Legends Of Ska celebrates the music, culture and enthusiasm of Jamaica as a newly independent nation more than 50 years ago. This documentary explores the history of original Jamaican ska and the significance of the island’s musical impact. Ska was Jamaica’s first popular musical export, which sprang from the jazz clubs and dance halls of Kingston to spawn a worldwide dance craze.
Without Ska, there is no Reggae.
$5 ($4 + $1 agent fee)
