Jamaican Folk Songs


Adwoa Dickson - Soprano

Lorraine Liyanage - Piano

Jamaica has a rich musical heritage spanning a diversity of styles and forms. Throughout the island’s modern history, music has played a significant role in the social, political and economic life of its people.

Adwoa’s recital draws from the wealth of Jamaica’s folk music – the music of the Jamaican people which, with its colourful range of forms, reflects the way of life of individuals or entire communities. The Jamaican folk song gives voice to the heart, soul and experience of the Jamaican people.

Adwoa Dickson (Soprano) is a professional singer who trained with Eiddwen Harrhy at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where she graduated with distinction. Adwoa is a solo performer of classical and Caribbean music and was recently a part of an ensemble formed by Voquality who performed the vocals for Black Panther the latest Marvel superhero film released in 2018. 

Accompanied by Lorraine Liyanage (piano).
