8. Triston Palma, “Entertainment”

“Entertainment” was a plea to keep the dancehall free of violence and safe for everyone, and it was the wickedest dancehall rhythm to come out of those early years of the 80โ€™s. Triston begged people to come and dance and enjoy, thereby explaining clearly what dancehall music was all about. Nothing about repatriation, nothing politicalโ€”just dance and enjoy the โ€˜entertainment.โ€™
