Today's Global Hit takes us to school...in Kingston, Jamaica. This is a Global Hit, so you know there's going to be some music. But the students at the Alpha Boys School learn more than Dancehall Theory and Advanced Reggae. The World's Marco Werman explains.
In a country often called "the loudest island in the world," some people are louder than others. This is the sound of Jamaica today. The music is called dancehall. Usually it's a rapper backed by massive beats, supplied by a DJ on a turntable.
