C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Eek-A-Mouse

Known as Eek-a-Mouse, Ripton Joseph Hylton is a reggae musician from Kingston, Jamaica, who is often called one of the pioneers of "singjay." The word singjay is a portmanteau of "singer" and "deejay," the latter being a form of rhtyhmic Jamaican chant. So, they're basically saying that he combines singing technique with rhythmic chanting (usually traditional Caribbean rhythms) to create his own, unique sound.

Got any favorite reggae musicians?
