    i think I actually SAW this documentary on PBS one time- the one with this viet cong soldier in his 50s, talking about what it was like in the war and how the american soldiers seemed mentally ill and almost suicidal- both from how they acted and from the propaganda on their side- so the war was about fighting off an outbreak of insane or sick people to protect normal people. The interview where the guy was talking about how they knew they would win because they were fighting for life and they "loved life" like in the song, but the americans seemed to like death and killing...

    i want to see that documentary

    I saw this incredible documentary by this Australian cameraman who went on the front line in Vietnam, filming from the Vietnamese point of view, so it was very biased against the Americans. He said it really changed him, because until you live on their level like that, when it's complete survival, you don't know what it's about. He's never been the same since, because it's so devastating, people dying all the time.
    The way he portrayed the Vietnamese was as this really crafted, beautiful race. The Americans were these big, fat, pink, smelly things who the Vietnamese could smell coming for miles because of the tobacco and cologne. It was devastating, because you got the impression that the Americans were so heavy and awkward, and the Vietnamese were so beautiful and all getting wiped out. They wore a little silver Buddha on a chain around their neck and when they went into action they'd pop it into their mouth, so if they died they'd have Buddha on their lips. I wanted to write a song that could somehow convey the whole thing, so we set it in the jungle and had helicopters, crickets and little Balinese frogs. (Kris Needs, 'Dream Time In The Bush'. Zigzag (UK), November 1982)

    De colonialist well work on us boy. How can Africans steal their own music and how can caribbean people steal their own music? We are all one people, Africans. I'm from the caribbean and it's amazing to see that our ancesters were able to pass down their culture to us under the most trying circumstances and Africans on the continent were able to hold on to their culture through the numerous attacks by the Europeans to decimate our culture and spread theirs. Let's stop giving them the power to continue to seperate us. If we think deep enough we should all realize that a conscious effort has been made to seperate Africans around the world because they know there is power in unity. If we look at the Jewish people it doesn't matter where they are found in the world they call themselves Jewish and will do any and everything possible to make sure the state of Isreal succeeds. We as Africans around the world need to take this approach. Stop giving other people the power to separate us and work for the progress of Africans world wide. Be happy that our African culture is dominating world over. Let us not forget that there was a time that we were considered nobody's and that nothing worthwhile could come out of mother Africa. Well we are all proving together that this couldn't be further from the truth. Let us embrace each other for we are all one people stemming from the same root, Africa. It's all about reeducation ourselves. It's happening slowly but surely so let's not lose patience with each other.


    Caribbean and African cultures ao similar. I'm Nigerian and I have a close friend from Trini and we have so much in common. And I can't wait to go to a Caribbean Carnival.


    I always shake my Jamaican bumbum to this song


    This is afrobeats and has 0 Caribbean influence


    Trinidad cant get enough!!!!!!!!! LOVE UUUUU TIMAYA

    big up to all african youtubers out there who got this Jamaican gyal inlove with Afo-beats



    i am a trinidadian lady and i love music i dont give a shit whos trying to claim it. we do have similar cultures, even foods, and dance movements, it doesnt matter who conquered who we are all here and diverse now. lets celebrate the opportunity for variety!



    I swore this was a Trini song man. Shoot , big shout-out to Nigeria from The Caribbean.


    love from St. Lucia, Caribbean! African music is the bomb!



    Nigerian music been hitting international by storm.its like a bubble burst.Africa the sleeping giant has woken up.






    jamaica's soft power identity crisis as africa supercedes its geo-cultural positioning. jamaica has taken over the world (the obligatory davido feature on every rap album in the past 3 years, afroswing, tropical house marimbas), including jamaica itslef:

    When this song hit the FM airwaves, it was like a bomb hit. It was unlike anything any of us had heard before. This is in the mid-60's and things yes, they were a changing. This song had a cult following, and you could not find the album to purchase anywhere. This was THE song that made the airwaves and when they played it on FM radio at night, people would just sit for 19:00 minutes in awe at what they were hearing. This was one of the iconic songs for our generation.
