The great singer, songwriter, and Rastafarian Spiritualist Bob Marley once said 'One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.'
And the music of the city of Kingston that bore him is so palpable that you can see it affecting the people on the streets and creating a sense of rhythm and realism that is heartfelt and memorable. You can fell the music even in the Kingston hotels and in the people who work in them and at night the city really comes to life. This city is the jewel of the Jamaican Island and you can see it in the eyes of the people and taste it in the food.
