Royalty Free Reggae MusicOff-beat music genre, Reggae, developed literally off the beat. Unlike most other forms of music, the emphasis is on the third beat of the measure, instead of the first (downbeat). Its roots hail from Africa, by way of Jamaica, where Reggae was developed in the 1960’s, as well as from jazz, and R&B.

The music line is often slower than some other Caribbean styles, but sly and seductive, and well suited for background music designed to put you into a relaxed, stay-in-the-present state.
