Reggae Music To Be Protected By The U.N.

November 28, 2018

'Reggae has been added to a list of international cultural treasures which the United Nations has deemed worthy of
protecting and promoting.

The music, which grew out of Jamaica in the 1960s thanks to artists like Toots and the Maytals, Peter Tosh and Bob Marley, was added to the collection due to its "intangible cultural heritage".

Reggae is "cerebral, socio-political, sensual and spiritual," said Unesco.

It has "penetrated all corners of the world," added a Jamaican spokesperson.

Reggae followed on from the ska and rocksteady genres - other early pioneers included Lee Scratch Perry and Prince Buster'.

Doesn't matter black or white, rich or poor, young or old, good music is good music - glad to see reggae getting the international recognition and respect it deserves!

So realistically, what does this "protection" mean?

Hopefully it "protects" the genre from soft-ass Cali roots bands...tongue sticking out smiley

Reggae is Jamaica’s rebel music – it doesn’t need establishment approval
