Jamaica is known for its music. Reggae has become the cornerstone music for relaxing and having fun. It is the music that everyone can feel anywhere in the world. In its rhythms, no matter the message, is always inspirational toward hope. Music is a universal language that communicates with out insult. Simple beats and tones calm the mind to receive its message. Music carries a message in a way that no one else can. Music is like a key. It opens the
doors of the mind to receive. There are many genres of music, many messages,
but the genre of music I am going to tell you about is Reggae Music. Birthed
out of a strong spiritual place of heart, its message began, speaking of love,
hope, tolerance and world peace and standing up in protest and rebellion to
anything less. Reggae Classic makers like Bob Marley and Marcia Griffiths,
Luciano, Robert Nesta, Burning Spear, Morgan Heritage, Peter Tosh, Judy
Mowatt, John Holt, Lucky Dube, Joseph Hill and Culture, just to name a few;
their sounds give life to the name Reggae Music, with a spirit of fun, change
and freedom. It’s no surprise that reggae music was first developed in the
late 1960s. When is often thought of as Jamaican music and is often
associated with the Rastafari Movement, Reggae may be felt by people of
different cultural back grounds. It makes us all need to dance, let go and be
free, though it messages tough many serious issues, including faith, love,
relationships, poverty, injustice and other broad social issues.
The word reggae has many different suggestions to how the music was named,
from ragged clothes to reggae coming from a Spanish term for “the king’s
music”. Although its influence comes from a mix of traditional African,
Caribbean and Rhythm and Blues, Reggae owes its direct origins to the
progressive development of Ska and Rocksteady in 1960s Jamaica.
The music of Reggae is so universal that it can interpret any song, or should
I say, almost any song may be performed in a reggae style. Reggae is a music
that inspires understanding, its lessons of express social criticism, but the
criticism is more of a cry for justice and peace, although other reggae songs
discuss lighter, more personal subjects, such as love, sex and socializing.
Some reggae lyrics attempt to raise the political consciousness of the
audience, such as by criticizing society’s materialism or by informing the
listener about controversial subjects such as aids awareness. There are many
artists whoever have a spiritual message of God and his love. Every time you here
the word Jah, for Jehovah, Reggae music is speaking of God.
There are several subgenres in reggae music. I view them as dimensions; roots
reggae, dub, lovers rock, and dancehall. Roots reggae was born in the 70s and
the name given to a spiritual type of music whose lyrics are predominantly in
praise of God (Jah), resistance to poverty and government oppression.
Burning Spear, Bob Marley’s and Peter Tosh’s songs may be called roots reggae.
Dub involves extensive remixing of recorded material, and particular
emphasis is placed on the drum and bass line.
Lovers Rock was born in South London in the mid-1970s, and is produced for a
smoother, more commercial sound, with more apolitical lyrics. Hip Hop and Rap
are not actually born from reggae, but definitely related to the reggae in
the same messages, same race of people and same inspirations of rhythm and
blues and African music. The dancehall genre was developed around 1980, with
exponents such as Shabba Ranks it involves a deejay singing and rapping or
toasting over raw and fast rhythms. Reggaeton is a form became popular with
Latino youth in the early 1990s. It blends Reggae and Dancehall with Latin
USA genres such as Bomba and Plenda, as well as hip hop. Reggae rock
combines fusion and elements of reggae and rock music. Most of these
different levels of Reggae music are music you can dance to and feel inside
you, no matter whoever you are.
