Item Description
New edition on Soul Jazz Books/Records of this classic large format book – the definitive photographic book and
essential guide to Jamaican Dancehall in the 1980s, featuring hundreds of amazing photographs with accompanying
text, interviews and biographies. This book captures a previously unseen era of musical culture, fashion and lifestyle.
Dancehall is a culture that encompasses music, fashion, drugs, guns, art, community, technology, and more. Many of
todayʼs music and fashion styles can be traced back to Dancehall culture and continue to be influenced by it today.
Born in the 1950s out of the neighbourhood soundsystems of Kingston, Dancehall grew to its height in the 1980s before
a massive influx of drugs and guns made the scene too dangerous for many. Dancehall remains at the centre of
Jamaican musical and cultural life. From its roots in Kingston in the 1950s to its heyday in the 1980s, Dancehall
conquered the globe, spreading to the USA, UK, Canada, Japan, Europe and beyond.
Dancehall is an essential reference book for anyone interested in Reggae, as well as a unique photographic and textual
source book of the musical, cultural and political life of Jamaica.
In the early 1980s as Jamaica was in the throws of political and gang violence Beth Lesser ventured where few other
dared and this book is never before seen record of the exciting, dangerous and vibrant world of Dancehall. Beth Lesserʼs
book tells this story from its roots to its heights. Living in Jamaica in the late 70s and early 80s she photographed and
documented a cultural explosion as producers, singers, DJs and soundsystems who all made a living out of the slums of
Kingston. With unprecedented access to the incredibly vibrant music scene

216 pages, 30 x 30 cm, paperback.
