Where Did Reggae Come from Anyway?
Reggae is said to have originated from Jamaica in the 1960s and it is believed that there were a number of physical and cultural stimuli that brought it forth. The majority of people believe that reggae was the Jamaican style of a mix of traditional mento and American rhythm and blues and jazz music. This article on Miami University’s website says that mentor was the first music discovered and actually recorded from Jamaica, traceable back to the 1950s, which makes perfect sense, but then again that can’t be 100% true, because it has its own distinct signature. As a matter of fact, you can always recognize reggae by the distinct counterpoint between the bass and the downbeat of the drum, and it usually has a distinct offbeat rhythm section too.
Wikipedia suggests that reggae music evolved in stages. First ‘Rudie Blues’, then ‘Ska’, then ‘Blue Beat’, and last ‘Rock Steady, before finally being referred to as reggae, which apparently was the Jamaicans taking over ska music adding bass to the beats. So who’s story is right? They all are. Reggae was an inevitable fact of life because it’s simply the way people feel around all these stimuli when they are free to express it the way they want with no holding back. So, reggae did have rhythm and blues, jazz, ska, and mento influences, but it also evolved into what it is today, which Rastafarai and anyone else that can see and hear reggae music long enough to see it at face value will tell you is a medicine.
And here’s why…
This debate article written on the Dredd Library’s website points out that reggae music is believed to be the Jamaican people’s way of fighting the war by letting their feelings out in the music when something is oppressing them. Jamaica has been through a lot. From slavery to fighting, to riots, and other kinds of social unrest and reggae is the Jamaican people’s way of crying out against the oppression, and letting their voice and prayers be heard by the rest of the world…
