Reggae “The music and lyrics that together constitute the popularphenomenon of reggae are a unique combination ofcommunicative elements that attest to a distinct historical eraand emancipatory orientation toward a newly decolonizedworld (Tracy 2005).”“Music does not exist autonomously of other social,economic and political institutions. Music may still be able tochange the world as well as reflecting it, but, when we talk ofmusic’s politics, we are not just talking of the way itarticulates ideas and emotion. We are also talking of thepolitics that shape it (Schumann 2009).”
Target Reggae has a rebellious and political history; therefore,the best people to market this to would be collegestudents
