Carrying the Swing

2009 Rated NR 50m

Exploring the bond between unlikely musical sister locations Jamaica and Bristol, England, this documentary follows Caribbean immigrants arriving in Bristol in the 1960s and their reggae influence that has survived to this day. Interviews with musicians significant to this period shed light on the cultural exchange, and the program examines trends such as jungle-style reggae, which evolved in Bristol and then returned to the sunny island.
