#Bob #Marley, #Jimmy Cliff, and Prince Buster are notable contributors to #Reggae's popularity and success. Of course, Bob Marley became our best ambassador. Reggae includes two sub-genres, #Roots Reggae (the original reggae) and #Dancehall Reggae, which originated in the late 1970s. One of the main themes of traditional reggae has been social liberation. This has both political and religious aspects. Needless to say, Reggae is the fuel for the Rastafari Movement here in Jamaica and the world! It is said that Reggae is not only the precursor to the modern Jamaican style of Dub, but also to American Ska, Jambands, and British reggae-based bands, example #UB40. It is also a predecessor to the now popular Hip-Hop and Rap music although a very clear line can be drawn between the two. #Nowplaying, #music, #trending
