Drum Rhythms of the Caribbean CD Cover

“In 1990 I went to the Caribbean to study at the renowned Jamaica School of Music…Four years later, I returned to undertake research in traditional Caribbean rhythms.  The experience included listening, learning and performing in traditional settings.  The people that I met, the rhythms that I learnt and the history behind those rhythms, have had a profound impact on my life as a percussionist and educationalist. One of the many outcomes of my studies/research in Jamaica was the creation of this CD.”
Anthony Reid
