Instrumental music at civic functions
THE EDITOR, Sir: I WAS not happy with some of the musical renditions delivered at the Indoor Sports Centre in honour of our athletes recently.
I concede, though, that Jamaicans on the whole will have different tastes for the various types of popular music that identifies our culture these days.
However, what seems to have been happening over and again is that the organisers of these functions keep making the claim that in many an instance, they have not gotten what they bargained for from these performers when it comes to content, delivery format, or style.
If I am correct that organisers cannot guarantee output at the point of delivery at these events, then the thing to do is to use live or recorded instrumental music, which should fit the bill perfectly, don’t you think? DERRICK D SIMON derrickdsimon @yahoo.com
