DANCEHALL FILM – “HIT ME WITH MUSIC” TO BE FEATURED AT WE-BEAT FESTIVAL IN TRINIDAD!

By Cecelia Campbell-Livingston—–

Hit Me With Music, a documentary on Jamaican dancehall music, will be featured at the annual WeBeat Festival, scheduled for June 2-7 in Trinidad and Tobago.

According to the guardian.co.tt website, the documentary is part of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival and bpTT Community Cinergy series of film screenings.

VYBZ KARTEL… is in the film as a modern pioneer

 

Hit Me With Music explores various facets of dancehall culture, including feuds between leading artists, skin bleaching, and the controversial Daggering dance.

Modern dancehall pioneers, Yellowman and the late dancer Bogle, are in the film, as well as Elephant Man, Mavado and Vybz Kartel.

Released last year, Hit Me With Music has been screened in North America and Europe film festivals to good response.
