SOUL REBELS

The untold story of Dancehall music

 52' by Stephane Delphin- 2017 DNTZ Productions

Sulphurous music, Dancehall dethroned Reggae in Jamaica. Music of the ghetto and the gangsters, this music carries strangely the rhythms of the first Jamaican religions in 18th and 19th centuries. Worships unknown or despised by most of inhabitants. Through images of ceremonies and interviews of the creators of the Dancehall, appears a thirst of spirituality that we find in Jamaican music
Featuring Sly Dunbar, Clevie Browne, Sizzla, Papa Jaro, The Unstoppable Kumina band, Fil Calender and more....

Kumina is an african-Jamaican practice, rooted in Bakongo culture (presently DRC). Before the invention of Nyabinghi, it was music practised by the first Rastas

Clevie Browne began as a teenager :  drummer for Lee Scratch Perry, Augustus Pablo then in the Temple : STUDIO 1  aka Mr Coxsone Dodd.  With his alter ego :  Steely Johnson (RIP) Clevie are rated as the Dancehall music REAL foundations .

Sizzla is maybe the first Dancehall Rasta star. Alternately furious or spiritual, he enjoys a big respect among the musicians.
