SUB GENRES OF REGGAE Ska is the first major local Jamaican genre, flourishing in the 1960’s. It has fast, syncopated rhythm guitar stroke, driving horns and fast drums and bass. Many people associate the term mainly with 1980’s British Two Tone ska revival, which was a mixture of ska and punk attitude . Rocksteady is a slower musical style. Besides the low pace its main feature is the electric bass, which takes on the position of lead instrument with melodies and a high position in the mix. Rocksteady is also known for its vocal harmonies. Nyabhingi is a roots subgenre related to the Rastafarian group of the same name. It's characterised by hand-drumming derived from religious ceremonies Ragga, or Raggamuffin , is electronic dancehall music. The genre originally was produced on simple Casio keyboards but eventually other synthesisers have been added - Other sub genres of reggae music include dub, dancehall, roots reggae and modern dancehall.
