Founding Father Of Reggae Music
Founding Father Of Reggae Music - The origin of the word "reggae"
is open to debate. Reggae was born out of rock-steady music.
Reggae was started in the late 1960s. Some of the first reggae artists are, Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, as well as Jimmy Cliff, Toots and the Maytals, Steel Pulse, Lee Scratch Perry, Dennis Brown and Black Uhuru.
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.
It was popularized by Bob Marley. He took this music originating out of Jamaica and created an image for it aboard.
such as "Get Up, Stand Up", "Buffalo Soldiers", "War", "Turn Your
Lights Down", "One Love", "No Woman no Cry" "Waiting in Vain" and "Is
This Love" are like reggae anthem worldwide.
Reggae was the
direct decent of rocksteady, most Jamaican did not like the name and
thus an artists by the name of Morgan used his Organ and Guitar to
create the first reggae riddim.
The first reggae album was called "Do The Reggae" by the Maytals. It was released in 1968.
the 1970s reggae took another direction called Toasting. This was
discovered by King Tubbys. Toasting is the Singing or Deejaying over a
dancehall or reggae riddim.
The first Toasting record was called "Wake the Town", done by Tubbys and U-Roy.
Prime minister of Jamaica, Edward Seaga formed the first Record label
in the 1950s. It was called West Indian Records Limited (WIRL).
The first Disc Jockey to make reggae riddims records was Rudolph "Ruddy" Redwood in 1967. In 1972 reggae became a staple on western radio stations thanks to the film "The Harder They Come", staring reggae superstar Jimmy Cliff.
So the biggest question still remains, Who is the Founding Father of Reggae Music.
- Bob Marley?
- Toots and the Maytals?
- Lee Scratch Perry?
- King Tubbys?
- DJ Morgan?
- Peter Tosh
The question is open.
