The Story of Lover's Rock

Thurs, Dec. 10 @ 1pm - Bow Tie Chelsea - Q&A

loversrock300dpiLovers Rock, often dubbed 'romantic reggae' is a uniquely black British sound that developed in the late 70s and 80s against a backdrop of riots, racial tension and sound systems. Live performance, comedy sketches, dance, interviews and archive shed light on the music and the generation that embraced it. Lovers Rock allowed young people to experience intimacy and healing through dance- known as 'scrubbing'- at parties and clubs. This dance provided a coping mechanism for what was happening on the streets. Lovers Rock developed into a successful sound with national UK hits and was influential to British bands (Police, Culture Club, UB40) Directed by JMenelik Shabazz, 2011, 96mins, musical documentary, English.

But in the dog-eat-dog world where being Troy's girl buys her envy as well as status, social outsider Shaun becomes her only true friend. When Troy discards her, Layla is left in ruins.
