Mento Pioneer:The Alerth Bedasse Story
 

Alerth Bedasse stamped his class on the Jamaican music scene during the 1950s when he teamed up with the songwriter Everard Williams. The two were responsible for some of the greatest Mento/Calypso songs produced by Ivan Chin and backed by the Chin's Calypso Sextet.
In this interview feature, Alerth tells of his amazing story from boyhood day in rural Jamaica to his time spent in capital city, Kingston.Sadly, the great man passed away a few months after this feature was done and this production may well be the only one of its kind on the life and time of this icon. This is a must for all who are into the great Jamaican music and culture.
