Today, I want to present to you Roots Reggae.
Reggae has different genres (did you know that?) check out this Link for a description of the differences. The songs I'm introducing would be classified as Roots Reggae because it has a distinct message along with the style in which the song is sung. Mostly roots reggae is sung by Rastafarians and has some message that may include situations or circumstances people face due to politics, love, family life, or be based on some reference to Africa, peace, "Babylon", things like that.
I've posted two Roots Reggae songs below
The first is Untold Stories, its about life and the economy and It's effects on people. My favorite part is " When mama spend her last and send you go class...... never you ever play"
