The Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album is an award presented at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1985 and originally called the Gramophone Awards, to recording artists for quality works in the reggae music genre.
Roots reggae is a subgenre of reggae that deals with the everyday lives and aspirations of Africans and those in the African Diaspora, including the spiritual side of Rastafari, Black Liberation, revolution and the honoring of God, called Jah by Rastafari. It also is identified with the life of the ghetto sufferer, and the rural poor.
If you like reggae, especially classic reggae, like Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals and Jimmy Cliff you will enjoy this album. One person found this helpful. The singers and instrumentalists are all highly renowned and span a large swath of Jamaican music history from ska to late roots and deejaying. Includes an informative booklet with photos. There is NO WAY I was going to miss this modern classic and the opportunity to hear these wonderful performers working together again, and if you truly love Jamaican music, neither should you.
