Rebel Salute - 11th Anniversary

Another DVD from the Rebel Salute series, this one being the 11th Anniversary special which took place in January 2004. The Rebel Salute festivals take place yearly in Jamaica, and are organised by Tony Rebel, with the purpose of supporting conscious reggae and dancehall within Jamaica and promoting this to the rest of the world. Featured artists include John Holt, Culture, Ken Boothe and The Mighty Diamonds. This year also stood out with a special performance by Junior Byles. This was the first time this artist had performed live for many years, due to problems with his mental health. The DVD is also interspersed with commentary from Tony Rebel, who provides interesting information on the history of the festival and further illustrates the positive messages the festival tries to forward. Well worth checking out.
