The Foundation Yard

The Rasclat

Saturday 10AM-Noon

I play Jamaican music. I live & breathe for it. I have been captivated by the sounds of the West Indies since i was little. Calypso, Mento, Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, Dub. i mainly focus on 1962-1975, not really into roots reggae as much, i like the older stuff more.
