D.A.R.Y.L. has directed a fascinating new documentary looking into the appropriation of dancehall culture in Japan. In Japan you might think? Yes in Japan!
This first episode short film focuses on the key influences who, after discovering dancehall, made it their mission to create a bonafide subculture in their home country. Harnessing the spirit and attitude of Jamaican bashment culture, these pioneers worked tirelessly to create a homegrown movement which today not only thrives but is also recognised and respected in Jamaica and around the word.
