This jammin' documentary is for those who still believe that all reggae music sounds the same. With no narration, explanation of the philosphies behind reggae or Rasafarianism, and no titles to announce the acts the film is nothing more or less than a series of live concert clips from some of the world's hottest reggae artists as they perform at festivals in Australia, Jamaica, Japan and the US. Featured artists come from reggae sub-genres ranging from lovers-rock to dance hall and include Ziggy Marley, Burning Spear, Beres Hammond, Carlene Davis, Yami Bolo, the late Garnett Silk, Shaggy, Shinehead, Buju Banton and more.
