How representative is We the Ragamuffin of Peckham?
The whole film was shot on location in Peckham, but the Ragamuffin culture -the current version of reggae at the time - was inspired by Jamaica. If you listen to the music, you can hear all kinds of beats that hearken back to Africa. But the artists featured in the film developed a distinctive crossover style, like Mikey General who sings the main song. It's a uniquely British black Carribean–inspired music scene.
