Reggae: Reggae is a music genre first developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s. Reggae is based on a rhythmic style characterized by accents on the off-beat, known as the skank. Reggae is normally slower than ska but faster than rocksteady. One of the main individuals who progressed this genre was Count Ossie. Bob Marley is said to have claimed that the word reggae came from a Spanish term for "the king's music"
