It's also worth mentioning that reggae doesn't simply represent street Jamaican culture and associated with youth and rebellion but also some lyrics deal with religion, to be exact with Rastafarianism. It's like a clash of both, probably totally different sides of Jamaica.

I do think articles at http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-reggae-music.htm and musicessay.org/bob-marley/ could help you a lot with writing.

Expertise

I can answer a broad range of questions on reggae music, its history, and the religious and social factors that have influenced its development in Jamaica and elsewhere. I also have a similarly broad knowledge base for old school Punk Rock (circa 1976-1982).

Experience

A performing musician for 20 years, I have traveled extensively in Jamaica and England as well as the USA, always with an eye and an ear for music.

Publications
In the early 80s I conducted interviews and wrote for numerous underground music magazines: Paranoia, Flipside, etc. More recently I have written about sports for Bartcop.com
