Why Dancehall & Ska?

Dancehall and ska have roots that date back to the late 1950s in Jamaica, making them vital genres in the history of Caribbean music. They both derive from reggae and incorporate elements of various music styles such as mento, calypso, jazz, and rhythm and blues. Dancehall is known for its rhythmic beats and catchy melodies that instantly get you moving, while ska brings a fusion of upbeat tempos, brass instruments, and captivating lyrics.
