The Jamaican Parliament Audio Database


The Jamaican Parliament Audio database (JPAD) is a part of the Memory project by dj afifa. The Memory project investigates how music and the sound environment can affect what we remember and what we forget. The Memory project explores both individual Memory and national Memory.

JPAD is important to understanding and preserving national Memory.

The database is a collection of audio from sittings of the Houses of Parliament in Jamaica from 2016 to present. Audio from the database is taken from coverage by the Public Broadcasting Corporation of Jamaica (PBCJ).

Excerpts from the database are broadcast on Decolonizing the Archive Radio every Wednesday 3pm BST.
