“Inna De Yard” Movie about Reggae
April 30, 2019 § Leave a comment
A musical journey with Roots, Rock, and Reggae.
Reggae music was recently added to the list of international cultural treasures by Unesco.
Spend some time on this musical reunion with Rastafarian reggae legends, Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Jah9, Juddy Mowatt, and Cedric Myton (Congos), in their backyard, located in the panoramic green hills high above Kingston, Jamaica. Hang out with these veterans and novices, as they record an acoustic album, jam on brass instruments, accordion, acoustic guitar, and piano, prepare for a world tour, listen to vinyl records and smoke some ganja. From a variety of backgrounds (children of jewellery makers, fisherman, and descendants of slaves), many of them started singing in church at an early age. Although reggae music often has a positive vibe to it, the musicians talk about the history of Jamaica, poverty, religion, dishonest record labels, political unrest, and social injustices.
