2019-11-08 Global Ska

The Skatalites - album cover

Sometime back in the 1950s, some Jamaican musicians combined elements of jazz and R&B with calypso and mento, and ska was born. The new style thrived and spread, having offspring of its own (rocksteady and reggae). We hear ska from all over the planet this week, from its origins to its new home in Japan, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, and beyond.
