Jazzwad: What Makes it Dancehall?

This is the longest video so far (at over an hour) from Reggae and Dancehall Vault in this series where Noah Powa interviews important dancehall personalities. Powa interviews producer Jazzwad who explains everything from how Reggaeton was born from Shabba’s “Dem Bow” to why trap dancehall should be called something different than dancehall. It is a fascinating conversation for anyone who cares about the music and where it is going. Jazzwad drops jewels and illustrates his ideas by having Powa play certain songs.
