A mento quartet from Port Antonio, Jamaica, formed 1955. They perform with bongos, banjo, rhumba box & kalimba / finger-piano. In the 50s, they were popular at The Trident Hotel & parties for 'the rich'n'famous', e.g. at Errol Flynn's residence. In the late 80s, interest was renewed, when Jules Shear heard them playing at the Trident - he returned later & produced Pop 'n' Mento & other albums. A new album - Great Expectation - is slated for release, late 2010. Official site:
