Pioneers of Ska (Volume 1)

Pioneers of Ska (Volume 1)

Pioneers of Ska (Volume 1) is a compilation¬† of Ska music, which is characterised by a walking bass line accented with rhythms on the off beat. It was developed in Jamaica in the 1960s when Stranger Cole, Prince Buster, Clement “Coxsone” Dodd, and Duke Reid formed sound systems to play American rhythm and blues and then began recording their own songs.
