Jamaica Fi Real

Book Cover

To the world at large Jamaica means sunny beaches, reggae and rum, but Jamaica Fi Real: Beauty, Vibes and Culture goes far beyond the surface...

Exposing and exploring the unique things that make Jamaica. In some cases setting the record straight, and also highlighting some significant achievements and little known facts about Jamaica.

Beautiful; aggressive; exuberant, talkative; humorous; resourceful; unpredictable ‚ Jamaica brings many adjectives to mind, but boring is not one of them.

''Jamaica Fi Real'' provides an in-depth look at Jamaica‚ its people, history, music, sports, religion and culture, creating a vivid twenty-first century portrait of perhaps the world's most fascinating island.

Author of bestselling book Reggae Routes: The Story of Jamaican Music and longstanding columnist with the Jamaica Observer and the Jamaica Gleaner newspapers, Kevin O'Brien Chang, paints a real and insightful portrait of Jamaica looking at its music, culture, sports, religion, history and people.
