One of the most popular and influential music forms of the twentieth century, reggae has traveled the world spreading its message of social and spiritual awareness. Reggae’s popularity comes partially from its image and the power of its lyrics; but at its heart it is good time music, with a laid-back, funky beat that keeps your feet moving and your head bobbing. The culmination of a number of strands in Jamaican music, reggae has a rich history that reflects an African musical legacy blended with British, Irish and Spanish influences topped off with American pop and soul. • 1.
