Mento-B: Calypso Band + Jamaican Folk Ensemble

Saturday, 15 September 2018 - 8:00pm
 
 
Join CALYPSO GEORGE and his band MENTO-B for a night of upbeat live MENTO and CALYPSO music, with a little REGGAE thrown in for good measure. 
 
A journey to the roots of Jamaican Ska and Reggae! 
 
George has been active on the Manchester Caribbean scene for many years and ran a successful jam night at the Iguana Bar in Chorlton until its closure in 2012.  He now regularly appears at jam nights around town as well as in the Caribbean community itself.  George has also performed successful gigs at Manchester Museum and the Cultural Collage World Music Festival.
 
Stop press: We now have JAMAICAN FOLK ENSEMBLE joining George and the boys on the night!
 
 
The Manchester-based Jamaican Folk Ensemble was established by Manchester’s Jamaica Society back in the 1980s with the aim of promoting and maintaining members’ cultural heritage. 
 
Although many of the founders have now retired back home to Jamaica, a few of the original members still remain.One of the ensemble’s main roles is to ensure that the many younger generations of Jamaicans learn about and appreciate their roots.
 
On Friday 15th they will be sharing their joyful melodies and rhythms with audiences of The Continental as guests of our headline act Mento-B.
 
Join CALYPSO GEORGE & MENTO-B on Saturday 15th September 2018.
