Despite originating in Jamaica, New Zealanders took to reggae music when it arrived on our shores, particularly after a visit from Bob Marley in the '70s.

Author, musician and music journalist Gareth Shute of the AudioCulture website is with us to talk about the genre and it's influence on New Zealand music and culture.
