|Grammy Academy Recognizes These Jamaican Women as Essential to Reggae and Dancehall
The Recording Academy, which presents the prestigious Grammy music awards, has named some of the women who were instrumental in shaping the sounds of reggae and dancehall music.

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Academy highlighted four of the women it identified as foundational to the development of reggae and dancehall.
