‘Dancehall: Rise Of Jamaican Dancehall Culture’ by Beth Lesser is perhaps the definitive story of that most elusive of artforms. Born in the ghettos of Jamaica, Dancehall’s roots are long and complicated, and Lesser takes us on a stunning voyage to outline what the music actually is, and importantly, where it has come from. Featuring truly stunning photography, this is a feast for fans of Jamaican music and beyond.

‘Dancehall: Rise Of Jamaican Dancehall Culture’ is out now from Soul Jazz publishing.
