Storia dello ska, dagli anni '50 giamaicani fino alla diffusione nel mondo

La Giamaica, dove tutto è cominciato. Tra la fine degli anni ’50 e l’inizio degli anni ’60 una serie di fattori contribuirono a far nascere nell’isola il genere che tutti oggi conosciamo come ska. La Giamaica aveva alle sue spalle una lunga storia musicale, che raggiunse la notorietà mondiale grazie all’esplosione dello ska, che più avanti avrebbe dato vita anche a rocksteady e reggae. Fu la musica dell’indipendenza, ma fu anche la colonna sonora delle vite dei rude boys, giovani ed eleganti giamaicani, generalmente di bassa estrazione sociale, che ebbero un ruolo fondamentale nella diffusione di questo genere all’estero, anche a seguito dell’ondata migratoria verso l’Inghilterra all’inizio degli anni ’60.

Prima dello ska c’erano stati il fenomeno dei sound system, il mento e il calypso, il jump blues, la passione per il jazz americano. All’interno di questa categoria siamo andati alla ricerca di quello che ha preceduto lo ska giamaicano e non solo, tra aneddoti e particolari eventi storico-culturali che abbiamo provato a ricostruire.
