Transcript of Quinn Murphy Reggae

Thank You!
The start of
The first music of reggae was recorded on 1951. The music was mostly played by poor people of the Jamaican ghettos. In 1954 Ken Khouri started Jamaica's first record label, "Federal Records".This led to the "bluebeat" groups, which basically were Jamaica's version of the New Orleans sound. They usually featured saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, drums and bass. Soon the bass became the dominant instrument, and the sound evolved into the "ska". some big artists of the time were Robert Nesta Marley or known as Bob Marley, Buju Bantan and Ken Khouri.
