Tower Isle Hotel, strolling calypso players

Description

Three calypso players with guitar, rattle and sticks, entertain a female guest on the beach at the Tower Isle Hotel. Jamaican hotels have endeavoured to provide visitors with a unique taste of the island’s culture and particularly its music with the use of cabaret and local bands. The instruments used are often made from local materials such as gourd, goatskin and bamboo.
