Who doesn't like the music of the islands? JAMAICAN MUSIC & SOUL offers two films about Jamaica s world-renown home-grown music.
The first, MADE IN JAMAICA, features wall-to-all music from 19 bands, including Bunny Wailer, Toots & the Maytals, Third World, Doc Marshall, and Sly Dunbar & Robby Shakespeare. Through music, interviews, and performances, this documentary explores the roots and influence of reggae and its evolution into island and rap and dance hall music. It is a powerful portrait of reggae s best musicians and of Jamaica itself the island that spawned a musical revolution.
THE JOURNEY OF THE LION is a rare docudrama starring Rastifari musician Brother Howie, who dreams of the land of his ancestors Africa. On a journey in search of his roots and his destiny he travels across three continents with his humor and sensitivity intact.
