Portraits of Jamaican Music

Pierre Marc Simonin, 2003, 52 min.

Limiting Jamaican music to just reggae would be most unfair. Within a forty year period jamaicans have invented mento, ska, rocksteady, reggae, dub music, dancehall, and hardcore dancehall (sometimes known in the west as ragga). Take a visual trip down memory lane and relive several great episodes with Johnny Moore and The Skatalites, Toots and the Maytals, and Bunny Wailer.
