Scene Unseen

Dancehall in Japan

Discover more about the unexpected success of dancehall and reggae in Japan.

In the first film of a trilogy exploring music scenes around the world, we investigate the continuing, somewhat unlikely success of dancehall and reggae in Japan.

The principle characters include Yokohama’s soundsystem kings Mighty Crown who in many ways paved the way for the scene as it is today.

Batty Bom Bom is one of the scene’s most well known dancers and is a former winner of the prestigious annual Dancehall Queen competition.

The Illmatic Gyalz don’t only teach newcomers to the scene how to do the dance moves, they also educate them on Jamaican culture and language.

For all, dancehall is a fundamental part of their life and the music, the style and the culture runs through them. Whilst outsiders may find their fascination bizarre, the scene is as energetic and vibrant as anywhere on the planet.

This gallery focuses on the dancehall crews of Tokyo and Yokohama, including Japanese artists, DJs, MCs and of course, the dancers also known as dancehall queens.

People who act like it’s a POCs responsibility to be cordial and composed when interacting with racists instead of it being a person’s responsibility to not be a fucking shit-stain racist baffle me

everyone you’ve ever loved has said some problematic shit: a novel 

you have also said some problematic shit: the sequel

having said problematic shit does not necessarily make you or anyone else a bad person, just be aware of it, don’t say it again, and don’t make fucking excuses for people who continue to say problematic shit: the thrilling conclusion

some people feel pressured by labels, and therefor don’t like to label their sexuality

some people find comfort in labels, and labeling their sexuality has given them a feeling of belonging

both are completely fine

i’m not sure why some people still can’t comprehend this

The Haitian Revolution - A short Reading List (of Anglophone scholars)

"More than two hundred years after Haitian independence was declared on January 1, 1804, it remains a challenge to perceive the spirit that fueled the first abolition of slavery in the New World and gave rise to the second independent nation in the Americas. As recently as ten years ago, the Haitian Revolution (1789-1804), which created “Haiti” out of the ashes of French Saint Domingue, was the least understood of the three great democratic revolutions that transformed the Atlantic world in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. That is no longer true. In the decade since the 2004 bicentennial, a genuine explosion of scholarship on the Saint-Domingue revolution has profoundly enriched our memory of what Hannah Arendt, in her comparative study of the American and French revolutions, called “the revolutionary tradition and its lost treasure”. It is not clear to what extent this development has affected broader public understandings of the Haitian predicament, however."

By Professor Malick W. Ghachem for the John Carter Brown Library online exposition: “The Other Revolution: Haiti 1789-1804.”

* Much more scholarship could have been included in this list. To find more monographs and articles on the Haitian Revolution or, for a general reading list on Haiti, see here and here.
