ska was the dominant music form coming out of Jamaica in the early 60's. It combined elements of Caribbean mento and calypso with American jazz and rhythm and blues. Ska is characterized by a walking bass line accented with rhythms on the off beat. we love playing ska, as its fast tempo makes you want to dance.
rOCKSTEADY WAS THE NEXT STAGE OF JAMAICAN MUSICAL PROGRESSION. iT WAS MUCH SLOWER, AND MORE RELAXED THAN SKA. I ALWAYS LIKE THE TALE THAT ROCKSTEADY KICKED OFF IN THE SUMMER OF '67, WHEN IT WAS TOO HOT TO DANCE THE SKA. ROCKSTEADY was the dominant style of music in Jamaica for nearly two years, performed by many of the artists who helped establish reggae.
