I don't know any American who isn't aware of Reggae. I know of soca, calypso, and zouk but haven't had much experience in listening to them.

Can you be more specific? I'm mostly a reggae man, but I like all forms.

I like some reggae, dub especially, and I like calypso and mento a lot. Soca, bouyon, and zouk aren't as exciting to me with some soca just being sort of annoying.
