RadioIO Reggae MD
More informationReggae music emerged in the 60's in Jamaica and became a music genre that is wrapped in social and political consciousness. Reggae evolved from ska and rocksteady styles of music, and began making its way onto mainstream radio and music charts in the early seventies. As the format evolved, reggae continued to pull from R&B, jazz, calypso, Latin American music and Caribbean influences. The earliest reggae singles often featured a dub or instrumental track, often called "version" on the record label.
