The reggae-Rasta-riddim complex expanded to full blown dub poetry, which inspired Tony Wilson's to create a sequence to Mikey Smith's "Roots” for his dance-work Dance Jamaica (1988).

The NDTC-Cuban-Connection continued with the creation of Eduardo Rivero-Walker's Tribute (1995) to music of reggae icons Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff. The programme note read:
Reggae is a music of profound significance to Caribbean peoples. In particular, it is the youth of the Caribbean who see in reggae their reason for living, their happiness and their frustrations. Born in Jamaica, this rhythm is an element of cohesion and cultural identification between the peoples of the English-speaking Caribbean. The most representative author and singer was Bob Marley who is seen as the most prestigious in the Caribbean, Africa and Europe.

NDTC kept abreast with the ever-changing landscape of Jamaican contemporary popular music which led to the making of Bujurama (1996). This was a natural occurrence for Nettleford who pioneered works to reggae music from the 70s inspired by Jimmy Cliff (Tribute to Cliff), Bob Marley (Court of Jah) and Toots Hibbert (Backlash). In Bujurama he revisited his contemporary ‘roots’ being inspired by the conscious lyrics of reggae/dancehall frontliner Buju Banton. The work made use of Banton's “Untold Stories”, “Not An Easy Road” and “Champion". Jamaica Gleaner writer Justin Whyte wrote:
It was not a transformation of the dancehall, instead it was a skillful re-enactment of the beauty there is in our music and carefully contrived movements. Therefore, it was of little wonder that the audience interrupted intermittently with wild applause, suggesting satisfaction and approval.
