Reggae music is a genre that originated in Jamaica in the late 1960s. It is characterized by its distinctive rhythm, which is often referred to as the "one drop" beat. The lyrics of reggae songs often address social and political issues, as well as themes of love and spirituality. Traditional reggae music often features a strong bassline, guitar and keyboard melodies, and a prominent use of percussion instruments such as drums and bongos. It has influenced many other genres of music, including hip hop and electronic music.
