ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"On this very special album we hear how the younger generation of Moore Town Maroons, in conversation with their elders, are bringing new life to the unique Maroon musical traditions handed down from their foreparents. Drawing on two of the most African of Jamaica's traditional music’s, Kromanti and Kumina, these direct descendants of the great leader and Jamaican National Hero, Nanny, show that her spirit remains very much alive among them."

-- Kenneth Bilby, author of True-Born Maroons and compiler of Drums of Defiance: Music of the Maroons of Jamaica

“The Maroons of Jamaica did not only cherish and preserve African Culture they brought with them but continued being creative artists ever since. Especially in the area of expressive culture, like music, dance, ritual and verbal art! The exemplary Double CD of the Granny Nanny Cultural Group by the dedicated researcher and cultural activist Harcourt Fuller does thoroughly document this achievement that has been acknowledged by UNESCO including the Windward Maroon heritage on the representative list of the intangible world heritage.“

-- Wolfgang Bender, Ethnologist and Honorary Professor, University of Bayreuth, Germany and Co-editor of A Reader in African-Jamaican Music, Dance and Religion
