Jammin' In Jamaica

A three-part series celebrating Jamaica's reggae roots.



DJ Chris Goldfinger journeys home to reason with the rastas and rock steady with the rude boys.

With Sunfest 97 sessions from Luciano; Ken Boothe and Alton Ellis; and a blessing from Burning Spear to mark the thirty-fifth anniversary of Jamaican independence.


Chris Goldfinger meets the DJs and dance-hall dons who are shaping the sound of the 90s reggae rhythms, and traces the toasting tradition back to U Roy and the early sound systems.

With live Sunfest sets from Lady Saw, Beenie Man, and King Yellow Man.
