Coxsone Dodd, Duke Reid, and Prince Buster were influenced by Caribbean mento and calypso, along with American Jazz, and R&B. Ska morphed out of that influence.
They were originally trying to copy some of the more uptempo late-1950s American rhythm and blues recordings such as Domino's "Be My Guest".

Ska is a precusor to Rocksteady and Reggae.
