You gotta live there for a while to vibe the music.

also know the slang used like 'ire' which means 'randy'

ie: are you feelin ire, like the nite before, then hold be tight... sing this to any reggie type sound...

Roots man..

Try Bob Marley, excellent music. Buffalo Soldier is a particular fave of mine.

Bob Marley, UB40, Madness, The Specials. These are just some bands that play ska/reggae. Madness have a lot of ska but some have a very reggae feel, especially the dangermen seesions (Their latest album). Bob Marley and UB40 are an obvious choice but the specials have a very punky reggae style, worth a listen!
