I am going to share a secret with you about the history of Reggae Music. I think now is the opportune time as I think you are at a place that you can handle it. This genre did not originate with Bob Marley nor his world renown song One Love. Reggae music is a soulful entertainment in Jamaica. It expresses in words the pain, struggle, hope and emotion that is felt by the average person. Reggae music is recognized by its lament-like chanting and emphasizes the syncopated beat. It is distinguishable from other genres in the heavy use of the Jamaican vernacular and the African nyah-bingi drumming style. Reggae began to rise to international acclaim as the s progressed. The movie soundtrack consisted of only reggae hits; this contributed in elevating the music to a internal platform. Marley was not only a Reggae singer, but a committed Rastafarian and a political activist.
The term also denotes the modern popular music of Jamaica and its diaspora. Reggae spread into a commercialized jazz field, being known first as "rudie blues", then "ska", later "blue beat", and "rock steady". The immediate origins of reggae were in ska and rocksteady; from the latter, reggae took over the use of the bass as a percussion instrument. Reggae is deeply linked to Rastafari , an Afrocentric religion which developed in Jamaica in the s, aiming at promoting Pan Africanism. The musician becomes the messenger, and as Rastafarians see it, "the soldier and the musician are tools for change. Stylistically, reggae incorporates some of the musical elements of rhythm and blues , jazz , mento a celebratory, rural folk form that served its largely rural audience as dance music and an alternative to the hymns and adapted chanteys of local church singing ,  calypso,  and also draws influence from traditional African folk rhythms. One of the most easily recognizable elements is offbeat rhythms; staccato chords played by a guitar or piano or both on the offbeats of the measure. The tempo of reggae is usually slower paced than both ska and rocksteady. The genre of reggae music is led by the drum and bass. The bass sound in reggae is thick and heavy, and equalized so the upper frequencies are removed and the lower frequencies emphasized.
