|Third World Band|
Third World (band) started in the 70’s by Ibo Cooper and Cat Coore. They had hits such as 96° in the Shade, Now That We’ve Found Love and Try Jah Love, which was written by Stevie Wonder. Changes took place in the band during the 80’s, but they continued to have hits such as Forbidden Love and Committed. Today the band still continues to tour and record. This some of the best of Jamaica's music, check out the links!
Trelawny lies on the northwestern side of Jamaica. During the late 1700’s the planters grew dissatisfied with being almost out of reach of the seat of local government and lobbied to have parts of St. James & St. Ann merged into a new parish. They were successful and the parish is named after William Trelawny, the then Governor of Jamaica.
Trelawny was sugar territory with more estates than any other parish. Eventually, Falmouth became an export point for sugar, as it is a coastal town. The parish had the biggest Maroon community. The British forged a treaty with the Maroons in 1739 to stop them raiding the plantations. Fifty-odd years later, another uprising occurred and this time hundreds of Maroons were shipped to Nova Scotia (Canada) and then sent on to Sierra Leone (Africa).
Today, the parish earns income from farming, fishing, sugar production and tourism.
Tinkin’ Toe is a fruit that smells like cheesy/smelly toes, but is popular among the younger set. It’s not attractive and resembles a pea on growth hormone. The inside of the pods carry a seed, which is surrounded by a mealy pulp. I am told that the pulp takes good. I can’t personally recommend Tinkin’ Toe, but the people I ask seem to agree that it’s nice and tasty, even though it smells evil.
