Celebrate Reggae music at Goa Sunsplash 2019 on 12th and 13th January

A music genre that originated in Jamaica in the 1960s, Reggae has come a long way since then, infiltrating the music scene in a big way. It has strong links with Rastafarianism, which is an Afrocentric religion that developed in Jamaica somewhere in the 1930s. Rastafarianism was born with the aim of promoting Pan-Africanism. It is used to refer to a wide range of Jamaican dance music but is actually quite distinct by itself. Reggae music is influenced a lot by a style called traditional mento along with American jazz and rhythm and blues which was popular in America, especially in New Orleans. Now, this style of music has evolved by leaps and bounds and Goa gets to host Goa Sunsplash 2019 on the 12th and 13th of January at Riva Beach Resort in Mandrem.
