    States, and Africa.

  • Reggae’s direct origins are in the ska and rocksteady of 1960s Jamaica, strongly influenced by traditional Caribbean mento and calypso music, as well as American jazz
    and rhythm and blues.

  • Bob Marley, who popularized reggae worldwide, recorded rocksteady records early in his career. By the late 1960s, reggae was getting radio play in the United Kingdom on John Peel’s radio show and has remained the most dominant genre since
