This documentary explores Jamaica's musical heritage, from spiritual reggae to the more contemporary and exuberant dancehall, which continues to reflect the island's social and cultural contradictions. The film is packed with fantastic performance footage from some of the island's most popular artists including Bunny Wailer and Toots And The Maytals, and spans several generations. The interview footage explores how the music deals with ongoing local issues including ghetto violence, the enduring legacy of Bob Marley, spirituality, sexuality and the role of women, although the concert footage alone makes this a worthwhile cultural documentary.
