Originally formed in 1987 in Santiago, Chile, Gondwana has remained one of the most successful and celebrated Latin reggae bands in the game. But some might ask, what exactly is Latin reggae? As Bob Marley’s music took the world by storm in the 1970s, reggae music’s socially conscious philosophies spread to various areas of Latin America, becoming quite popular in Afro-Caribbean regions. Latin reggae artists convey the socially conscious messages of roots reggae in their music, but do so in their native languages of Spanish or Portuguese. Latin reggae also has a stylistic and cultural twist that infuses musical elements from various regions of Latin American into the reggae rhythms themselves. Source:Intity Weekly
