Reggae is a music genre first developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s. While sometimes used in a broader sense to refer to most types of Jamaican music, the term reggae moreproperly denotes a particular music style that originated following on the development of ska and rocksteady.
Reggae developed from ska, mento and R&B music in the 1960s.Early 1968 was when the first genuine reggae records were released: "Nanny Goat" by Larry Marshall and "No More Heartaches" by The Beltones.
The Wailers, a band started by Bob Marley, PeterTosh and Bunny Wailer in 1963, are perhaps the most recognised band that made the transition through all three stages of early Jamaican popular music: ska, rocksteady and reggae. Othersignificant reggae pioneers include Prince Buster, Desmond Dekkerand Jackie Mittoo.
The 1972 film The Harder They Come, starring Jimmy Cliff, generated considerable interest and popularity for reggaein the United States, and Eric Clapton's 1974 cover of the Bob Marley song "I Shot the Sheriff" helped bring reggae into the mainstream.
By the mid 1970s, reggae was getting radio play inthe UK on John Peel's radio show, and Peel continued to play reggae on his show throughout his career. What is called the "Golden Age of Reggae" corresponds roughly to the heyday of rootsreggae.
Reggae began to enjoy a revival in the UK that continued into the 1980s, exemplified by groups like Steel Pulse, Aswad, UB40, and Musical Youth.
In our days, reggae is very normal inall of countries.
