Mit ‘Documentary’ getaggte Beiträge

Die Webserie Noisey Jamaica geht in die siebte Runde und featuret diesmal mit Konshens einen meiner absoluten Lieblingsartists. Unglaublich talentiert, mit einer großen Bandbreite an Themen und einer grandiosen Delivery.

Ehemals mit seinem Bruder Delus im Team als Sojah, nun seit Jahren noch erfolgreicher als Solo-Artist unterwegs.

Vorhang auf für Konshens.

Durch bin ich auf diese Dokumentation von 1981 gestossen, die es komplett auf Youtube zu sehen gibt und sich primär mit Sir Coxsone und Young Lion aus England auseinandersetzt.

Viel Spaß beim anschauen!

Sound Business is an early ’80s documentary directed by Molly Dineen that focuses primarily on England’s Sir Coxsone and Young Lion sound systems. For those unfamiliar with reggae-dancehall culture, the film is a solid primer as uniquely-voiced narrator Mikey Dread leads you through a fascinating view of an underground music network that stays true to its Jamaican roots, giving viewers not only some glorious vibrations for your ears but some insightful interviews as well. Come see the crews make dubplates, build custom speakerboxes, and engage in a sound clash for the finale.
