Ska is a fusion. It combines a distinct Jamaican mento folk rhythm with R&B. Then the drums come in on the second and fourth beats which carries the “American” feel. The guitar then emphasizes the up of the second, third and fourth beats. This is what carries the Jamaican Mento sound.
Ska became a real-world mixing pot that represented the social events of the time
The concept of the “Rude Boys” came back, and there were brawls between the ‘middle class’ and the ‘lower class/Rude Boys’ at concerts. This may have been one of the reasons for the decrease of ska (venues became increasingly more difficult to find)
The bands were often of mixed race and carried the ‘mixing’ theme with their mixed color (two tone) suits
These “Two Tone” suits gave rise to the “Two Tone” recording label
