2016 Best Reggae Album

The Grammy's were held last month and the winner for Best Reggae album was Morgan Heritage. I had never heard of this group until they did a concert in town recently but they've been performing for 22 years now. The list of nominees for reggae albums are primarily soul reggae, while I'm more a fan of dancehall reggae.  I was surprised by Barrington Levy's album Acousticalevy, it's an acoustic version of his popular songs. My favorite song from Jah Cure's album is Rasta which you can listen to below. I also included some tracks from the other nominated albums and a couple tracks from Mavado and Vybz Kartel tracks to show you what dancehall reggae is like.  Let me know what you think, do you prefer soul or dancehall reggae?

  1. You're taking me back to high school with this post! I listened to reggae all the time then. I haven't heard dancehall reggae before...thanks for sharing it!
