Queens Of Sound - A Herstory of Reggae and Dancehall explores the long neglected female side of Reggae and Dancehall music in Jamaica.

Three generations of women in the Jamaican music business tell us about their role in past and present, their first steps into the career, their struggle for acceptance in a male-dominated business, their life paths and big success. World-famous musicians such as Marcia Griffiths, Tanya Stephens, Sasha, Cecile, Chevelle Franklyn, Queen Ifrica, Macka Diamond and Lady G - just to name a few, as well as women behind the scenes, f.e. Barbara Makeda Blake Hannah (Rastafari activist, film-maker, author, journalist, broadcaster), Nordia Rose (hottest music video director in Jamaica), Jade Lee (artist management) or Sandra Joy Alcott (founder of JAFA – Jamaica Association of Female Artists), give us an understanding of Jamaica’s music scene from a female point of view. The documentary highlights via in-depth interviews and spectacular performances the social, economic, religious, textual and individual aspects of Reggae and Dancehall culture.

Queens Of Sound was mainly filmed in Kingston/Jamaica as well as at concerts in Austria and Italy.
