Episode one (of six) in director Howard Johnson's Channel Four documentary series Deep Roots Music - entitled "Revival" - provides viewers with a dazzling first-time introduction to the music and dance of Jamaica, and reflects on the evolution on such slave-introduced musical genres as mento, burru, poco and kumina into contemporary ska dance music. In this installment, Johnson also examines how calypso and traditional Jamaican folk music kept Jamaican culture per se alive, and how many revivalist churches interpolate a blend of Christian and indigenous African themes into their services. Musicians who appear in this segment include Don Drummond, Jimmy Cliff, Jimmy Riley and Toots and the Maytals. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Musicians who appear in this episode include Jack Ruby Hi-Power, U Roy, Duke Reid and Prince Buster and the Skatalites. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
