Reggae is deeply linked to Rastafari, an Afrocentric religion which developed in Jamaica in the 1930s, aiming at promoting pan-Africanism. Soon after the Rastafarian movement appeared, the international popularity of reggae music became associated with and increased the visibility of Rastafari and spread its gospel throughout the world.
Reggae music is an important means of transporting vital messages of Rastafari. The musician becomes the messenger and as Rastafari see it, “the soldier and the musician are tools for change.”
Stylistically, reggae incorporates some of the musical elements of rhythm and blues, jazz, mento (a celebratory, rural folk form that served its largely rural audience as dance music and an alternative to the hymns and adapted chanteys of local church singing), calypso and also draws influence from traditional African folk rhythms. One of the most easily recognisable elements is offbeat rhythms; staccato chords played by a guitar or piano (or both) on the offbeats of the measure. Wikipedia.
