Ital Delroy Anthony

Local Artist, Musician and Medicinal Plant Expert

 

Ital has spent his whole life on the island of St. John learning about his island culture and heritage from the elders in his family and community.

 

As a child his mom would take him around the island seashores and teach him about the plants and their healing properties.

 

In school he was taught native crafts from Mr. Herman Prince.

 

His love of music came from island scratch bands and the sounds of steel pans that played at holiday celebrations.
