Reggae-based musical collective Trensettahs Sound System are wholly dedicated to the cause on explosive new releases "La Fiebre" and the appropriately titled "Revolution".  Trensettahs Sound System was founded as 'a collective of Afro-futurists working to create and promote reggae music to fans all around the world.' With their prolific output and resounding art, the group achieve a cohesive, spiritual whole greater than the sum of it's parts while collaborating with artists and philosophies across the globe.

While most artists simply plan singles or albums, Trensettahs Sound System have planned an annual festival in Ethiopia, a collaborative album featuring artists from Jamaica, Ethiopia, Columbia and the U.S.A., as well as a 5-part docuseries that follows the collective to Columbia, Jamaica and the U.S.A. Thematically, Trensettahs Sound System resonates with social resistance and a reclamation of personal power.

Sizzla Kalonji is the most impactful singer in the Rastafarian movement. Sizzla is an international reggae star from Kingston Jamaica. He is one of the most commercially and critically successful contemporary reggae artists and is noted for his high number of releases.[1] As of 2022 he has released over 60 solo albums as well as 1000’s of singles and features. Sizzla is featured on 4 songs on the Black sounds of Freedom. There is a full album of Sizzla that trensettahs has produced titled, Repatriation Movement. Sizzla’s compound, Judgment Yard, is the focus of one of the episodes in the docuseries, Black Sounds of Freedom.

It is important to note, as we do consistently in the documentary, the reggae that we pursue is reggae that is the soundtrack to the Rastafarian movement.
