Best Reggae artists ever

Music can move people like nothing else, it can change your way of experiencing life and it can change even your life. That is because music is not only art, it is life, it is emotions, memories, music and everything what makes life good, interesting and worth living.

Although there are many genres and forms of music, there are only a few that can give you the full experience. One of those is reggae music, with its calm and special sound, well used instruments and interesting and emotional lyrics. But it is not the music itself and its characteristics that makes it special, that are the musicians and artists, and here are a few of the best ones in reggae music.

One of the first reggae and ska bands ever and the best one to this day is the band called The Wailers, formed by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer in 1963. They defined Jamaican music and made it what it is today and even shaped reggae music in the most important period. As the band lead, Bob Marley, was the best known member of this band and became an icon after his death when he was only 36 years old.

Other important reggae pioneers and artistic masterminds are Prince Buster, Desmond Dekker and Ken Boothe. They all were there when the first reggae tunes were created and were able to make their contribution to this music genre. The names in the reggae world today, that make good music and make an important contribution are Ziggy Marley, Morgan Heritage and Jimmy Cliff.

The last one is an icon in Jamaica, a multi-instrumentalist, musician, singer and overall artist, he is the only living person that holds the Order of Merit. Morgan Heritage is not a person, it is a band that is formed by five children of reggae, as they call themselves, you should listen to their music, it is quite good.
