Dancehall Music Information

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. Key elements of dancehall music include its extensive use of Jamaican Patois rather than Jamaican standard English and a focus on the track instrumentals or "riddims.

The 90s without a doubt is considered to be the best era to date for Dancehall and Reggae Music.
