A house filled with old vinyls perches on the hilltops of Kingston, surrounded by the ancient and impressive Jamaican scenery. Its terrace overlooking the hills. We hear the sound of percussion, a few guitar chords, brass and piano. Reggae vocals slice through the air, soaring into the mountains and setting Jamaica alight with the music that has made it famous across the world.
On this very terrace, legendary voices of reggae unite: Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton, The Viceroys and Judy Mowatt. They have known each other forever, and the golden age of reggae has a lot to thank them for. They sang with the greats in the backyards of the ghettos, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff.
Now, these legendary musicians want to return to the musical, spiritual and political roots of their art and pass them on to younger generations.
