intro to jamrock

The jamaican ensemble of the international music project visited today. I had no idea that ziggy marley sang the theme to arthur. Two men and three women marched in wearing clothes and dreds that made the young kids laugh initially. They played cumbia (sp?) and then talked about the history of jamaican music (the kids cheered loudest for mentions of sean paul and elephant man, didnt seem much for beenie man..oh but they were into the brief rendition of the cops theme). Last month was the cuatro performance, so I have a fantasy of monthly performance... doubt it though. Oh, and I wish people always did the washing clothes dance.
