Jamaica is the birthplace of ska, rocksteady and reggae.
And a new box set gives new scope to the history of all this great music.
It’s called “Reggae Golden Jubilee 50th Anniversary, Origins of Jamaican Music.”
It was compiled by Edward Seaga.
He’s the former Prime Minister of Jamaica, serving during the 1980s.
Before that, he led the JLP, or Jamaica Labor Party.
And before that Seaga was a record producer.
Over the years, Seaga has watched as Jamaican music production and musical culture changed.
Here’s Edward Seaga talking about the historic moment in 1978 when Bob Marley coaxed him and political rival Michael Manley on stage the One Love Concert.
And watch the historic moment from the “Marley” documentary by Kevin MacDonald.
