Dancehall Queens

Queens of Sound– A Herstory of Reggae and Dancehall
Dir: Sandra Krampelhuber

This film explores the long neglected female side of Reggae and Dancehall music in Jamaica. Three generations of women in the Jamaican music business tell us about their roles, their first steps into the career, their struggle for acceptance in a male-dominated business, their life paths and success.

There are several showings during BHM. For this and other BHM arts events, click here.
