A SNAPSHOT of Jamaica's music history is captured in a mural which now brightens the section of Water Lane, near its intersection with East Street, in downtown Kingston.


The mural is on the building which is provides a temporary house to the recently opened music museum.

The museum is being housed in a building owned by the Institute of Jamaica on Water Lane in the heart of the city until a permanent home is found.

Months ago, the curator and director of the Jamaica Music Museum, Herbert 'Herbie' Miller, told The Gleaner the idea of a music museum was to collect, preserve and exhibit information on the country's music history.

Miller reported then that the expansive mural was being created by a group of youngsters.
