While reggae #music originated in #Kingston, #Jamaica, in the early #1960s, its popularity in the U.S. is almost as great as it is in its country of origin. Maybe that's because reggae is also a bit of a melting pot.

The word #reggae originates from "rege-rege," a slang word for tattered clothing ("rags") and likely refers to its hodgepodge of influences, including both traditional and contemporary Jamaican music, like #ska and mento, as well as American #R&B. #nowplaying, #trending #60s #70s #80
