This crafty Mento song takes you on a journey of discovery of what ‘Night Food’ is.

It was only recently that I discovered Mento Music but immediately felt a connection to it. You can see straight away why they say Ska and Reggae sprouted from this genre. Mento is a traditional Jamaican Folk style of music mainly featuring acoustic instruments.

People normally say Mento and Calypso are the same but that is not the case. Although you can easily see why with the style of the songs, the lyrics and topics they cover; Social issues, community news and of course sexual innuendo.I wonder what dem call this night food?
