Now Playing #reggae-greats-of-the-1960 #70s-some-of-the-best-reggae-tunes

When reggae music reached more popular international acclaim was after singer Jimmy Cliff released a movie called “The Harder They Come” with a powerful socio-political storyline and an equally strong reggae soundtrack. This sudden global attention and interest in the music paved the way for possibly reggae’s biggest superstar, #BobMarley, to become a worldwide #legend, and the name most associated with the genre. Today reggae music has spurred the innovation of a whole new range of musical styles, like modern Jamaican #Dub, and been infused into many other popular genres, like hip-hop and rap. Yet still, you can find bands in every corner of the world playing that authentic, roots reggae like it was when it started out in #Jamaica over 50 years ago.
