Miss Lou in Her Own Words

Today, I am sharing these two YouTube videos of Miss Lou in her own words. In this first video, Miss Lou explains the Jamaican patois, sings some of her favorite songs and talks about some of the expressions used.

Here, Miss Lou also discusses the linguistic and cultural influences on the Jamaican dialect, in particular, the Jamaican dialect's relation to the Twi language of Ghana.

These are two funny videos which will give you a glimpse of Miss Lou's inimitable style. Nice walk down memory lane for a lot of Jamaicans, I am sure.

Enjoy!
