80s Reggae Riddims, The Birth Of Real Reggae Music

80s Reggae Riddims - These beats came out of Jamaica in the 1980s and are still considered to be the best years in Jamaica's music history.

The dominant genre leading into the 80s was called Ska/Rocksteady.   Artiste such as Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer and Toots and The Maytals are said to be responsible for introducing Reggae Music to the world.
