The Rastafari sound: Jah, Ganja, Bob Marley and the roots of reggae

Love, peace & unity! The 1960s, despite the social changes, were awash in relaxing vibes. Consequently, ska also slowed down and established an easygoing vibe, with Afro-Caribbean rhythms and traditional mento. The result was first mentioned by name in the song "Do the Reggay", by Toots and the Maytals. The first real reggae song came from veteran Lee "Scratch" Perry with "People Funny Boy". Later, Perry worked on a minimalist alternative to reggae and founded dubstep.

Jamaica not only shaped the beginning of reggae but also fulfilled its spiritual destiny. Bob Marley brought global awareness of the Rastafari movement and reggae, in the process becoming its permanent iconic figure. When he died in 1981, the future of this sunwashed but deceptively serious genre was uncertain. Reggae, however, proved adaptable and took off in new directions with dubstep, ragga, lovers' rock, dancehall and reggaeton. In the summer, festivals flourish to the beat of massive sound systems around the world.
