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 80’s. Triston begged people to come and dance and enjoy, thereby explaining clearly what dancehall music was all about. Nothing about repatriation, nothing political—just dance and enjoy the ‘entertainment.’
