These top reggae fusion bands may seem like odd bedfellows, but they are all have elements of reggae fusion in their sound. While reggae music became popular in the 1970s, a subgenre evolved that didn't reflect the spiritual and political nature of traditional reggae songs. The beauty of reggae fusion is that the genre keeps evolving and the sound is becoming more intricate and commercial as the years go on. This list includes famous reggae fusion artists as well as lesser known ones, so you might not recognize all the names of these reggae fusion bands.
