Dancehall Reggae: Popular Jamaican Music

One form of popular Jamaican music is dancehall music. It is a sort of watered down version of reggae and like reggae it speaks daringly of religion and politics although not directly. In the 1980s when digital instruments became known and available they changed the sound of reggae and made dancehall (raga) with quicker rhythms. In 1990s you saw the rise of artists such as Sizzla and Capleton and the strong union between dancehall and Rastafari.

The dancehall music has been criticized by international organizations as well as individuals because the lyrics are violent and anti homosexual. However, the themes of the lyrics are varied and do not just deal with violence. Dancehall music received its name from the Jamaican dance halls that played popular Jamaican recordings on local sound systems.

As dancehall music became more popular there were new moves created that gave parties and stage performances more energy. Some hip hop moves came from various dancehall dances. Some of those dances are: Whine UP, Boosie bounce, Drive By Sweep and more.

There are two forms of Reggae: the conscious reggae and reggae fusion.
