Are you tired of listening to the same old pop-rock tunes with unoriginal cheesy lyrics over and over again? I feel the same way. I wanted to find a different kind of music to listen to. I wanted to listen to music whose lyrics I could relate to me in a way. And whose rhythm would strike a chord within me. I was amazed by the variety of music, some of which I have never even heard of. But among these, I enjoyed listening to reggae music the most. Also known as Jamaican music, Reggae has entered into the realm of mainstream music in recent years.
The genre of music appeals to many listeners because of its off-beat rhythms and soulful beats. In fact, what many people don’t know is that modern hip hop music was heavily influenced by the Reggae music scene back in the days of Bob Marley and the other greats. Another thing I like about this kind of music is how people love dancing to it.
Ever since the invention of the music video, Reggae videos have become very popular among people of all ages. You may think that I am pertaining to the music videos of popular artists like Sean Paul and Jah Cure. However, I am actually talking about recordings of reggae dances.
These dances are great because they are passionate, spontaneous, and heart-filled performances. You don’t need to be a professional dancer to dance to Reggae music. You just need to put your heart in it. My favorite kind of Reggae video is the Passa Passa video. Passa Passa is a weekly street party that is held from 11pm till morning the next day.
Reggae music artists, professional dancers and dance crews join the huge crown of people who attend and dance during these street celebrations. It’s just night after night of fun and laughter for the old and young alike.
