Jamaica-themed treats from BBC radio
Things kick off in August, when 6 Music and 1Xtra will be paying tribute to Jamaica's culture, as well as its music, and the effect that these have had on culture in the United Kingdom.
For example, 6th August is Independence Day in Jamaica. All day long the music will include styles with a large debt to the music of Jamaica, as well as the likes of reggae.
Meanwhile, an interview featuring electric guitar player Bob Marley's daughter, Cedella Marley, will be aired in the evening, among the many other things going on.
Bob Marley & The Wailers were of course famously behind tracks such as No Woman, No Cry and Buffalo Soldier.
And one example of the many 6 Music offerings that tie-in with Jamaica being independent for 50 years is Wheel and Come Again: The Rise of Jamaican Music, a documentary which will be airing August 5th.
