The Pinoy Reggae culture has deep roots in the country that traces as far back as the 1960s. This popular Jamaican genre contributed to a lot of other musical genres such as new waves of ska, punk, dancehall, hip hop, and underground bass music. Last year, UNESCO added the reggae music of Jamaica as a part of the lists of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
It wasn’t until the late 70s in the Philippines that a reggae band was formed. One of the pioneers of the Pinoy Reggae music scene was Cocojam. The band played a pivotal role in developing local festivals and concerts. Cebu City is dubbed as the reggae capital of the Philippines. If you’re someone who wants to relax and listen to music that will calm you down, look no further—Pinoy reggae music is the cure for that.
