The show proposes a chronological and thematic tour to present the sonorous and cultural universe of Jamaica, that surpasses the physical borders and becomes world influence and important point in the history of the music.
Jamaica is the cradle of important musical currents of the second half of the XVth century: Mento, ska, rosksteady, reggae, and dub are just some of the styles that emerge on the island.
The complex history extends beyond music, and its roots penetrate deeply into the days of enslavement of the black people, remitting the traditional forms of song and dance inherited from the colonization. Curated by Sébastien Carayol.
An exhibition conceived by the Cité de la musique - Philharmonie de Paris, produced and performed by Sesc São Paulo.
