Reggae is a genre of music that emerged in Jamaica in the 1960s. It is also used to refer to the Jamaican diaspora and the contemporary popular music of the country. The genre got its name from the 1968 popular song "Do the Reggay" by Toots and the Maytals, which made it popular worldwide.
Reggae is believed to have evolved from Jamaican musical genres ska and rocksteady. It was also heavily influenced by Jazz, Rhythm and Blues, and mento, a form of Jamaican folk music. Reggae songs frequently deal with political issues and social commentary. It also has a deep connection with Rastafari, an Afrocentric religion.
The music is characterized by an offbeat rhythm and call-and-response patterns. Famous artists from the genre include Bob Marley (considered the biggest artist of the genre), Peter Tosh, and Jimmy Cliff.
