This chapter discusses how the Guyanese diaspora grew in the 1970s as a result of the political developments in Guyana and a number of other “push” and “pull” forces. There was a shift in the geography of the diaspora during this period. As UK immigration laws became more restrictive, immigration laws in Canada and the United States became more liberal, and Guyanese began moving in substantial numbers to those nations. By the end of the 1970s, New York and Toronto had joined London as key centers of the Guyanese diaspora. Guyanese in London had access to music from many Guyanese musicians, while a younger generation of musicians had already placed a powerful stamp on British pop music.

Keywords:   Guyanese diaspora, 1970s, Guyana, UK immigration laws, Canadian immigration laws, US immigration laws, Guyanese musicians, British pop music
