It's got all the expected acts, a nice feature when label disputes can all too easily leave great bands off a compilation. One person found this helpful.

What does Ska Mean? Originating in the Caribbean island of Jamaica, Ska is an amazing musical genre. It combines elements found in Jazz, Soul, Motown, R&B and Calypso, but its distinctive offbeat rhythm comes directly from a traditional form of Jamaican music called Mento. It first appeared as a distinct musical styl. n the early 1960s, and although the "first wave" waned in popularity around 1966, its charm endured, giving birth to Rocksteady, Reggae, Two-Tone, and many other Jamaican and Jamaican-influenced musical forms since. Check out their album Opportunities Knocked which has a great mix of ska, punk and reggae in the unique Skandalz style. It is yet to be seen what exactly it will discover, but it is expected to provide more stringent tests for the General Theory of Relat. ity, and give more information about the origin of the Universe, among other things.

Rhythms del Mundo Classics is the follow-up album to the internationally successful album Rhythms del Mundo, with the Buena Vista Social Club appearing with artists including The Killers, Amy Winehouse, Keane, Jack Johnson, The Rolling Stones, KT Tunstall and Rodrigo y Gabriela. Proceeds from the album benefited the environmental non-profit organization Artists Project Earth, which raises awareness and funds for climate change projects and for disaster relief efforts.
