Welcome to the home of International Reggae Day.

 

International Reggae Day (IRD), the annual global celebration of Jamaican music culture, will this year, spotlight “60 Years of Ska music”, an important part of Jamaica’s music culture, particularly fitting as Jamaica observes its 60th year of Independence. 

 

Ska music culture laid the foundation for Jamaica’s popular lifestyle music as a global export and its creative influence has inspired generations of musicians and fans around the world, spawning new adaptations of the genre.

 

IRD invites media and fans around the world to celebrate this important era in global  music culture. Participating media in Jamaica and internationally, are invited to spotlight the music and legends of Ska, and highlight the genre’s impact.

 

Reggae lovers and fans around the world, show your love for Jamaican music culture by participating in today’s virtual Reggae Ska60 Party.
