Ska is a music genera, originating during segregation's for integration. I think they were some of the first bands to have black and white people in bands together (not sure on that). Checker board was a really common thing to see, indicating unification of white people and black people. It was also big in the Jamaican islands, boots, and factory workers would shave their head, wear boots and wear suits. To mock the upper classes, kind of like an orginal punk. T
he first wave of Ska is heavily influenced by reggea. Second wave, was simpler, just about having a band with horns really more about roots in the original first wave of ska . The third is more rock punk influence, always with syncopation, horns and allot of bass guitar.
Ska and Punk go together.
can some one fix the typo its bugging me.
