Toronto has been ground zero for reggae music in Canada dating back to the late 1960s, thanks to the influx of Caribbean immigrants largely from Jamaica. Whether reggae has been presented in its ska, roots reggae or dancehall form, Toronto has also quietly been home to numerous global reggae icons with direct ties to Jamaica's premier ska band, Skatalites, all the way to one of reggae's most legendary recording studios and record labels Studio One. Join us in the vibrant Toronto neighborhood of Eglinton West - affectionately referred to as Little Jamaica and where the first reggae record shops in Toronto resided - as we celebrate world-class, Toronto based reggae vibes with an eye to the future.
