Reggae music is a genre of popular music that originated in Jamaica in the late 1960s. It is characterized by its use of a distinctive rhythmic pattern called the "skank", which emphasizes the off-beat, as well as its use of bass guitar, drums, and horns to create a rich and layered sound. Reggae music often features themes related to social and political issues, such as poverty, inequality, and revolution. It has influenced various genres of music, including rock, hip-hop, and electronic music, and has produced numerous iconic performers and songs. Today, reggae music remains a popular and influential genre in the music industry, with a growing global audience and fanbase.
