These are my top picks for best ska albums of all time. The styles are all over the place on this list, some old, some new; some easy and some quite hard.
A great song always makes a connection -- with your heart, your body, your head, sometimes with your voice, when you can't stop singing or humming along. The DJs of KDHX know that feeling, and they love sharing it with the world. These are the songs that truly connected with them -- and we hope with you -- in 2014.
Matisyahu brings his Jewish heritage and new music into the lexicon of reggae. His new album "Akeda" still finds him exploring his faith and expanding his music vocabulary with reggae dominating his soul.
Hailing from Masaya, Nicaragua, Milly Majuc fuses ska, reggae, Latin music and contemporary rock in ways that few bands would dare, let alone imagine. Just try to keep from dancing along to the track "Giovana."
Sounding a bit like the Wailers, in their days with Lee Perry producing, Taj Weekes and Adowa combine the best of reggae groove, strong vocals and social commentary.
Enthralled with roots culture and ardently passionate about music, Groundation's Harrison Stafford epitomizes the progressive master of reggae.
With a following that could rival the Grateful Dead, SOJA gives us all a piece of hope and happiness with their latest musical offering.
