Do You Like to Ska?

I think the best explanation for ‘Ska’ is “Ska (play /ˈskɑː/Jamaican [skja]) is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the late 1950s, and was the precursor to rocksteady andreggae.[1] Ska combined elements of Caribbean mento and calypso with American jazz and rhythm and blues. It is characterized by awalking bass line accented with rhythms on the upbeat. In the early 1960s, ska was the dominant music genre of Jamaica and was popular with British mods. Later it became popular with many skinheads“. Taken from Wikipedia.

But what does Ska actually look like?

I wonder how many Skinheads know that this where their music originated from?
