The book offers detailed information in seventy-five chapters, and a final epilogue on reggae in Spanish, on the history of Jamaican music, including artists, styles, eras and the social, political and religious changes on the island. Until now, this information was virtually unknown in Spanish and could only be found in fragmented form on the Internet.
Beyond the figure of Bob Marley, the book redresses the historical injustice of the Spanish-speaking world’s lack of knowledge about Jamaican music. It also establishes connections with current musical trends.
In short, “La Isla del Tesoro: Historia de la música jamaicana del siglo XX” is the first book in Spanish to compile the history of Jamaican music in its golden era. Told by the best Spanish specialists on the subject, it offers a complete vision of this musical genre.
