Jamaica has a rich musical heritage spanning a diversity of styles and forms. Throughout the island’s modern history, music has played a significant role in the social, political and economic life of its people.
Adwoa’s recital draws from the wealth of Jamaica’s folk music – the music of the Jamaican people which, with its colourful range of forms, reflects the way of life of individuals or entire communities. The Jamaican folk song gives voice to the heart, soul and experience of the Jamaican people.
Adwoa Dickson (Soprano) is a professional singer who trained with Eiddwen Harrhy at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where she graduated with distinction. She later studied with Mary Brennan and has sung at theRoyal Opera House, Sadlers Wells, Pegasus Opera, Grand Union Orchestra, and Chineke Orchestra, amongst others.
