Reggae is one of the most cultural music genres in the world. It emerged in Jamaica in the 1960s thanks to the growth of ska and rocksteady.
The switch to Reggae style was thanks to Bunny Lee, who was a big highlight at the time when he released the two hit singles titled, "Say What You're Saying" (1967), by Clancy Eccles, and "People Funny Boy". (1968) by Lee "Scratch" Perry.
Also, it's impossible not to remember the legendary Bob Marley when talking about reggae. The artist was born on February 6, 1945 in Nine Mile. Three years after his death he was awarded the "Third World Medal of Peace" by ONU.
