By Marvin Sterling
Sterling presents a nuanced ethnographic research of the ways in which many jap curious about reggae as musicians and dancers, and people deeply engaged with Rastafari as a religious perform, search to reimagine their lives via Jamaican tradition. He considers jap performances and representations of Jamaican tradition in golf equipment, competitions, and gala's; on web pages; and in music lyrics, track movies, reggae magazines, shuttle writing, and fiction. He illuminates problems with race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and sophistication as he discusses issues starting from the cultural capital that eastern dancehall artists amass through immersing themselves in dancehall tradition in Jamaica, manhattan, and England, to using Rastafari as a way of critiquing category distinction, consumerism, and the colonial pasts of the West and Japan. Encompassing the reactions of Jamaica’s artists to eastern appropriations of Jamaican tradition, in addition to the relative positions of Jamaica and Japan on this planet economic climate, Babylon East is an extraordinary ethnographic account of Afro-Asian cultural trade and international discourses of blackness past the African diaspora.
