        Reggae

        "Chuck Vanderchuck's 'Something Something' Explosion" is designed to help children ages 6 to 9 understand music and music composition by teaching basic musical concepts and performance skills through the study of popular song styles from around the world. Children are introduced to a new musical style: reggae. They learn about the culture from which reggae was born and then learn to perform basic rhythmic and melodic patterns in that style through the use of fun, interactive games. 

        The History of Reggae

        In this clip from "Chuck Vanderchuck's 'Something Something' Explosion," Chuck and Ramona break down the history of Reggae music. Reggae music started in Jamaica in the late 1960s. It developed from two earlier forms of Jamaican music: ska and rocksteady. Ska was first and fast. Rocksteady was like ska but much slower. After a while, musicians wanted to play something that was slower than ska, but faster than rocksteady. This is how Reggae came to be. Reggae has a 4/4 beat with guitar or piano accents on the off beats.
