The word Reggae has been derived from 'rege-rege', a Jamaican saying for "rags" or old clothing. In 1960 Reggae began to evolve through different styles such as Rocksteady and Ska. It is music from and for the people of Jamaica and speaks of struggle and hope. Reggae became internationally recognised of course through the artist Bob Marley in the 1970's.
