I love the music and above all the history and the stories behind every kind of music. The mento music is a style of Jamaican folk music that predates and has greatly influenced ska and reggae music. In my research I got hit the pictures of colorful instruments and I tried to draw this instrument, the rumba box, only luggage declared by this girl, reminding in these times where it could be always possible to travel and to take a piece of own cultural heritage without barriers, suspicions and marginalization. In this direction the message from Jamaica and its musical heritage through reggae is and has always been colorful claiming of peace and fight.
