In this Feb. 17, 2014 photo, a cardboard cutout is shown displayed on the bass drum of the band’s kit at the Alpha Boys’ School, a residential vocational school in Kingstom, Jamaica. The school has been a cornerstone of Jamaica’s prolific musical culture for over a century, producing numerous musicians who have taken the homegrown musical genres of ska, rocksteady and reggae to the world. At the school, students between 8 and 18 are taught to read music and understand harmony and composition, if they don’t focus on the school’s more traditional trades like woodworking and tailoring.
