洛克斯代迪 Rocksteady

Rocksteady其实代表的正是牙买加音乐的一个高峰,她是ska的其中一个分支。Ska音乐流行于1960至1965年之间,到60年代中期逐渐演变为Rocksteady音乐。Rocksteady与Ska相比,它的速度明显放慢,节奏及旋律更为细腻丰富;其乐队完全采用节奏布鲁斯的组合方式,将吉他作为节奏乐器,用切音技巧演奏松弛而富有韵律的节奏音型;贝司声部的旋律也更具独立性,与华丽的主唱声部构成对位,成为美妙的低音铺垫,相对来说要求有一定的技术性和演奏技巧。60年末,Rocksteady又发展成更具国际性的Reggae(雷鬼)音乐。实际上,很难在Rocksteady和Reggae之间划出明显的界限,只是Reggae比Rocksteady更为细腻,更多地使用电声乐器和更加国际化、商业化而已,没有Rocksteady那么明显的牙买加传统地方特性。不过Rocksteady在Reggae乐的发展中扮演了重要的角色,Rocksteady主要代表艺人有Alton Ellis、Ken Boothe与The Melodians等,他们的歌曲动听,歌词却布满了政治意味,对接踵而至的Reggae做了很好的铺垫,成为Reggae乐的先锋。 Rocksteady was a style of popular music that developed out of ska in the 1960s. In its simplest terms, rocksteady is half-speed ska with the trombone replaced by piano and prominent bass. The lyrics are more socially and politically conscious, and there is a greater focus on harmonies, particularly in trios like the Heptones, Gaylads, Dominoes, Aces, and Wailers. Other major figures include Alton Ellis and Ken Boothe. With its relaxed beat and social-protest lyrics, the music served as a forerunner to reggae.
