What is Reggae to you?

Reggae is the soul of a people. It encapsulates the irie vibes of Jamaica and the struggle and triumphs of a people. Reggae is a living, breathing narrative that shows how the heart and soul of a people can withstand the test of time and resonate with others. But most importantly, like all music, it is self-expression.

As such Reggae may be for enjoyment, political statements, an outlet, or just capture every day life. For many, it is their culture, their every day, what they whine and unwind to.

Reggae has come to be a massive cultural and unifying force around the world. These are some of the things that come to mind when I think of reggae.
