Dancehall in Japan. A short mini documentary from the Scene Unseen project at #ListenForYourself.

There are two other films right now: one about Indie music in Mexico, and another about Electronic Music in India. They are dope.

There has been big Japanese attendance at reggae/dancehall festivals for well over twenty years. How that particular connection got started is something I've always wondered, but so far at least it seems to be staying solid.

Harlem Nightclub in Shibuya has a soundcloud page. It seemed to be the place to go to hear hip hop and reggae when I was visiting the city back in 2005.
