Japanese Dancehall. Jamaica's music in the East. Since the past few years Dancehall has become a major player in the music scene in Japan.

It is said that Japan caught the dancehall vibes in the rise of Bob Marley's worldwide popularity and has been harbouring a love for this contagious sound ever since.

It's no surprise that this genre of music is gaining lots of fans in Japan. Since 1985 they have been hosting an annual reggae festival called "Reggae Japan Splash".

The godfathers of japanese dancehall sound are Mighty Crown, a Tokahama born sound system.

Mighty Crown was inspired by the legendary sound systems like Killamanjaro and Saxon. They were the first non-Jamaican sound system to win the Irish and Chin world clash in 1999. This is a competition where selectors compete to see who have the best and most exclusive selection of dancehall and reggae songs.
There are nightclubs in Japan that host regular dancehall nights. Some of the Japanese even go as far as dressing up and acting like Jamaicans.

Junko Kudo was the first non-Jamaican to win the dancehall queen title in Montego Bay , Jamaica 2002.

This is a competition where women showcase their skills in the hottest, most outrageous and the best dancehall moves.
