JAMAICA HAS A UNIQUE CHARACTER and an inherent "African-ness" of its people. The connection to Africa is strongly felt as Kingston was the centre of the triangular trade route that took slaves from Africa, and sugar and rum on to Europe. African traditions were safeguarded by slave runaways - maroons - and re-inforced by the "Back to Africa" movement of the 1910's and 20's and latterly by Rastofarianism in the 1960's and 70's. It was the birthplace of Bob Marley.
