Movement of Jah People

The emigration of Jamaicans and other West Indians to Europe and North America has both spread the vibe and blended other musical ideas to Reggae. London, England; New York, USA and Toronto, Canada have been popular destinations for Jamaican emigrees since World War II. In these, and many other places over the years, Reggae has developed from a “memory of Yard” to a musical form interpreted by singers and players from many roots.

All in all, Reggae has exerted an international musical and social impact remarkable for a relatively small nation – The Loudest Island in the World.
