Dancehall Music-1980’s

  • Dancehall music had its genesis in the political turbulence of the late
    1970s and became Jamaica’s dominant music in the 1980s and ’90s.

  • ‘Dancehall’ is named after Jamaican ‘dance halls’ in which popular Jamaican recordings were played by local sound systems. They began in the late 1940s among people from the inner city of Kingston, who were
    not able to participate in dances uptown.

  • Today it is both a musical genre and dance style with a modern , wild
    daring phenomenon.
