Artists by Musical Genre

Reggae music first emerged in Jamaica in about 1968. The fruit of a medley of musical influences, the genre is linked, inextricably, to its country of origin: music is part of the fabric of everyday life in Jamaica. Since the charismatic Bob Marley shot to international fame in the mid-1970s, reggae has continued to draw audiences worldwide thanks to such artists as Burning Spear and Alpha Blondy.
