Reggae Outernational (2) (Webmaster Column)

Dubroom Online - Edition December 4, 2007


WWW, December 4 2007 - Sometimes, you see Reggae categorized as "World Music". This is a term invented by Babylon to basically describe all non-western forms of local music.

Reggae, in this context, is portrayed as a local form of Jamaican Music which is obviously not an accurate description.

But still, Reggae Music can be seen as "World Music", in a way.

For Reggae is very much a music played by local artists all over the planet, each one adding their own particular -local- flavor.

Give Thanks, One Love,
