Jamaica: Reggae The natural Caribbean harmony may sound the sweetest on Jamaica, with the easy beats of reggae soaking into the island. "Negril buzzes as reggae pumps," says reader John Comfort of South Carolina. "Mellow mood, enticing mystery, and colorful unity of ocean and land lead to a mystical enchantment." And reader Andrew Wilkins went so far as to compose an ode: "Cool sand between my toes and stars so close you can touch. Locals light the bonfire as my eyes grow heavy with the rhythms of irie." Reggae relaxation has spread across the islands as the Caribbean soundtrack, whether during a set with Bankie Banx on Anguilla or on the radio on St. Croix.
