A portrait of a group of pioneering reggae musicians, capturing the ongoing relevance of reggae and its social values, and the music's passion to revitalize an older generation while passing it on to younger listeners.
Shot largely in the hills above Kingston, British director Peter Webber gives a comeback platform to senior reggae stars like Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, and Cedric Myton. They collaborate on a music project that will capture the spirit of their music genre and pass on its values to the younger generation of artists. While rehearsing, they share their insights on reggae's past, present, and future.
What really makes this documentary soar high above others that focus on a specific musical style is that, in this, it provides a peek into the intimate lives of the legendary personalities which create it. Reggae music, like Jamaica, is all about peace and love. That is what the audience will remember about this rousing, heartfelt documentary.
