Scene Unseen - Episode 1 - Dancehall in Japan {Video}

In their brand new series, Scene UnseenBose have been traveling the world to explore a bunch of music scenes you probably wouldn't expect to exist. Scenes like Japan's thriving – and somewhat unlikely – dancehall and reggae subculture, which is the focus of this first episode.

The principle characters include Yokohama's soundsystem kings Mighty Crown who in many ways paved the way for the scene as it is today.

Batty Bom Bom is one of the scene's most well known dancers and is a former winner of the prestigious annual Dancehall Queen competition.

The Illmatic Gyalz don't only teach newcomers to the scene how to do the dance moves, they also educate them on Jamaican culture and language.

For all, dancehall is a fundamental part of their life and the music, the style and the culture runs through them. Whilst outsiders may find their fascination bizarre, the scene is as energetic and vibrant as anywhere on the planet.
