Jamaica found its soul in 1962. Freed from colonial rule, Jamaicans were busy creating a new musical language, combining traditional African music with elements of American jazz and R&B, and broadcasting it from every street-corner sound system on the island.

This is the birth of reggae. Big Fish Audio cranks up the sound system and takes you back to the island roots with Dread: Roots Reggae.

From the frenzied sound of The Skatalites, to the rock-steady throb of the Heptones and Bob Marley, this rhythm is irresistible.
