  1. This very good from the dancers point of view,and from their era, however
    There need to be a complete documentary from the initial stage from u roy, i-roy, dillinger, suger Minot, big yute etc. All I am seeing is snippets of various stages.
    Dancehall is a genre which is before hiphop. First dancehall song was in 1970 ,lot of people don't even know who coin the name dancehall. Dancehall is huge and long established.

  2. Great documentary! In the end they said that you should come to Jamaica to learn and experience. I was just wondering, how safe is it for a white person to come to Jamaica and go to all those downtown parties to get the real experience, talk to people etc. What would be the attitude to a person like me being there?

  3. Thank you for sharing these documentaries! It really helps when your learning some history and to understand. To step back and watch learn and listen. I never been to Jamaica but now I don't have to give room for judgement to come because what I learned from this video. Keep Sharing the Culture and pray the some new doors opens for Jamaica!

  4. Iโ€™m an electronic musician from New Jersey in the states and just really learning about dancehall as the foundation of a lot thatโ€™s happening in the global dance culture so I this video has been extremely enlightening and Iโ€™m grateful to our fam in Jamaica for discovering this new economy of culture and community. Rarely is a cultural movement in the US so self aware as these cats on the vid. The understanding of making this music scene into a major Jamaican industry with many roles to play is an amazing start and I hope to see this knowledge spread to hopefully bring more profits into the island as the center of community dancehall scene who built a framework that many other cultures can replicate worldwide in especially struggling economies who can use the community and something more fun to produce income together. I suppose itโ€™s about having the right people leading the vanguard and keeping this scene growing.

    * LOVED THIS DOC but only beef with This video is having so much western white girls bringing their feminist critique which will do nothing but make starving females and the girls from the island seem to be having a lot less of a problem with the culture of their own people. No one needs to here this first world liberal bullshit. We ALL need to do things we donโ€™t exactly want to if we want to eat, white girls. You donโ€™t want to shake your ass? I donโ€™t want to learn 50 new types of software in a month and give up my sleep….but guess what? Life is NOT about what you want. Thatโ€™s some privileged thinking thatโ€™s blind to real life. Like the boys talk about enduring the violence and bullshit bringing them down so maybe they can be more understanding of the culture as it is or if they wanna show concern for The sexual nature of female dancing it would be a shockingly open minded show of intellect and humanity to show concern for what the guys deal with if they wanna be empathetic to a foreign culture instead of just repeating the same old whining that they get away with in the โ€œdeveloped worldโ€.

    Letโ€™s love and respect what we get from Jamaica and dancehall and keep spreading the knowledge and reality but drive the communal aspect and philosophy that it takes a village to make an economy out of culture like This so try to restrain from taking too much of the pie and put profits back into the scene like any other business. The Jamaicans have the right idea clearly but need to add to selecta, toaster, dancer…..manager and accountant and web developer and they can all build a solid middle class for the whole towns if they keep the people on their minds and not just their selves. Everyone can feed their kids. This is a global export culture. Use Japan with anime as a model to understand what Iโ€™m saying maybe. I may be totally wrong but I think this is the roles needed to fullfill this beautiful dream of the poor becoming financially stable by Being one. Fuck communism, THIS is how the problems of capitalism can be flipped to work for the people! Someone in Jamaica please understand what Iโ€™m saying (if Iโ€™m right I donโ€™t know but maybe u tried and Iโ€™m wrong) but I think this will help. A good organizer with the right skilled workers behind them is salvation for ur ppl. Best of luck and one love!

  5. I would like to say that I would like to see more of the women from the JA dancehall scene giving their own opinion, and not these European girls, b coz, ah fe we ting. Dun talk

  6. Not to offend anybody, but the swedish girl is in the wrong place, a feminist girl who complain about the explicit side/women in dancehall environment, Dancehall is a gyalis ting lol it's jamaica
