Despite lots of articles I didn´t see much live music venues at all, and the guide books and websites didn´t list much of anything. I must not have been looking in the right ones because I can´t believe a dynamic city like CT doesn´t have a cracking live music scene.
I was trying to talk someone into taking me to the Marcus Garvey center they have, supposedly the center of the rasta community there, but he was very, very clear that it would be too dangerous.
Through searching I did discover an artist named Black Dillinger, who sounds intriguing...anyone here heard of him?

Did you try and keep it oriented around tunes that reference Garvey (Spear, Diamonds, etc)?
Did you try and put more African artists in (Lucky Dube, Alpha Blondy etc)?
Is it more of a dancehall crowd rough and ready, or a rockers crowd, old school?
