DJ Ripley (aka Dr. Larisa Mann) on the Jamaican street dance (Episode 10)

DJ Ripley (aka Dr. Larisa Mann)

In this podcast DJ Ripley (aka Dr. Larisa Mann) draws on her experience as a DJ, ethnographer, and student of public policy to examine how the history and present-day cultures of Jamaican street dance challenge familiar conceptions of artistic control and cultural appropriation. Tracing out political, economic, and technological itineraries that traverse US-American and Jamaican music cultures, DJ Ripley offers a genealogy of distinct (and intertwined) remix cultures as they develop at the margins of liberal jurisprudence and outside corporate control.
