"Rocksteady: The Roots of Reggae" [Keeling's Carribean Showcase]
Rocksteady: The Roots of Reggae
(Dir. Stascha Bader, 2009, 95 min.)
The documentary film "Rocksteady: The Roots of Reggae" chronicles the short history of Jamaican Rocksteady music while highlighting its influences on modern Jamaican tunes. Considered a transitional genre between ska and reggae music, Rocksteady enjoyed a short period of popularity from 1966 until 1970 when it was overshadowed by reggae's similar heavy bass sound.
Most Sundays, Keeling Beckford of Keeling's Reggae Music and Video presents films that deal with various aspects of Carribean culture at home and in diaspora. December's film is "Rocksteady: The Roots of Reggae". It also will show on Sunday Dec. 13th, 20th, & 27th at 7:30pm.
