History Of Reggae – GRAMMY Museum


Moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares, this conversation explored the history of reggae and featured GRAMMY-winning reggae artist Ziggy Marley, Jamaican reggae singer and Nyabinghi drummer Ras Michael, Lloyd “Bread” McDonald of Jamaican reggae vocal group The Wailing Souls, and Carlton “Santa” Davis, who played drums for bands including Bob Marley & The Wailers.


The panelists discussed a range of topics, including early Jamaican pop music, the creation of reggae as a genre and its early pioneers, and its continued evolution with increasing politically charged lyrics reflecting the social injustices happening in Jamaica.
