This special issue of Volume! is dedicated to Jamaican music. Its nine texts, along with a dozen reviews of major recent books, offer a description and an analysis of the main features of these musics, through their uses – from riddims to sound sytems – and discourses – from culture to slackness. Gathering works from leading scholars in the field, this survey sheds new light on the main debates that stem from Jamaican popular music.
