Beschreibung

"Sound Clash" is the first in-depth look at Jamaican dancehall music and culture, a feisty and dynamic music featuring bawdy "sound clashes" in which DJs battle to win the glory of the dance hall. This is the first accessible book on a music form that is drawing more and more attention in the United States.

Zusammenfassung
Cooper also demonstrates the ways in which the language of dancehall culture, often devalued as mere 'noise,' articulates a complex understanding of the border clashes which characterize Jamaican society, and analyzes the sound clashes that erupt in the movement of Jamaican dancehall culture across national borders.
