However, until the early seventies, reggae was virtually unknown in most of the world. Reggae originated in relative isolation in Jamaica in the late 1960s, and when it was first heard in Europe and North America, it sounded truly revolutionary. It was a completely new sound that changed the course of music almost as much as rock ‘n roll had done a decade earlier. However, reggae might not have caught on like a wildfire around the world had it not been introduced by an extraordinary man, who was both an extremely charismatic performer and one of the greatest singers and songwriters who ever lived. His name was, of course, Bob Marley. Marley died young, at the age of 36 in 1981, yet over the course of a relatively short career that lasted less than two decades, with only eight years as an internationally charting artist, he became a household name around the world. So how did such a startlingly original form of music, and such a startingly original musician and performer, emerge at the same time and in the same place—a small Caribbean island roughly the same size as Cyprus or New York City, with a population of less than two million people at the time Marley grew up? And how did this form of music and this performer manage to take the world by storm? These are the questions that we’ll discuss in this blog. SYNCOPATION The many music styles in Jamaica from which reggae arose include mento, calypso, jazz, rhythm and blues shuffle, Nyabingi music, and ska. Ska emerged in Jamaica in the late fifties, and is a dance music characterized by a quarter note walking bassline, the instantly recognizable guitar and piano accents on all upbeats, jazz-influenced horn riffs, and a kick drum accent on the third beat of the four-beat bar. It became the popular music amongst young people in Jamaica after the country gained independence from, British rule in 1962. In the mid-sixties, ska transformed into rocksteady, which slowed down the beat, and laid the accents on two and four. From this, it was a relatively minor step towards reggae, which slows down the beat even more, and keeps the accents on two and four, usually played by guitar and/or keyboard. Unusually, the snare accents the third beat, suggesting half time. The most common reggae drum rhythm is called ‘one drop,’ because it has only one kick in each bar. In a reversal of the emphasis on the one in funk, the kick on the first beat is left out. Instead, the kick, like the snare, only accents the third beat. As reggae musicians like to put it: play three beats and only suggest the fourth. The ‘steppers’ reggae rhythm is a variation, with a four-on-the-floor kick. ❤️My Favorite Plugins:
