Jamaica Jamaica Music

Although dated, the book is one of the earliest scientifically collected groupings of elements that made up Jamaican music at the time. The museum documents the history of music in Jamaica, from its origins to the present day. Here is the rich history behind it, including the origins of jazz, blues, reggae, hip-hop, rock, jazz and blues.

Mento, possibly derived from the old Spanish mentar mention, is a term normally applied to profane Jamaican traditional music, but it can be said to be similar to the Trinidadian calypso. Mento was the sound of rural Jamaica in the 1940s and drew on many styles of Jamaican folk music. It began as music from slave plantations and, with its very primitive instrumentation with the banjo (often predominant) and the better known calypsos (music), is one of the most popular forms of "Jamaican folk music," which has little commercial appeal and is more developed than its cousin from Trinidad and Tobago. Dub poetry is another form of performance poetry, which consists of songs, music and dance and originated in Jamaica in the 1970s.

Jamaican music died out and changed again in the 1970s, when a new, sucking rhythm called reggae reached Kingston. This new sound of Jamaica owes as much to the music of Trinidad and Tobago as to the dancehall, and it continues to this day, with many different styles of music such as dub, dubstep, jukebox music and just a few, I would say.

The spread of Rastafari in urban Jamaica in the 1960s changed the Jamaican music scene, which included drums played at ground ceremonies and led to today's pop music. Reggae has grown into an extraordinarily rich music culture, and reggae has captured people's collective consciousness most strongly, becoming a symbol of what many consider the heart of Jamaican music cultures. It reflects in particular the growing influence of Jamaica's cultural and ethnic diversity, as well as the cultural diversity of Trinidad and Tobago.

Rock'n'Steady lasted only a few years, but throughout the 20th century. This gave rise to a new, mediated Jamaican genre of popular music. The bridge between ska and reggae was the first attempt to blend the sounds of two of Jamaica's most popular music genres, rock and hip-hop. The new sound preceded the rain and reflected the island's physical independence from England and the rise of the Rastafarians.

The reputation - and response style - of singing, so common in West African music, is reflected in many genres of Jamaican music, and is the culmination of the drinking that was a precursor to rap music. Even the language of African-descent Jamaicans reflected this in their music, much of which is sung in the languages of their native peoples, such as English, French, Spanish and Spanish. Additional material will be presented at Maranhao, the first reggae museum outside Jamaica. Here too, baccra music and Hindu compositions are included on CD, often referred to by Jamaicans as "coolie music."

Like many African beats, reggae is characterized by a heavy, backward-beating rhythm known as a heartbeat, which became popular worldwide through its king Bob Marley. Kinama's distinctive drum style has become a distinctive Jamaican rhythm that can be heard in ska, rock steady and reggae. His distinctive shuffling beat was strongly identified with the sound popularized by groups like BobMarley and the Wailers.

Jazz is also a popular form of music in Jamaica and many well-known jazz musicians come from Jamaica, such as John Coltrane, Billie Holiday and Joe Louis Armstrong. Reggae spread in the United Kingdom in the late 1960s and early 1970s, where native-born Brits like Bob Marley and the Wailers, as well as Jamaican immigrants, founded the "Reggae" movement that spawned the likes of the Rolling Stones, R & B, hip-hop, rock'n "roll, and other genres. Consider Jamaican music in the early 20th century, before Jamaicans settled in significant numbers (see p. 457). Jamaica's version of rock'n'roll, called ska, with its heavy, backward rhythm, began in Kingston, Jamaica, in the mid-1960s.

In the 1960s Jamaica had an emerging record industry and popular music scene, and ska combined traditional mento with boogie-woogie, which was hugely popular in Jamaica at the time. After the arrival of rock'n'roll in the US, Jamaican dance music, skas, was developed by musicians involved in swing and R & B. By the end of 1973, a dub form, mixed with a mixture of hip-hop, reggae, dubstep and other genres, had established itself as a popular music form.
