Always Together: Chinese-Jamaicans in Reggae Music

One of the reasons I love the Caribbean is that lots of people from lots of different places and cultures come together in small, tight spaces. And often in ways that are rarely known.

From the website for the movie Always Together: Chinese-Jamaicans in Reggae Music:

From the first Mento record ever recorded on the island to the continuing popularity of performers like Black Chiney today, Chinese-Jamaicans have played a tremendous but little-recognized role in the development and spread of Jamaican music.

Check out the trailer for the film. This looks amazing.
