Ska is a genre of music that originated in Jamaica in the late 1950s. It is a combination of Caribbean mento and calypso with American jazz and rhythm and blues. It is characterized by a walking bass line accented with rhythms on the off-beat. Ska music features horns, usually trumpets and trombones, playing the melody and rhythm. The tempo of ska is usually up-tempo and the lyrics often focus on themes of love and social issues.
