Jamaican community - Domino Playing

It's official!

I've just launched our exciting & hugely resourceful Jamaican Community Buzz feature!

"Big Up" Your Community Right Here!

Click Here To Tell Us About It!

If you know anything about Jamaica, you'll know that every parish has it's own peculiarities - every single one.

You'll hear someone say, for example:

  • "You talk like somebody from St. Elizabeth",

    or another ask...

  • "A Trelawny yuh get yam from?"

But it gets even better! As there are even more peculiarities within each parish, at the community level; so...

It is time to learn - and share.

We have 'opened the lines' to hear from you about our communities right now!  Our website fans and visitors are now showcasing their communities - small and large, and saying why it's unique.

But believe me, there are thousands of communities more to hear from!
Here (already) are some early- and I might dear say lovely, submissions:

See, how easy? Click here to share a few lines about yours right now.


Lots To Learn!

Among other things, we'll hear - and share:

  • Landmarks (eg. Schools, Rivers and Lighthouses)
  • Major products (if any, eg. Breadfruit, Sugar Cane or Fishing)
  • Recognitions received (if any)
  • Notable sons and daughters
  • Their distinct culture (shrimp country? mento band? etc)
  • The history of the community
  • The location (including directions and how to get there)... and of course,
  • What exactly makes it special; Why we should know about it (eg. the scenery, the culture, prowess in sports, business, academics etc. etc.)

My over 80% North American visitors are drooling to hear from our small communities.

They want to travel and experience the real Jamaican culture and this is the opportunity to connect!

And, if you have a community contact (club, church or school), you have the opportunity to share that as well.

It will certainly help if someone needs to make contact for a tour or any special engagement.

Be One Of The First! Click Here to share your community right now

N.B. This initiative will, overtime, create and enviable repository of interesting Jamaican communities for our (many) visitors and friends of Jamaica to explore.

Who knows, yours truly might just surprise you and stop by for a drink, a dive in the river, or a game of dominoes!

jamaican community - family reunion

Everyone Is Invited

So, if you are Jamaican (overseas or yard) click here to chat about your J'can community right now.

Not Jamaican, no problem (as we say), if you visited any local community, you too can share your feedback on that community, we'll appreciate it even more.

Not sure where to start? 

Just start 'talking', I did just that when I shared my this- my own experience.

Watch this page in a few days! :-)

Share YOUR Community - tell us about it: landmarks, notable sons and daughters, culture or what exactly makes it special. We are waiting...

No two Jamaican communities are alike, each is special in it's own way and our fans and visitors can't wait to hear about yours.
