Reggae: Globalisation in reverse

Noted Jamaican musicologist, Dermot Husssey has observed reggae music’s global penetration as one of Jamaica’s greatest victories. Describing the music’s global reach as “globalisation in reverse”, he contends that this is a feat that only superpowers like Britain and America have matched.

“The penetration of reggae globally, is one of Jamaica’s greatest victories, especially as globalisation is becoming one of today’s more controversial topics,” Dermot Hussey told the recent Reggae Studies Unit lecture at the Undercroft of the University of the West Indies (UWI).
