Reggae music videos and live shows
Native to Jamaica, Reggae is a popular musical direction dating back as far as the very beginning of the 1970s. This sub-genre owes its popularity and worldwide recognition to such cult artists as Jimmy Cliff, Peter Tosh, and, surely, Bob Marley. Reggae developed from Jamaica roots music such as Rocksteady, Mento, and Ska and is believed to have an association with such African Jamaican religions as Rastafari and Kumina. The island itself was long under slavery and colonization. No wonder that Reggae music often speaks of struggle, social inequality, rebellion, and faith in better life.
