Neues Reggae Buch von Werner Troeder

Von: Manfred Bischoff

Werner Troeder hat eine englische Version seines Reggae-Buchs herausgebracht. Der Titel lautet: Reggae - From Mento to Dance Hall

About the Book: Written from a personal perspective by a German who has made Jamaica his home, the book contains in alphabetical order, the history of Jamaican music from the derivation Mento to Dancehall. It features the discography and biography of leading exponents of Jamaica's music; such as Lee Scratch Perry, King Yellowman, The Heptones, Sly and Robbie, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Buju Banton and many others. About the Author: Werner Troeder is a German who resides in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. His first visit to Jamaica in 1977 inspired him to come back several times per year to collect records, meet with muscians and radio DJs, and do some research on the origins and development of Reggae.

This book, first published in 1993, in German, is as a result of his love for Jamaican music. He has made Jamaica his home since 1994, and lives with wife Annemarie and their two adopted children, Amy and Marcus.
