Reggae is a music genre first developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s. Reggae is often used to refer to most types of Jamaican music. However, the term reggae denotes a particular style of music that came after ska and rocksteady. Reggae is based on a rhythm style that is characterized by regular chops on the off-beat, known as the skank. The tempo is generally slower than that found in ska and rocksteady. Reggae usually has accents on the 2nd and 4th beat in each bar, there being four beats in a bar. Reggae is often associated with the Rastafari movement, an influence on many prominent reggae musicians from its inception. The lyrics of reggae songs generally deal with many subjects, including faith, love, relationships, poverty, injustice and other broad social issues. Reggae is feel-good music.

Dancehall is a very popular type of music that was developed in Jamaica in the late 1970s. It was introduced as a more sparse and less political and religious variant of reggae than the roots style that had dominated much of the 1970s. In the mid-1980s, digital instrumentation became more prevalent, changing the sound considerably, with digital dancehall (or “ragga”) becoming increasingly characterized by faster rhythms with little connection to earlier reggae rhythms. Modern dancehall is also known as bashment. The popularity of dancehall has spawned dance moves that help to make parties and stage performances more energetic. Dancehall is high-energy and fun music. Check out Dancehall Wiki for more information.
