Jamaican mento music has pretty much influenced ska and reggae music and it features acoustic instruments.

Lloyd Bradley, reggae historian and author of the seminal reggae book, Bass Culture, said that Lee Scratch Perrys seminal 1976 dub album, Super Ape, contained some of the purest mento influences he knew
