Dancehall - The Rise Of Jamaican Dancehall Culture

This study of the 1980s Jamaican dancehall scene features hundreds of exclusive photographs and accompanying text that capture a vibrant, globally influential and yet rarely documented culture that has blended music, fashion and lifestyle since its inception.

With unprecedented access to the incredibly exciting music scene during this period, Beth Lesser's photographs and text are a unique way into a previously hidden culture. Dancehall is at the center of Jamaican musical and cultural life. From its roots in Kingston in the 1950s to its heyday in the 1980s, Dancehall has conquered the globe, spreading to the USA, UK, Canada, Japan, Europe and beyond.

This jam-packed visual history tells the story from its roots to its heights from the vantage of the true, respected insider. In the early 1980s, as Jamaica was in the throes of political and gang violence, Beth Lesser ventured where few others dared, and this book is a never-before-seen record of the exciting, dangerous world of Dancehall.

The album is a spectacular compilation of dancehall music classics but also a fantastic selection of slightly darker tracks. With artists like Yellowman, Tenor Saw, Sister Nancy, Ini Kamoze, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Michigan & Smiley, Super Cat, Cutty Ranks, Eek AMouse, Gregory Isaacs and more, the album features tracks that make you dance. more than one.

This book has become the sole literary reference in Jamaican dancehall culture, including hundreds of incredible shots, interviews and artist stories.
