In the early 1960s, Ska was the dominant music genre of Jamaica where it originated. Ska is a combined musical element of Caribbean Mento and Calypso with a bit of American Jazz as well as Rhythm and Blues. This genre is unique because it the music has a walking bass line, emphasized with rhythms on the upbeat, perfect for dancing. The ska dance moves are upbeat, quick, exciting and humorous.
