Roots reggae is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the 1960s and 1970s. It is characterized by its heavy basslines, prominent drums, and socially conscious lyrics that often address issues such as poverty, oppression, and political corruption. The genre is closely associated with Rastafarianism and often incorporates elements of African and Caribbean music. Roots reggae has been influential in the development of other genres such as dub and dancehall.
