Program Description
The most popular music in Jamaica today is the hard-edged sounds of dancehall. In this episode, Edgar experiences the power of the movement first hand at the Reggae Sumfest and Fully Loaded festivals. Top stars Elephant Man, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and others tear up the stage as capacity crowds express their appreciation with homemade flamethrowers and explicit dance moves. Edgar visits legendary producer King Jammy at his studio for some insight into the early days of the dancehall sound. At Sumfest, Edgar brings viewers behind-the-scenes to the backstage chaos and the culinary delights (chicken foot stew anyone?) of the festival. Music Voyager takes to the streets for an inspiring visit to Flankers, a poor neighborhood where local kids offer hope for the future and show us some amazing dance moves. We close the episode with a visit to the home and studio of Chino and Steven MacGregor, scorching young dancehall talents, who treat us to some jerk chicken and invite us into their recording studio to hear some dancehall works in progress.
