Jamaican music gets its own version of The Buena Vista Social Club, complete with legendary performers, unplugged roots music and a whole lotta of chillin’ in the yard.

Director Peter Webber (Girl with a Pearl Earring) filmed musicians Ken Boothe, Winston McAnuff, Kiddus I, Cedric Myton and others, in a house on a hill above Kingston. Bob Marley may have hit the big time overseas, but there were plenty of other Jamaican musicians who, while loaded with talent and locally popular, didn't make it internationally. For some, life and family got in the way, others were perhaps a little too fond of the 'erb. But they haven't given up on music, and when they get the call they head on over, more than ready to jam, creating a great new unplugged album. We're talking reggae, ska and rocksteady from the '60s and '70s, but it's never nostalgic – their music is vibrant and still full of relevance today.

An appealing blend of accessibly toe-tapping music and likeable characters.

A sunny, heart-felt reggae tribute.
