Most people’s first association with reggae is Jamaica, but this kind of music has also spread to other parts of the world. Culture.pl presents how Jamaican music culture became popular in Poland before and after the transformative year of 1989.
According to Wikipedia, Reggae is one of the most popular music genres in Poland. The Rastafari philosophy is considered to constitute the main influence on Polish reggae.
The majority of songs are sung in Polish, yet a Silesian group R.A.P. provides an important exception to both of the above, since its members clearly stated to have nothing to do with the rasta movement and sung almost exclusively in English.
