Links for Feb. 15, 2008

15 Feb

First, a quite appropriate piece for Jamaica’s National Reggae Month: an analysis of the Biblical and Rastafarian references of Bob Marley’s lyrics from writer and blogger Geoffrey Philp.

Next, a scary story in the New York Times of fishermen poisoning Jamaica’s Rio Grande. Fresh curried conch will never taste the same again.

Speaking of unfortunate animals, cockfighting in the Dominican Republic, with some great photos, by the NYT.

Cuba’s underground music scene, polygraph tests for Jamaican police, and a new documentary about the large number of internally displaced Afrocolombians.
