Coolness

Reggae’s direct forefather is ska, an uptempo, rhythmic variation based on the New Orleans R&B Jamaican musicians heard broadcast from the US on their transistor radios. Relying on skittering guitar and syncopated rhythms, ska was their interpretation of R&B and it was quite popular in the early ’60s. However, during one very hot summer, it was too hot to either play or dance to ska, so the beat was slowed down and reggae was born.

I & I will change the mood!
