Not enough threads on the English speaking Caribbean on here.
Here's one to celebrate one of the greatest contributions this region has given to the world.

Let's go way back to the Roots, Rocksteady, Mento days and celebrate also the best of Dub, Ska, Dancehall, Calypso and Mento.

I know quite a bit on Latin American reggae and British ska so will contribute with a bit of that too.

I'll start with a couple from Colombia; Reggae, Dub & Ska...some will have local influences like the genre merge of Cumbia-Ska in the last video.

Dub Killer Combo
