Made in Jamaica

The 'Made in Jamaica' Reggae Festival is linked to the 'Made in Jamaica' documentary by the French film director Jerome Laperrousaz. The Dutch première of this documentary took place in the end of 2006 (IDFA, Amsterdam). Click here for more info about the movie.

'Made in Jamaica' is a powerful portrait of the leaders of the reggae music Movement, and how Reggae has become a worldwide phenomenon. The film showcases performances by the best Reggae and Dance Hall artists ever assembled. From their native ghetto to international fame, 'Made in Jamaica' is the story of the artists who represent the Jamaican Dream.

A number of (main) artists who play in the documentary will come to Europe to tour in April/May 2007, to get the public to be part of the ultimate reggae experience. Put on your dancing shoes and come and dance on Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, Third World, Bunny Wailer & The Solomonic Reggaestra and Capleton with The David House Crew!

Line up

Bands:

 
Mystic Revelation of Rastafari (Jamaica)
The group was originally founded in the late sixties when Count Ossie and his drummers, up in Wareika Hills, teamed up with Cedric 'Im' Brooks. They were the pioneers of Nyabinghi drumming, a traditional style which evolved from West African Ashanti tradition.
 

 
Third World (Jamaica)
Third World was founded in 1974 with the equally talented singer Bunny Rugs Clarke and bass player Richard Daley. The band very quickly became one of Chris Blackwell's favourite bands, he signed them on his Island record label.
 

 
Bunny Wailer (Jamaica)
Bunny Wailer went to school with Bob Marley and became his half brother when their parents remarried with each other. In 1963, Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh formed the legendary group 'The Wailers'.
 

 
Capleton (Jamaica)
Also referred to as the 'Prophet', Capleton is considered one of the best 'conscious reggae' artists and reggae music deejays of his generation. On the Made in Jamaica Reggae Festival Capleton is performing with The David House Crew.
