types of reggae

There are different types of reggae. These are often a clash between two music genres that make up a sub-genre.

Ragga Metal is one. Ragga Metal is a clash between reggae and metal. We also have the reggae-fusion, hip-hop – rap kinda reggae which is reggae with a more rap singing instead of the ”typical” reggae singing style. Rap with a reggae kinda beat.

First there was Ska, out of which evolved Rocksteady, which in turn became Reggae, which has developed into a number of different styles: Roots, Dub, Dub Poetry, Toasting, Lover’s Rock, Niyabingi (traditional drumming and chanting) and Dancehall (both Slack and Conscious).
