Reggae was propelled globally by Reggae legend the late Robert Nesta Marley aka Bob Marley with the help of the Wailers and the I Threes.

The origin of the word "reggae" is open to debate. 

The foundation of Jamaica's music was laid in the 1960s

Many people considered Bob Marley to be exclusively responsible for the popularity of reggae worldwide, but many other artists such as Jimmy CliffBunny Wailer and Peter Tosh, were integral to the spread of the genre.

Have you ever ask or wonder who is the founding father of Reggae music? or What is the origin of Reggae?

Dancehall Music Genre

Dancehall Reggae Music is one of Jamaica's greatest export to the world.  But, bet you did not know that there was a difference between Dancehall and Reggae music?

Dancehall Music got it's named (Up for debate) after Jamaican dance halls in which popular Jamaican recordings were played by local sound systems.

Dancehall Music (also known as "Bashment") is a genre of Jamaican popular music that originated in the late 1960s to early 1970s.  

Initially, dancehall was a more sparse version of reggae than the roots style, which had dominated much of the 1970s.

Dancehall Music genre was originated back in the late 1970s but did not make it mainstream until in the 1980s.

Artists such as Yellowman, Shabba Ranks, Mad Cobra, Sister Nancy, Buju Banton, Super Cat, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Sean Paul are just a few names who helped to propelled Dancehall Music to the world.

In the mid-1980s, digital instrumentation became more prevalent, changing the sound considerably, with digital dancehall (or "ragga") becoming increasingly characterized by faster rhythms.

This era saw the rise of dancehall music, sound system, sound clash and street parties.  But this was also the era when some megastar rose to fame across the globe.

The 1990s dancehall riddims are consider to be best years for dancehall music. Most of the riddims are classified as gold and are often remake in the 2000s.

The Revival of Reggae music

The late 1980s into the early 2000s, Dancehall music ruled and Reggae music was pushed unto the back burner. But in 2013 several artists came together and started what was termed as a Reggae Music Revival.

The crop of artists who started the Reggae music revival is Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, Protoje, Jah9, Keznamdi, Dre Island, Mortimer, Koffee, Kelissa, Lila Ike and Sevana.
