more Jamaicans need to consider being more tolerant towards members of the LGBT community, bearing in mind current world trends. Does homophobia really exist in Jamaica? Should Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller act on her promise to hold a conscience vote on the matter of repealing the buggery law? What are religious leaders saying? What’s the position of civil society? We explore those issues and more in the discussion segment:
Then, later in our TALK BACK segment, we take your calls and present your responses to our feedback question: Do you agree with a suggestion by Former Prime Minister PJ Patterson that more Jamaicans should consider being tolerant towards members the LGBT community?
Today on Talk Jamaica we look at the JPS, were they in their right to give only 12 hours of service to certain communities? Why is it that we only heard from the politicians after the JPS decided to take such drastic actions? What are they doing to help rid electricity theft? We hear from a representative from JPS, Minister of Government and Member of Parliament Damion Crawford, and also a citizen who was affected. There is also 'the week that was' and feedback. Join us at 4pm, Talk Jamaica, commentary at its best

In the second discussion at 5:15, we look at the issue of abortion. Is it time to legalize abortion in Jamaica? What’s the church’s view? We speak with North West St. Ann MP, Dr. Dayton Campbell, whose sectoral presentation touched on that issue.
