Jamaican Music Videos by Rosemarie Gordon

First, let me say that for me a music video is 'Jamaican' only if:

  • If is sung by a Jamaican
  • If it is produces by a Jamaican
  • If it depicts Jamaica

Trevor Baille, Ras Kassa, Big Daddy, Kevin Lee, Ray Smith, Nordia Rose and Asha Mchail are some of the big names in the Jamaican music video industry. A fairly new industry that got started in the late 1980’s but has grown tremendously.

For me, and a lot of other Jamaicans, the TVJ’s Saturday programme "Where its’ at" back in the days , gave us the opportunity to watch music videos of our favorite tunes.

It was a one hour programme dedicated to just showing both local and international music videos. I think this was Jamaica’s first formal music video programme.

Of course you know that if an artist wants to increase sales on a particular song all they need to do is make a music video.What this does is take his or her music to an audience that would not normally be listening to that particular tune. So the competition now is who is able to produce a music video the fastest.

It is now a lot easier than before to get someone to produce a music video for you. The wealth of raw talent that is available is amazing. And the number of Jamaican cable companies that have designated slots or channels just for showing Of course, there is also the internet with several popular video sites, including youtube that offers free viewing.

Here is a list of some of my favorites...
