Queens of Sound

Queens Of Sound documents 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 past and present roles, their first steps on the way to success and their struggle for acceptance in a male-dominated business. World-famous musicians, such as Marcia Griffiths, Tanya Stephens, Lady Saw, Sasha, Cecile and Lady G – to name just a few, as well as women behind the scenes, for example Dr. Carolyn Cooper (UWI), Barbara Blake Hannah (Rastafari activist), Nordia Rose (music video director) or Sandra Joy Alcott (founder of the Jamaica Association of Female Artists), give us the female point of view on Jamaica‘s Reggae and Dancehall culture.
