Ska Radio Stations

Ska music originated in jamaica during the late 1950s and developed from rocksteady and reggae. The genre combined the caribbean mento and calypso with american jazz and rhythm and blues (rnb). Commonly, the history of ska is divided into three periods of time: the 1st wave being the original jamaican scene of the 1960s, the 2nd wave being the english 2 tone ska revival of the 1970s, and finally the 3rd wave revival of the 1980s and 1990s which became popular in the united states and blended ska with punk rock. Ska music is defined by its walking bassline which is emphasised with rhythms on the upbeat. Ska developed in Jamaica in the 1960s when Prince Buster, Clement “Coxsone” Dodd, and Duke Reid formed sound systems to play American rhythm & blues and then began recording their own songs. Some suggest ska dates to earlier times, however. In the early 1960s, ska was the dominant music genre of Jamaica and was popular with British mods. Later it became popular with many skinheads.

Music historians typically divide the history of ska into three periods: the original Jamaican scene of the 1960s; the 2 Tone ska revival of the late 1970s in Britain, which fused Jamaican ska rhythms and melodies with the faster tempos and harder edge of punk rock; and the third wave of ska, which involved bands from the UK, other European countries (notably Germany), Australia, Japan, South America and the US, beginning in the 1980s and peaking in the 1990s.
