iRADIO.tt Blog + Journal: Appraisal, Opinion, Information. The Spoken Word

By Nigel Campbell
Caribbean music, from the earliest transcriptions by notation and recordings on disc, to modern digital replication, captures emotions and sounds that define a melting pot of influences and commonalities. This blog is a collection of critical appraisals of music performance and recordings from the Caribbean, and opinions on the business of music here. It also serves as the online journal, information clearing-house, and discussion board for all things music and entertainment from iRADIO.tt…online all the time!
