Ras Quinteseb Live Performance 'Bado Eger' on Seifu on EBS stage


Ras Quinteseb Live Performance 'Bado Eger' on Seifu on EBS stage. Reggae is a type of music that came from Jamaica in the late 1960s and became popular there. In the 1970s, a style called "international style" was very popular in Britain, the United States, and Africa. Many people thought it spoke for those who were not treated well. 


Reggae music comes from Jamaica and it was first based on ska music. It has a strong four-beat rhythm with drums, bass guitar, electric guitar, and a special stick called a "scraper". This stick is rubbed by another stick to make a unique sound. 


The drum and bass made a new music called dub. The way the guitar sounds at the end of measures is a part of songs that show how people in the ghetto feel about the culture of white people. The sound of the guitar, called skengay, sounds like in the ghetto. 


This is because asking means a gun or knife. Reggae music shows how life is hard in the ghetto. This music was a part of the new and rough culture of young people who wanted to be gangsters. In the 1960s, Jamaican musicians changed the style of ska music, which used to be fast and happy. 


Producers like Duke Reid and Coxsone Dodd helped slow down the music. This happened after Jamaica became its own country in 1962. Rock Steady was a type of music that didn't last long, but it made performers like the Heptones and Alton Ellis popular.
