Reggae music, a genre that forced itself into the hearts of its listeners and its name onto the pages of world dictionaries is the world’s youngest genre. It has however captured the world like no other and is now known, listened to and followed by the international community. Its notoriety is just as great as that of another Jamaican icon The Honourable Mr. Usain Bolt. And like Bolt it has earned its stripes.
This music can be as nurturing and as calm as its classical associates or as raucous as the American rock, but whether you need a quiet evening of peaceful relaxation or a night of raunchy entertainment, reggae music is the desired guest. There is absolutely no genre that is more flexible or entertaining and none that provides the variety.
If you are a student and need background music while you study, a professional needing to concentrate on the current problem, or an artisan needing buoyancy to help you forget about the physical intensity of the present job, there is a song for you. The pulsating music that is always played with a super heavy baseline and numerous wind instruments is always timed by a meticulous drumbeat, while a guitar, piano or both keep a slightly off-beat/between-beat tempo.
If you are like me you listen to Reggae music every day so you know exactly what I am talking about. Reggae is medicine. Its therapeutic measures keeps its listeners on a musical high. Lifting them up when they are feeling low and changing all moods of sadness to one of ecstatic cheerfulness.
