For those, who are not familiar with Ska, it originated in Jamaica in the late 1950s, and is a combined musical element of Caribbean Mento and Calypso with a bit of American Jazz and Rhythm and Blues.

In the early 1960s, Ska was the dominant music genre of Jamaica and was popular with the other communities as well, including the British community. It stands out because the music is upbeat, quick and exciting.
