Read about Reggae Music and Its Origins below...

From the beautiful music to the world-renowned festivals and lot more, let me take you on a musical journey.

Did you now that Reggae music was started on a small island in the Caribbean name Jamaica? Its a combination of Rocksteady and Ska Music.

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 Cliff, Bunny 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?

What Is Dancehall Music?, Where was this Genre of Dancehall Music originated?

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

The music got its name 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. 

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 year 2012 saw a number of chart-topping dancehall and reggae music's singles and riddims also known as juggling.
