Entry Description

As a music scene, ska was born in Jamaica in the 1950s and made its way through immigrants to Britain shortly afterwards. In the 70s, mainly with the help of 2-Tone, ska evolved to a fully fledged sub-culture, later on divided into the additional reggae and rocksteady styles.Existing alongside skinhead culture, there’s a definitive aesthetic associated with ska; what you look like matters. The haircut, clothes and the brand of your scooter – all these things play a pivotal role alongside the music you listen to.
