‘Where the music gone?’

Some veteran musicians within the local music fraternity are concerned that the formidable and often ubiquitous sound of contemporary Jamaican music is, for the most part, less musical than its predecessors. They say the “music is missing”.

Accomplished musician, Ken Lazarus says that, while he is averse to judging the modern sounds and ultimately, the “youngsters in the business,” he thinks Jamaican music at present is selling itself short.

“I won’t criticise the music,” he said before telling of his own experiences as a young artiste.
