Official Trailer: Always Together: Chinese-Jamaicans In Reggae from Always Together on Vimeo.

If you are a casual fan of ska and/or reggae music, people of Chinese descent may not be the first image that comes to mind. However, if you become a fan and start to investigate deeper, you’ll discover that Chinese-Jamaicans played a major role in the production and creation of some of the most influential music not only in Jamaica, but eventually around the world. Always Together: Chinese-Jamaicans In Reggae takes a wide look at some of the names you may have only seen in passing in album liner notes or in magazines and blogs, and gets in-depth about the role people like Leslie Kong, Tom Wong, and Byron Lee had on the creation of what may be some of your favorite songs and albums.
