Project Proposal

For my project I am going to be researching and presenting how Jamaican Dub, Dancehall, and Reggae impacted the music industry in the 1970’s, and up until now. I will be getting in depth with the certain influences that these different genres of music exploit, such as violence, sex, and homophobia, while others explore love, social issues, and happiness. I will be outlining how the music was brought about, how it modernized over-time, and how it influenced other music genres such as Pop, Hip-Hop, and even R&B.
