Reggae is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the 1960s and is a synthesis of Ska and Rocksteady. It also draws its inspiration from other styles of music such as; rhythm and blues(R&B), jazz and mento. Reggae is not just a music genre it is of paramount importance as it is a representation of Jamaican culture and their inspirations in true sense of the word. Thus, the genre has grown by leaps and bounds since its inception and has today developed into a global phenomenon.
