Reggae Music

“Reggae music” goes all the way back to Jamaica where it originated in the 1960’s. The term ‘reggae’ came into scene after the release of the popular hit by the ‘Toots and Maytals’ called “Do the Reggay”. Although the term is used widely to address popular Jamaican dance music, it genuinely consists of a particular style of music which was highly influenced by the traditional mento, American jazz & rhythm and blues as well as New Orleans R&B.

Reggae typically conveys news, social gossip and political comment. What sets a definitive difference with other types of music is the use of offbeat rhythms, staccato chords played by the guitar or piano. Its tempo is slower paced than Ska (the precursor to reggae) but faster paced than Rocksteady (A successor of ska and precursor to Reggae).

Some of the artists that brought the music to the global scene are Bob Marley, Jackie Jackson from the Toots and Maytals, Carlton Barrett, Lloyd Brevett from the Skatalites, Winston Grennan, Sly Dunbar and Anthony ‘’Benbow” Creary from The Upsetters.

Reggae reached its popularity after the 1960s and has evolved into numerous subgenres throughout South America and the UK. Reggaes popularity skyrocketed in Africa after Bob Marley visited Zimbabwe in 1980. It has also played its part in boosting the economy as it is one of the biggest money making sources in Jamaica.
