Behind the music: Future Sounds Image

by Biko Kennedy

For a country that spews music with geyser-like force, Jamaica is undoubtedly a melting pot of endless musical possibilities.

In part 4 of Jamaicansmusic's original series 'Behind the music' musicians Winston 'Merritone' Blake (Merritone Music), Producer/songwriter Danny Browne and Niko Browne, and Makonnen Blake-Hannah share their final thoughts on the future of Jamaican music.

"The problem [with] the Jamaican music industry is that it has not evolved at the pace of other territories around the world – like Europe, Asia and America," explains Makonnen Blake-Hannah. "[In terms of having] a proper payment structure, collection agencies, performing rights agencies to collect and do work. So I feel where Jamaica is really lacking in that particular area," he continued before talking on how numerous producers are neglecting foundation music like Mento and Ska.
