Music from Jamaica

This week I will be featuring music from Jamaica.  Seeing as the most popular genre in Jamaica is reggae/ska, I will be featuring artists of this genre to share with you the music of Jamaica.   Jamaican music has had great influence on music styles in other countries includes the practice of toasting, which was brought to New York City and evolved into rapping.  British genres as lovers rock and jungle music are also influenced by Jamaican music.
